The future of robotic process automation (RPA) is closely tied to the future of automation in general, which has significant implications for the workforce as a whole. We are already witnessing mature RPA use cases in action.

Businesses are turning to robotic process automation (RPA) as a way to streamline essential processes and extend the life of legacy systems.

Systems running on the SAP S/4HANA ecosystem where we can leverage the amazing potential of SAP BTP for customization, can gain maximum operational benefits using SAP IRPA for specific high volume use.

SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation software bots can increase the efficiency of automation platforms by completing tasks more quickly, freeing up employees to focus on more valuable work.

As we approach the middle of 2023, it’s a good time to reflect on how SAP iRPA will continue to shape the near future.

In this blog, we will explore the future of RPA and automation, and how it may affect the workforce in the coming years.

Observing the trends in the RPA space, we are attempting to answer questions regarding –
  • Which RPA trends will gain traction?
  • How organizations will derive value from RPA?
  • Will small and medium-sized players adopt RPA technology?
Let us delve deeper into this topic to gain further insights.

Emerging RPA Trends & Automation Transformations in 2023

Keeping up with the rapid pace of automation technology can be daunting, as new innovations emerge constantly, making it difficult to determine which ones can provide real value to your business both now and in the future.

At VC ERP, our mission is to guide you in discovering the latest and most advanced tools that are worth investing in, and to provide clear and concise explanations of how they function.

Let’s examine the leading automation trends for 2023 to ensure your business remains ahead of the competition.

RPA will transform the Landscape of Business Automation

In 2023, the implementation of automation systems in businesses will see robotic process automation (RPA) as a prominent technology. Although automation may seem like a technical field, RPA will prove to be the core of how businesses begin implementing their automation systems.

Most businesses will likely implement RPA first to streamline their workflows, which will save both time and money. The versatility of RPA technology also enables its integration with complex automation systems, including intelligent document processing (IDP) and artificial intelligence (AI).

For example, businesses can use RPA to process order forms and deliveries and incorporate AI to suggest products to customers.

In 2023, RPA will evolve to take on platforms that require richer user interfaces and higher levels of AI. This advancement will enable companies to integrate RPA into their established processes seamlessly and manage their existing technologies effectively.

Intelligent Automation will Maximize RPA Success

RPA is the backbone of automation but it cannot independently automate all tasks required for businesses to thrive in the future.

There are tasks that require a human touch, like customer service, email reading and loan approvals. Intelligent automation, such as AI and IDP, can assist in automating these tasks.

RPA can efficiently complete rule-based tasks, on the other hand, intelligent automation uses machine learning to tackle more complex operations.

Machine Learning (ML) is an AI technology that enables computers to analyze data and recognize patterns, similar to how humans do.

Experts predict that the integration of AI capabilities will lead to innovative developments such as virtual healthcare platforms from CVS and Walgreens and digital baristas by Nestle Nespresso and Starbucks.

In 2023, companies will broaden their automation strategy to include creative and adaptive efforts.

Software Bots will Reimagine Workplaces

In large companies, employees often have to switch between multiple applications throughout their workday, which can be time-consuming and hinder productivity.

However, in 2023, we can expect more organizations to tackle this issue by implementing digital desktop assistants. These software robots can automate repetitive tasks such as data entry, opening and closing programs and organizing tasks in a way that minimizes wasted time.

Utilize virtual assembly-line systems and create a streamlined workflow for employees. Instead of having to navigate through different applications, the assistants can queue up a sequence of just-in-time tasks with all the necessary programs already opened and ready to use.

This approach is similar to how manufacturing assembly lines improved productivity in the past, and virtual assembly lines will have a similar effect on the digital workforce.

Semantic Automation will revolutionize the Capabilities of RPA

The word semantic means adding a meaning to a language or logic. Semantic automation implies adding semantic understanding to programming language.

RPA bots can achieve faster and more efficient completion of tasks by utilizing semantic automation to understand processes and make necessary internal adjustments within the program.

In essence, this represents a constant process of refining and optimizing workflows by the RPA bots to achieve the desired end result with greater efficiency.

The popularity of Low-code Platforms will Grow

Low-code platforms provide a means for individuals and businesses to create applications and systems with minimal coding requirements. Some of these platforms offer drag-and-drop interfaces that eliminate the need for coding altogether.

The core technology underlying low-code platforms is Robotic Process Automation (RPA), which is used to create workflows that can be activated with a simple drag-and-drop action.

These low-code platforms can significantly reduce the amount of effort required to create apps and systems.
