On May 12th, Digital Mind and BlueGoldRPA organised their second conference this year,
Robots are here – are they friend or foe?

The event gathered a wide range of automation specialists, as well as experts and opinion leaders from legal, academic, business and religious fields.

In this article, we present all speaker recordings regarding robotics process automation (RPA) and Microsoft Power Platform Low-code features, real-life use-cases and benefits in the face of growing business challenges. You will find useful information regarding the wide range of features provided by the Power Platform products and how to efficiently extend existing program functionality, as well as rapidly produce new business applications.

Our potential is limitless, but our time is not.
