What kinds of processes can be automated?

It is technically possible to automate almost any process that is performed on a computer. However, the best value comes from automating processes that:

✓ Have high volumes;

✓ Are time-consuming;

✓ Are standard and rule-based;

✓ Do not require cognitive functionalities;

✓ Generate value.

In addition to that we also often like to add simplicity. When a process is simple, it is easier (and cheaper) to automate, support and, if needed, adjust.
