Who Needs IT Anyway?

When it comes to Robotic Process Automation or RPA, the general school of thought is that business or process owners should take ownership. In addition, RPA tools are frequently being marketed as “programming-lite”. That is, even non-IT savvy business users are able to use the tools to configure the bots themselves.
