Companies put investment into driving scale.
Organizations are getting more ambitious with their IA investment plans. The survey conducted for the report, Easing the pressure points: The state of intelligent automation, found that more than half have invested in excess of US$10 million in IA while more than one-third have already allocated US$50 million or more. These funding levels suggest this field is moving beyond pilots and into more scaled initiatives. These larger investment amounts that typically include cloud and ancillary infrastructure expenses are actually probably understated. The full costs of an internal transition (including human resource issues) may not be taken entirely into account when viewed from a tech-centric only perspective.
