Robotics is not just a hype. Organizations around the world are already using it and gain significant improvements."
What is robotic process automation (RPA)?
Many routine processes in organizations require human involvement. That’s often because legacy IT systems do not allow consistent automation without costly adaptions. Robotic Process Automation is a burgeoning technology that can replicate human actions in applications.
The result is faster execution of processes that follow clearly defined rules. Complex changes to your existing backend systems become obsolete. Instant functional automation allows employees to focus on activities creating real value in your organization.
Our team has full robotization capabilities
The network of RPA experts in BCG Platinion combines a strategic view with hands-on experience. In-depth industry know-how allows us to identify replicable use cases with the most significant impact. Expertise in connecting IT legacy to new digital platforms helps to navigate complex architectural environments. With this unique set of skills, we have supported our clients from various industries in their robotics initiatives.
Our toolkit for RPA@Scale
We bundled all insights and best-practices from our experience to facilitate an effective use and broad scale of Robotics Process Automation in your organization. You can learn more about some of our existing tools for RPA@scale below.
RPA Market Overview
Many RPA initiatives fail due to misleading software evaluation. We know the essential vendors and can assess their functional scope and technical feasibility without bias. Specific requirements are derived from the identified processes and current IT landscape to choose a solution tailored to your organization’s needs.
RPA Center of Excellence (CoE)
Driving RPA initiatives in your organization requires new capabilities and management structures. We provide role descriptions and models for the organizational setup of an RPA Center of Excellence in a centralized unit or dispersed across business lines. Standard procedures and ready-to-use templates enable a kick-start of your RPA expert team.
RPA Process Analysis
Not every process is suitable for robotization as-is, requiring a value-driven approach to prioritize use cases. We know the drivers to assess the technical feasibility and economic impact of processes along your organization’s value chain. That allows you to realize quick wins by first implementing scenarios with the highest potential.
From pilot implementation to large-scale agile delivery, there are many ways to execute RPA projects. We will steer you clear of common pitfalls through each step of your automation journey. Together with you and our colleagues from BCG Platinion Design & Engineering, we develop RPA solutions that fit the purpose.
Automation beyond RPA
Software robots are a great tool to interact with existing legacy IT systems using their standard interfaces without modification. But they are constrained to follow the rules strictly and cannot solve problems independently. That’s where artificial intelligence (AI) enters the picture with its ability to learn from experience. Process mining tools also allow us to gain a deep a deep understanding of complex processes to spot further optimization opportunities. We help you to combine multiple of these emerging technologies in a holistic platform to reach the next automation level.
