Bots in the back office: the coming wave of digital workers

Rising global labour costs are causing BPO to become unsustainable at the same time as technologies are advancing and converging in such a way that they can not only augment work, but replace workers.

More and more companies are gaining traction with cognitive and automation platforms - machines with rapidly advancing capabilities for understanding, learning, communicating, and problem-solving. Robotic process automation (RPA) - this convergence of low-cost, easy-to-implement process automation, coupled with machine learning, data analytics, and cognitive innovations - is creating a new class of digital labour.
