New White Paper: From Robotic Process Automation to Intelligent Process Automation: The Evolutionary Journey

As robotic process automation (RPA) gains a foothold in industries across the globe, business leaders are learning about opportunities to take process automation even further with artificial intelligence and cognitive automation, a.k.a., intelligent process automation or IPA. Our latest white paper takes a look at the journey from RPA to IPA and discusses some critical considerations for how to roll out an integration plan.

Here’s what you’ll find inside:

An Intro: The Difference Between RPA and IPA

Learn where the ultimate value lies in both kinds of technologies and exactly what the differences are between them. Discover what kinds of processes are primed for which, get real world IPA and RPA use cases, and understand how they function in context of each other.

Complementary not Competitive

It’s natural to ask “Which is right for me?” But in this case, it’s not a matter of choosing one or the other, because RPA and IPA are good for different things. Learn how the technologies can work in tandem when properly integrated.

Elevating Beyond Basic Computing

This is where IPA really shines. Learn how to go beyond the limitations of rules-based functionality, leveraging machine learning and other AI to make process automation truly transformational.

Added Benefits of Course Correction

IPA also features the flexibility to make changes as you go along with some so-called self-enhancing features of its own, making it a particularly powerful implementation. Learn how this adaptability can bring about big change in your organization.

The Human Element

Any technology is only as good as its support for people. In this section, we dig into Professor Leslie Wilcocks’s famed adage, “Robots take the robot out of the human,” discussing how the right technology eliminates the mundane, robotic nature of work and helps elevate our sense of purpose.

The Journey Ahead

The white paper concludes with some final recommendations on key considerations for your IPA journey, including outlining an adaptive strategy, creating a centralized approach and the factors you’ll want to consider for your company culture.


If you are ready to take your RPA initiatives to the next level, or even if you’ve already started with some IPA implementation but want to dig deeper, this white paper is an excellent place to start. Download your free copy today: From RPA to IPA: The Evolutionary Journey.
