Robotic Process Automation(RPA) is the fastest growing segment in the Enterprise Software space. RPA can produce huge returns. The relatively quick (read: weeks) automation of repetitive processes helps organizations cut costs, increase efficiencies, improve accuracy, make customers happier and employees more productive. It can be a great money saver too. Instead of replacing or modifying complicated legacy systems for hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars, why not use RPA? Use cases are seemingly endless.
When done right, the value is certainly real. But perhaps not surprisingly, it’s not always realized. Many companies have experienced RPA gone wrong. There are some repeatable reasons for this. Here are three:
- The wrong use cases are selected for the initial implementation (either processes that are too complicated, or ones that aren’t repetitive enough to provide value) and ROI is never proven, disheartening the team and stalling out the initiative.
- The skills for RPA development and continual care and feeding don’t exist, are hard to find, or hard to keep employed. Often expensive consultants are used for the initial implementation, but it’s too expensive to retain them for the long haul, so momentum is lost and RPA fizzles out.
- RPA really starts to gain momentum when a double digit number of bots are developed and deployed. To get this far, many recommend (and rightly so) the creation of an RPA Center of Excellence. But doing so requires budget, building a team, evangelizing a new type of technology, etc. and these organization are often not budgeted for or not successful.
