UiPath, Public Sector Automation Leader, Announces Formation of Public Sector Advisory Board to Meet Growing Customer Demand
One of the leading enterprise software companies, UiPath recently announced the formation of their first and new Public Sector Advisory Board. The officials from the company confirmed that the Public Sector Advisory Board will contain former economists, academia, and government technology officials.
UiPath is hopeful that the newly formed board will offer external perspectives on global economic trends, all facets of the government, and the latest opportunities in the field of automation to help public sector agencies to meet their goals.
The automation platform of UiPath has been already deployed in half of the states in the United States. In addition to that, UiPath has deployed the automation platform in 92 federal agencies and departments in the country. It is evident that the need for automation has been on the rise in recent years.
The federal government in the United States is planning to spend approximately 65 billion dollars on digital infrastructure in the next eight years. A recent survey conducted by NASCIO revealed that nearly 77 per cent of state CIOs revealed that their growing interest in automation software solutions is actually driven by the need to ensure better delivery of services to people who are living in the country.
The knowledge and insight of UiPath’s Public Sector Advisory Board regarding the unique challenges, legislative and policy priorities, and specific missions will help the company to decide on how they can approach the market segment. It will also help UiPath to come up with automation solutions, which can make the government effective and efficient.
