FAQs

What is RPA?

RPA is the fastest growing category of Enterprise Software (growing at 65% CAGR according to ForresterTM).”  

Hundreds of millions of knowledge workers are employed across the world and in every industry. RPA enables us to remove routine, mundane, and repetitive tasks via software robots. By assigning such repetitive activities to software robots we now can focus on more creative and valued work, accelerating our careers, our companies, and ultimately, society. RPA is distinct from prior process automation technologies due to its flexible scope and ease of implementation – enabling enterprises to automate tasks and integrate systems which are otherwise too complex, too costly, or too time-consuming to address.  

 

Why learn RPA?

“It’s the technology of the future.” 

Despite a rocky 2020, the global Robotic Process Automation (RPA) market is still on track to see double-digit growth from 2020 to 2021—19.5%, to $1.89 billion—according to arecent Gartner press release. According to the World Economic Forum, more than 54% of the workforce will require reskilling in the next 5 years! 

 “New technology adoption drives business growth, new job creation and augmentation of existing jobs, provided it can fully leverage the talents of a motivated and agile workforce who are equipped with futureproof skills to take advantage of new opportunities through continuous retraining and upskilling. Conversely, skills gaps—both among workers and among an organization’s senior leadership—may significantly hamper new technology adoption and therefore business growth.”  

Robotic Process Automation is one such technology that is dramatically redefining the future of work. Easy to deploy, non-intrusive, fast, and low-cost implementations have made RPA a priority across industries. 

Ninety percent of RPA developers say they expect the industry to expand over the next five years, echoing industry analyst sentiment and that demand for their skill sets will increase with it. 

Who can be an RPA developer? 

While technical skills are a plus, anyone who has an interest and motivation to learn this new technology can become an RPA developer. Moreover, many of the certified RPA developers around the globe are undergrads. 90+% have college degrees, the majority of which are in technical fields. Still, one out of five followed a business-focused course of study, and more than one in ten had degrees in "other" areas, indicating there's room in the industry for a broad set of skills and knowledge.
