Leading developer of enterprise robotic process automation (ERPA) software Blue Prismtoday announced that it is sponsoring the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals’ (IAOP) 18th annual Outsourcing World Summit, the premier event for outsourcing professionals. Taking place Feb. 16-18 in Phoenix, AZ, the conference will draw more than 800 executives and professionals from more than 40 countries to discuss the industry’s latest trends and best practices, like ERPA and how software robots can be effectively applied to enhance business processes.
Outsourcers are at a critical inflection point where they must deliver differentiated, cost-effective solutions while completing core business processes and meeting aggressive business goals. By providing outsourcers with an efficient, accurate and cost effective process solution, ERPA is becoming increasingly prevalent and a key element of today’s outsourcing conversation.
James Swinford, Director of Services at Virtual Operations – a Blue Prism partner – and Balamurugan Arumugam, AVP of Business Process Services at Cognizant Technology, who will explore the benefits of ERPA in an event session, drawing on their own experiences to highlight lessons learned and best practices for effective deployment. Specifically, they’ll explain how ERPA has enabled Cognizant to configure software robots to capture and interpret existing applications for processing transactions, manipulating data, triggering responses and communicating with other digital systems. They will underscore how software robots can respond dynamically to the behavior of target systems and provide comprehensive machine intelligence – ensuring a productive and reliable delivery.
“ERPA is not only a helpful, but increasingly critical, tool in outsourcers’ arsenals,” said Alastair Bathgate, CEO, Blue Prism. “Through early adopters like Cognizant, the value of the technology has become incredibly clear, and the Outsourcing World Summit will shed light on how others must work ERPA into their strategies in order to stay competitive.”
Swinford and Arumugam’s session, “Reimagining Outsourcing with Robotic Process Automation: Its Impact on Delivery, Transformation and Competitiveness,” will take place on Tuesday, Feb. 17 at 4:40 pm PT.
