VA Academic RPA CoP Releases Paper to Accelerate RPA in VA Higher Education

The VA Academic Robotic Process Automation (RPA) Community of Practice (CoP) released its first primer designed to help universities on opening steps in the automation journey to bring greater effectiveness and efficiency to academic institutions.

The CoP co-authored the paper with Jessa Barnes, Advisor of the CoP and Practice Lead, Intelligent Automation for UDig, a technology consulting company with significant Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and Intelligent Automation (IA) practices.

“As universities are discovering the power of RPA and intelligent automation, we want to help educate the academic sector with what needs to be considered when embarking the journey,” said Dr. Rehr, “we want to reduce any uncertainty and risk as the automation moves forward.”

“UDig is excited to partner with the VA Academic RPA CoP to further software automation use, share knowledge, improve quality of education in the Commonwealth and help build VA’s reputation in technology, Ms. Barnes said,” and this primer should help in that mission.”
