The scope and area of Big Data have gained significant momentum from the tandem of academics and business parlance over the last couple of decades. It assists organizations in gaining business insights, fostering a competitive edge, and transforming whole business processes (Dahiya et al., 2021; Shah, 2022; Talwar et al., 2021; Wamba & Mishra, 2017). According to McKinsey (2011), Big Data would be a unique source of improving the productivity, competitiveness, and innovation of the business organization. Similarly, McAfee et al. (2012) argued that Big Data can enhance the entire decision-making function of a firm. According to Brown et al.

1.  Introduction

Today’s businesses are undergoing a massive transition from old, outdat- ed technology to new ones. The new ones are very rapidly forming, and businesses that are going to be successful must adapt to this shift. Robotic Process Automation (RPA) uses robotic technology to automate various repetitive tasks in business. RPA is gaining popularity due to its ability to decrease costs, streamline processes, and improve customer experiences. Another benefit of RPA software is that it may be implemented without the need for business units to learn new tools or seek information technology (IT) help, as well as without modifying the underlying IT architecture of a company. As the popularity of RPA increases, enterprises will need to integrate RPA process automation into their IT platforms. Although RPA automatics can accelerate a previously managed business process substan- tially, it may be unacceptable if applications or processes change.
