UiPath with Boris Krumrey

Robotic process automation or RPA refers to software robots constructed to automate some business process.  Perhaps the most ubiquitous example is adding filters to your email inbox.  I’ve worked with a lot of salespeople that configure complex email follow-up campaigns when inbound emails come in, but even that’s a fairly basic example compared to what’s becoming possible.

UiPath is an automation platform.  They offer a suite of solutions that empower developers and non-developers to construct effective software robots that can measurably improve business efficiency.  In this interview, I speak with Boris Krumrey, Global VP Automation Innovations at UiPath.  We overview the platform and discuss the current and future state of RPA.
