Overview

Process automation has been widely adopted as a means to increase service availability, reduce cost and free up valuable employee time. But the use cases for the digital co-worker are few and companies are struggling to find enough skills, experience and best practice in all the implementations across line of business and industry to optimize the investment. Are the skills sets, the experience and the best practice needed to address that extended scope, and to optimizing the investment made, readily available? How much could an organization really automate? And is there a limit to what work a Digital Worker can perform?
