Robotic Process Automation for Business

Sometime over the past couple of years, what used to be called Business Process Automation (BPA has morphed into Robotic Process Automation (RPA).  So, just what's the difference between the two?

BPA includes technologies such as imaging (scanning applications that help convert paper documents into digital files) and workflow (automatically routing documents from one step to another in a business process).  Sometimes BPA includes integration of tasks between applications, requiring the assistance of a programmer.  

The global market for RPA technologies will reach $8.75 billion by 2024.
