I was doing some research on "enterprise security architect & Robotic-Process-Automation", and collected some materials, which I am sharing here. Some materials are old but good to read.
As the future will be on Cloud, IAM(identity access Management) and of RPA (Robotic Process Automation), Security will be one of the growing field in industry if companies will adopt these process. No more existing business/office world (big big buildings and all are working from there) will be there by adopting RPA and moving to Cloud&IAM. Companies can save a huge amount of money which they used to invest on infrastructure, and can allow the employees to work from any-ware. Some points from the shared documents are mentioned here (I have not yet completely read all books) about RPA.
RPA offers $2 trillion in savings: PwC
Consulting firm PwC believes that Automation technologies like Robotic Process Automation (RPA).could have an effect on service businesses that would be as dramatic as the effect that conventional robots have had on manufacturing.
It estimates over 45% of workplace activities can be automated providing a potential $2 trillion in savings across the globe. Put simply, RPA is a set of concepts and technologies designed to intelligently automate repetitive business, industrial, and other tasks. RPA has little to do with what we commonly understand as “robots” in the conventional sense of the word. Rather,
RPA is defined by algorithms that are built to enhance return on investment (ROI), boost execution speed, and improve the quality of business results.
A report on sales order solutions for the supply chain from Gartner and Esker shows a range of positive results from document processing automation, including:
• 55 percent lower order processing costs
• 99.6 percent order entry accuracy rate
• 60 percent reduction of labour overhead in order entry
• 40 percent increase in electronic throughput rate
Why use RPA?
The primary driver for the implementation of many RPA systems is the significant cost savings opportunities they provide typically somewhere between one-third and one-fifth of the cost of a full-time equivalent (FTE) member of personnel, depending on the location of that individual. There are, however, a number of other potential benefits:
• improved quality - through the elimination of human errors and delays;
• better productivity - short return on investment timeframe – RPA deployments can be done over short timescales with minimal configuration or integration needed;
• a happier, more motivated workforce - a robotic workforce enables redeployment of personnel to focus on higher value and more complex tasks;
• enhanced resilience and scalability - digital labour doesn’t take holidays or succumb to illness, will carry out the prescribed functions in a consistent manner, and can be scaled up or down to meet changes in demand;
• enhanced collection of transactional data; and
• improved compliance and regulatory risk - achieved through all of the above combined with better management information and an auditable transaction trail.
More generally, deploying RPA allows an organisation to re-examine its operational model. For example, processes which were previously offshored can be repatriated and automated.
Large, inflexible outsourcing agreements, which are often heavily dependent on FTE pricing models, can be renegotiated and/or broken up.
FTEs who previously performed the affected activities may be redeployed to more valuable roles, although in some circumstances their positions in the organisation may become redundant.
30%–40% of existing business process services are likely to be impacted by RPA
Cost reduction of 35%–65% for onshore operations and 10%–30% for offshore operations
RPA is estimated to lead to 30%–35% reduction in entry-level roles and increase mid-level roles
Estimated that 85% of a typical firm’s 900+ processes can be automated; 110m to 140m FTE capacity could be released by 2025
