Workplace collaboration between humans and software robots promises greater efficiency, better compliance, and fewer errors. Such benefits are driving massive adoption of robotic process automation solutions.
Grandview Research estimates the RPA market will surge to nearly $9B by 2024, while Gartner predicts that 40% of large enterprises will adopt RPA by 2020.
The surge in bots has raised fears that they will automate many jobs out of existence. This is understandable, but also predictable and probably not realistic.
The same thing has occurred with the introduction of each new wave of technology, from locomotives to cars to industrial machines. But with each wave, as some roles were no longer necessary, enormous numbers of new roles sprang up — factory supervisors, machinists and mechanics, logistics experts, and many more — each requiring a unique set of skills.
RPA and process automation will be the same way, creating many new career opportunities. The question becomes, how can you tap into the enormous growth occurring in this field? The key is to expand your skills and position yourself to be in demand in the rapidly changing business environment. One way is to understand the three pillars of effective process automation — manage, automate, and optimize — and recognize that there will be increasing demand for people skilled in these disciplines.
This is fertile ground for those who take advantage of opportunities to learn, practice and eventually gain certification in technologies such as workflow and RPA.
