Key Findings & Highlights:

Business process transformation using RPA and AI typically undergoes an evolution within organizations from the application of RPA to largely “as-is” processes, to the application of RPA alongside increased levels of process streamlining and standardization, to the incorporation of NLP and ML alongside RPA to automate the ingest of unstructured documents; followed, finally, by a massive leap to reimagine processes and introduce new digital process models.

Despite the hype around RPA and AI technologies leading to the death of BPO and offshore delivery, quite the contrary is the case. The introduction of RPA and subsequently new digital process models is leading to increased penetration of the retained and shared services operations within organizations, and approximately 80% of RPA & AI-related business process transformation services is delivered from offshore.
