The Economic Impact of Automation

"The Economic Impact of Automation" event held on June 11, was filled with influential thought leaders from around the world! The complimentary event hosted by Wipro and The Institute for Robotic Process Automation was by invitation exclusively for Outsourcing Advisors. If you missed this event, not to worry, scroll down and view all of what was offered.

Why Do These Influencers Attend These Events?

'Many predict that RPA will reinvent the outsourcing business model. Others expect it to replace outsourcing. Either way a new playbook is being written as we speak. My radar says revolution not evolution.'

- Frank Casale, Founder & CEO, IRPA and Outsourcing Institute

'As Robotic Process Automation becomes an essential requirement in outsourcing deals, it becomes important to understand its impact on humans. Automation implemented without the consideration of human elements may impact its usefulness in delivering efficiencies and cause unexpected challenges undermining the true benefits of automation.'

-Tom Lang, VP, Strategic Engagement, Wipro

Robots and people are working side by side. Now is the perfect time to find out where automation will place you in the ever-changing workspace. This half-day briefing provided the “new playbook” and an opportunity to connect with leading advisory players and automation experts. If you are interested in joining our next event on RPA, join us December 3, 2015 in New York City for our Automation Innovation Conference.
