If you are a leading edge company looking at piloting or implementing Robotic Process Automation (RPA), you might be at a loss for how to decide between the available options. Spoiler alert: they are listed in the event description as cost reduction, quality control, risk management and scalability. That said, if you are considering RPA, you’ll want to hear more – after all, it is procurement that the company will look to for prospective supplier evaluation and selection.

I am presenting this event on Tuesday, and given my knowledge of the topics, preparation, and slides, I can wholeheartedly recommend it. Hours of research went into pulling together down-to-earth explanations, consumer implications, procurement considerations, etc. on blockchain, AI, digital transformation, machine learning, cognitive computing, and RPA. Besides that, the slides look amazing – mostly because they went through a designer. So please plan to join me!

And with an impressive panel of speakers, we can expect helpful honestly as well as seasoned insight.
