If the news in the IT sector is anything to go by, 2019 is the year of the Rise of the Machines – Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is everywhere and promising a lot, such as increasing business agility, driving vast improvements in efficiency and creating a virtual workforce for your organisation.

But is RPA really anything new? For what purposes is RPA actually useful? Is RPA hyped up because it’s easily understood by people with buying power? What are the pitfalls of using RPA technology?

Ultimately, how important is it for you to factor RPA into your digital transformation agenda?

Gordon Cullum, CTO of Mastek UK, will chair this round-table event, part of Leeds Digital Festival, providing an opportunity to share your views and insights on RPA with your peers and to examine together whether RPA can help or hinder your digital transformation agenda.
