Robots marching on

What started out as an emerging domain of software ‘robots’ performing repetitive tasks to augment or replace human employees is rapidly turning into the next wave of the industrial revolution.

 

COVID-19 has induced a rapid acceleration of remote working and the adoption of digital transformation and automation technologies across all industry verticals. RPA is expected to play a major role in delivering operational efficiencies for these enterprises, driving significant growth across the sector.

Investec’s Technology team sees the massive opportunities open to RPA vendors across both software and services, and the investors backing them. This presentation aims to provide an update on the current financing and M&A environment of the resilient RPA market.
