Robotic process automation (RPA) is a software technology that automates routine business tasks with software robots. Implementing an RPA solution for creating user accounts speeds up the process, reduces the risk of errors, and frees up time for the support team to deal with other more complex tasks. Therefore, it allows businesses to accelerate digital innovation and transformation relatively quickly and at a reasonable cost, resulting in increased efficiency, lower operational costs, higher revenues, and an improved employee and customer experience.
The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the necessity of coordinating automation across a business. This has accelerated the development of RPA as companies offer RPA as part of a broader toolkit of automation and AI technologies, allowing for end-to-end automation of more complex business processes.
The robotic process automation (RPA) thematic intelligence report gives an overview of the RPA value chain, case studies of RPA deployments, market size, growth forecasts, and the specialist RPA software and services vendors in the market.
Robotic Process Automation – Key Trends

COVID-19 highlighted the necessity of coordinating automation across a business. This has accelerated the development of RPA as companies move away from stand-alone automation capabilities and offer RPA as part of a broader toolkit of automation and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies, allowing for end-to-end automation of more complex business processes.
RPA has evolved into intelligent automation, wherein AI and other business process technologies—such as low-code development tools, process mining, intelligent document processing, and business process management (BPM)—are combined with RPA to facilitate enterprise-wide automation initiatives.
