MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 12, 2020--
Tricentis, the leader in enterprise automation, today released a new RPA research study conducted by Forrester Consulting and commissioned by Tricentis: Barriers and Best Practices for Scaling RPA. To explore what Robotic Process Automation (RPA) programs really look like on the ground and identify what challenges firms face related to scaling those programs, Forrester surveyed enterprise decision makers with existing RPA programs. Forrester found that centralized automation, effective resiliency, and low-maintenance bots are critical elements for RPA success.
“RPA has enabled organizations to reimagine how people and applications can work together, delivering a fast ROI,” commented Wayne Ariola, General Manager of Tricentis RPA. “However, numerous research studies have all shown that scaling an RPA initiative is more difficult and costly than expected.

The primary purpose of this Forrester research is to better understand these barriers to scale and help organizations avoid dangerous missteps in their RPA journey.”
