Since 2015, Robotic Process Automation (RPA), the software robot, imitate human behaviors to take complicated tasks is more and more popular in various industry. The current references are mainly concepts the case studiess that focused on the dedicated enterprise, however, less of generalization. For the goal of stepping out and going further of find the genera key factors about RPA-Business alignment, researchers will use multi-valued qualitative comparative (mvQCA) method and IT-Business alignment theory. The general factors of IT-Business alignment can also affect RPA-Business. Second, there are two ways to accelerate the RPA-business alignment and six ways to slow down RPA-business alignment from the calculation results. The positive and negative have different configurations. With this research result, other mvQCA requirements could take the most of the positive factors of RPA-Business alignment. Meanwhile, the negative factors can avoid in advance. The essence of RPA is information technology.

Robotic process automation (RPA) is a new breed of software robots designed to automate services through processing structured data by following rules. The research examines how RPA is being deployed at Royal DSM, the Dutch multinational company, in its global financial shared services organization. Here, like many other companies, DSM adopted RPA as the next transformation lever beyond centralization, standardization, and relocation to a lower cost region. DSM’s first phase of automation “robot...

The case presents a series of dilemmas facing senior executives thinking through the potential application of robotic process automation (RPA) into a human resource (HR) function and global business service (GBS) operations. The executives are pointed to successful RPA implementation by business process service provider Xchanging, operating in the back office of the London insurance market. The teaching case focuses on what can be learned from that experience, and how their own RPA use may diffe...

This paper explores the implications of applying automation, a technological force in which computer systems can fulfill human tasks, into the asset management industry. The investigation explores a number of significant topics in which managers should begin contemplating, including workforce origination post automation, the primary skills necessary to facilitate augmentation, and how robo advisors could challenge an organization’s value proposition. The investigation was centered on Jupiter Ass...

Global trends are shaped through disruptive innovation and the new technology of Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) represents a big part of it. The aim of the research paper is to assess the impact of A.I. on global trends, by offering a macro-perspective upon the industry environment, economy and employment and a micro-perspective upon finance, marketing and management. The practical approach is conducted through qualitative methods of research, based on purposive sampling. The effects of A.I. in ...

Robotic process automation (RPA) emerges as a new technology which is focused on automation of repetitive, routine, rule-based human tasks, aiming to bring benefits to the organizations that decide to implement such software solution. Since RPA is a relatively new technology available on the market, the scientific literature on the topic is still scarce. Therefore, this paper aims to investigate how academic community defines RPA and to which extent has it been investigated in the literature in ...
