"When we launched our first AI Innovation Conference in 2014, we laid the groundwork for understanding what RPA is, and whether it really is different from traditional automation and what's already out there," said Raheem Hasan, President and Co-Founder, IRPA. "Attendees came skeptical and left convinced this was going to be the next wave of disruption and innovation. Our 2015 conferences, which were standing room only, were all about readiness. Many if not most service providers and advisors now know RPA is real and a required discipline to be relevant in the rapid shift from labor arbitrage to digital labor. Our 2016 conferences are all about reality and the demystification of automation - RPA, Cognitive Computing and Artificial Intelligence.

"The AI Innovation Conference series has been ahead of the curve in terms of envisioning the significance of RPA and identifying the key opportunities and challenges facing both buyers and sellers," said Chip Wagner, CEO of Alsbridge, co-chair of the 2014 and 2015 conferences. "By bringing together industry leaders, visionaries and real-world practitioners, the programs have generated excitement regarding the possibilities of these game-changing technologies, without resorting to hype and hyperbole. Through the events, we've established relationships and gained insights that continue to yield benefits."

In addition to the Automation Innovation Conferences, IRPA is teaming up with its sister organization, the Outsourcing Institute, to host the Outsourcing, Automation, Innovation Seminar Series (OAISS) this Spring, a new regional roadshow and roundtable series focused on the intersection of outsourcing, innovation & automation.

OAISS event details:

  • March 17 in Dallas
  • April 12 in NYC
  • April 27 in London, UK
  • June in Chicago

IRPA continues to be front and center in the RPA ecosystem – bringing together buyers, consultants and providers, to assess the true merits of automation software with an objective eye and an independent voice.
