Experts today stressed the need for embracing "Intelligent Automation" to enable business growth at an exponential rate, combating the Covid-19 pandemic in Bangladesh.
They made the observations at an international webinar on 'Transforming Finance & Accounting with Robotic Process Automation' organised by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Bangladesh (ICAB).
In a growing market like Bangladesh, it is very crucial for the enterprises to embrace intelligent automation, they said.
They also said that Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and Process Mining came to the fore during the pandemic as companies took steps to digitally transform.
As chief guest, ICT State Minister Zunaid Ahmed Palak said RPA is employing smart software robots (bots) that identify and copycat human interactions with core legacy systems, along with web and other desktop applications to execute processes.
RPA robots are capable of mimicking many–if not all–human user actions which are rule-based.
They log into applications, move files and folders, copy and paste data, fill in forms, extract structured and semi-structured data from documents, scrape browsers, and more, ICAB said in a press release.
