Headlines began blaring in 2022 about layoffs in the tech sector. According to layoffs.fyi, so far in 2023 more than 200,000 tech workers have succumbed to the whims of organizations retrenching and looking for opportunities to cut costs. For the automation space, however, it’s an opportunity. Because it streamlines workflows, eliminates manual tasks, and minimizes human error, intelligent automation software can lead directly to cost savings for organizations navigating an economic downturn.
As a relatively new technology, however, lack of automation expertise can be a barrier to businesses that want to take advantage of it. As a result, an ecosystem of intelligent automation service providers and consultants offering expertise and implementation assistance has sprung up and is rapidly expanding.
