The real world and its digital twin are collaborating to bring forth something called “mass customisation”, a new manufacturing culture which, as the term suggests, will be the basis for the most diverse ecosystem of engineered products ever seen.

If business was easy, everyone would be doing it. Running a business is a complex and sometimes difficult thing to do.
The more experience one has, the more they can make it look easy. But no matter how experienced you are, and how much you can “routinise” your workload by yourself, a robot and software could probably do those things better.
That might sound disheartening for some, but for others, it provides an opportunity to become more productive, and in ways that are more creative and rewarding.

In general, the decision-making process regarding enterprise software has been difficult – and made more so by the inflated promises of slick marketing. But business process automation has proven difficult in particular, and for three particular reasons.
The first is that providers over-sold the capabilities of the first generation of process automation solutions. Second, it’s problematic to do an apples-to-apples comparison of automation products because no two are exactly alike.
Make your robot perform like a rock star: achieving the remaining 15 per cent. An article by the head of transformation at Genfour, Rita Brunk, who has been involved in hundreds of robotic process implementations
I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve seen back-office robotics implementations that are functioning about 85 per cent as well as they should be.
Companies often get robotic process automation running perfectly in say, 7 of 9 sub-processes, but when it comes to that remaining 15 per cent, many companies are in the dark as to how to get the robot to perform like a real rock star.
Advisory company Alsbridge predicted that deploying smart robots to improve the efficiency of claims processing could generate billion-dollar savings for the healthcare industry.
“Robotic process automation (RPA) offers a cost-effective strategy to significantly increase the rate of healthcare claims automation and drive cost savings,” said Rod Dunlap, a director in Alsbridge’s RPA practice.

Technological change is surging at unprecedented new speeds, and Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are at the forefront of this development.
Blue Prism, a developer of enterprise robotic process automation (RPA) software, is to debut on the London Stock Exchange’s AIM market, making it the first developer of software robots to trade on public markets, according to the company.
Blue Prism says it grew 35 per cent last year and has deployments with more than 74 customers, including a number of the world’s largest banks, insurers, utilities, healthcare, telecommunications, service providers and other regulated industries.
The initial public offering (IPO) will allow Blue Prism to support its global growth plans and enhance its profile within the RPA marketplace, the company said.
Xerox has launched a global reseller agreement with Top Image Systems that the companies say will give customers end-to-end robotic process automation solutions for industry-specific, content-driven procedures.
Content processing solutions from TIS will be integrated into Xerox’s workflow automation suite, which helps simplify end-to-end processes for a range of industries including financial services, healthcare and government.
