Closing comments and event conclusion
In 2019, the global Robotic Process Automation (RPA) market size was USD 1.40 billion. By 2027, it’s expected to reach USD 25.56 billion. We believe it’s no longer a choice of if but when to implement RPA, as more and more organizations adopt the technology.
This session will feature Reena Badesha, Digital Transformation Lead from Teekay, Jim Maholic, Senior Director, Value Engineering from UiPath, and will be facilitated by Shameiz Hemani, CEO & RPA Practice Lead from Greenlight Consulting, who will talk about what a successful program in RPA looks like. We will hear about the methods for understanding the high-level automation potential in organizations. We will also discuss how to make your business self-sufficient in this space after it is implemented. Join us to learn more about RPA.
