The Intelligent Automation Imperative

Enterprises will invest over $40b in 2021 and $230b in 2025 in intelligent automation¹. While RPA and artificial intelligence are already changing how the world works, Gartner predicts² that by 2022 80% of RPA-centric automation implementations will derive their value from complementary intelligent automation technologies, such as machine learning, natural language processing, process mining, intelligent OCR, workflow/BPM, decision modelling, analytics, customer experience management, and cloud.
