What are BPM and RPA technologies?

  • How do we successfully use these technologies to enable and sustain process transformation and improvements?
  • What are the best practices for designing and deploying these solutions?
  • What are the typical implementation challenges and how do we overcome these?
  • What are the business benefits linked to these tools and how do we ensure those results are delivered?
