Ro­bots will trans­form busi­ness

The Irish Times - Business - - TECHNOLOGY -

A re­cent study from Red­wood Soft­ware and Sa­pio Re­search found that, on av­er­age, IT man­agers think au­toma­tion will trans­form 59 per cent of busi­ness pro­cesses within the next five years, while 70 per cent think ro­bot­ics has be­come an im­por­tant part of the con­ver­sa­tion over the last year.

In­ter­est­ingly, at­ti­tudes to­wards ro­bot­ics were shaped by what side of the pond these IT man­agers were on: while 32 per cent of Amer­i­cans sur­veyed said that ro­bot­ics was a “top pri­or­ity” for them, only 19 per cent of Bri­tish IT man­agers agreed this was the case.

“There is no ques­tion that the US is cur­rently the world leader in ro­bot­ics au­toma­tion. Post-Brexit, UK companies may need to up their game in au­toma­tion in or­der to re­main com­pet­i­tive with their US, Euro­pean and global com­peti­tors,” said Den­nis Walsh, pres­i­dent of Amer­i­cas and Asia-Pa­cific, Red­wood Soft­ware.
