This event is part of The Cyber Intelligence Initiative Series sponsored by The Institute of World Politics. About the lecture: RPA is currently the fastest-growing enterprise technology, according to Gartner. RPA is also the core of hyper-automation, the number 1 strategic technology trend for 2020. Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is the technology allowing every level of government to deploy software robots to perform specific tasks in an automated way. RPA software uses a combination of integrations, advanced technologies, and cognitive processes. RPA can be used to mimic or emulate selected tasks allowing agencies to liberate their workforce from mundane, tedious, and boring tasks and move to what the Office of Personnel Management calls higher-valued work. These may include manipulating data, passing data to and from various applications, triggering responses, or executing transactions. The power of RPA is it securely acts as the workflow for other digital technologies. The UiPath fully automated enterprise is broadly deployed across 79 agencies and 11 states. Agencies are using RPA and other digital labor to bridge the gap between new technologies and legacy systems, to digitally transform government, supplement a shrinking workforce while increasing compliance, reducing errors, saving tax-dollars, and serving citizens better. This discussion will cover the history of RPA in the federal government, provide demonstrations, and look to the future of the fully automated enterprise as hyper-automation takes hold in the government’s automation era.
