Is RPA right for your business?

From out of nowhere, the term “Robotic Process Automation” is suddenly one of the must-have technologies for businesses that operate at scale. Despite being one of a set of tools that have been around for years, it has had a serious makeover with the sprinkling of some Artificial Intelligence fairy dust and a new love for the ‘bot’ in business.
