Lately I have been delving into the different business models for Robotic Process Automation, or as it’s called in short: RPA. How are these RPA business models implemented, how are suitable processes identified and how are the services charged? Most important, why do RPA projects fail most of the time, although they initially seemed to be with high potential. In this blog I will elaborate on which processes are suited for current state RPA and explain how I think they should be implemented. In closing I will dive into the remuneration of the RPA provider.
Technology is taking every business on a life-changing grand tour. Customers become more demanding every day. Due to increasing knowledge on how technology can unleash possibilities they force businesses to rethink their product or service offering.

How can marketing automation contribute to that and get internal and external stakeholders to adopt new solutions?
Thorough planning versus flexibility. Can these business drivers join forces? Agile appears to be winning the battle of application development. The adoption of this method has been increasing vigorously this last decade. Companies are even using similar methods to carry out other – not tech related – projects. So, flexibility it is?
Dealing with change and continuous improvement requires a revolving innovation cycle. How you approach the rise of innovation is crucial to the success and even the survival probability of a business. Customers lay down the law when it comes to products and services; a dominant factor that should weigh with your innovation processes. In what setup could you best unlock innovation?
Is IoT a ‘wanna-have’ or a must-have? More and more devices are connected to the Internet. Within a household often several devices have a connection: smartphone, tablet, TV, computers and thermostats for instance. This technology phenomenon is called the Internet of Things (IoT). Every day processing becomes more intelligent and every day communication becomes more informative than ever. On the one hand there are devices that can detect better, communicate better and be used for useful applications. On the other hand, small sensors can be added to virtually any object. These developments combined provide real time data that can be turned into useful information in ways we have never imagined before. Is your organisation ready?
