‘Automation Conundrum’ focuses on the evolutionary stages of intelligent automation starting with RPA. This book gives a view on what these technologies are, where and how to apply them across functions and industry sectors and most importantly how to generate the maximum tangible value for the business. It also gives a perspective around the key challenges, risks and opportunities facing industries and how IA can be leveraged to tackle the same. Although, IA has successfully proven to generate business value it has also raised concerns over safety and security. This book also addresses those concerns viz impact on society, governments and need for regulations. In summary, it gives a new perspective to intelligent automation as a beginning of a journey into the future rather than the end.
