Getting Started with RPA and Scaling RPA Programs: A Discussion with Jim Walker of UiPath

Helping federal agencies understand how they can integrate intelligence into their automation programs is a hot topic at Macro and the subject of a recent blog that I wrote on the subject.

But we also wanted to share expert insight from the very best in the industry. To this end, I sat down for a conversation with Jim Walker, public sector evangelist and CTO for Americas at UiPath, a leading enterprise automation company.

Jim has 32 years of leadership experience at NASA, MDA, DISA, and as an Army Major. Notably he led NASA’s “first in government” deployment of a robotic process automation (RPA) bot into production.

Who better to share lessons learned about how federal government agencies are realizing the tremendous value of intelligent automation and best practices for getting started?

Take a listen. We discuss:

  • How agencies scale their RPA programs and move from pilots to enterprise-scale deployments
  • Why governance is important – but not a prerequisite to success
  • The importance of engagement at all levels. After all, energy and excitement are drivers of momentum.
