Discussion Forum - December 7, 2017 - "RPA and Cognitive computing: A powerful combination"
Organizations today have set out on aspirational automation journey to improve operational efficiency and transform service delivery. For many high-volume, low-complexity, rules-driven tasks, the opportunity to use RPA is clear. But for the same reason, the limits of RPA are equally clear: “faster and/or cheaper” does not always mean “more effective”.
It is on this frontier that cognitive computing becomes an enabler to unprecedented levels of automation, reducing costs dramatically and helping respond aggressively to disruption in the industry. This session will showcase real life examples on how organizations have fulfilled the promise of automation by complementing RPA with cognitive computing, and by putting together a holistic governance framework.
