Conference details

The future is here. Robotic process automation is reshaping the accounting and finance profession. 40% of transactional accounting work is expected to be automated by 2020 (Financial Management) and predicted to touch 230 million knowledge workers, 9% of the global workforce, according to McKinsey Research. Driven by the need to stay competitive with decreased costs and increased efficiency, RPA is quickly making a significant impact on the profession. Companies no longer think about ‘if’ but “when” to implement RPA.

This certificate program focuses on robotic process automation benefits and how the use of software robots can enable your business or clients to become more competitive and agile.

You will gain an understanding of the risks, opportunities and organizational impact of automation while learning the decision criteria and key considerations needed to build a business case and run a successful proof-of-concept. You will also explore the steps and governance needed to implement or advise clients on how to implement RPA successfully.
