#artificialintelligence

For some senior-level financial executives, the term Robotic Process Automation (RPA) produces visions of a utopian finance function. For others though, the mere thought of RPA brings on a major case of agita. According to a recent study by HfS Research and KPMG LLP, 55 percent of North American enterprises are looking at new opportunities available with RPA systems. Gartner predicts that by 2020, smart machines will be a top five investment priority for more than 30 percent of CIOs.
