Robots will transform business
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.
