I'm new to Finance Transformation projects and currently working on an assignment where we recommend bunch of RPAs for a client who use SAP On-prem. Isn't it better for companies to move to the Cloud instead of dealing with bunch of temporary RPA solutions? Why do companies go with RPA instead of Cloud migration? Appreciate your thoughts on this :)

RPA is not a substitute for cloud vs on prem....you sure you were told the scope of the project?

RPA has the opportunity for nearly immediate ROI with some use cases. It has its fit, but not a substitute for broken processes. Likely the company doesn’t have the budget or appetitive for a $10M+ ERP transformation and a few quick hits with $50k bots might give immediate wins.

Cloud is compute power. RPA is process execution. Cloud will help you scale your compute up and down. So that as you can rightsize your "hardware" as you get more data, or sell parts of your business. The hardware here is owned by someone else and leased in parts as "cloud." Think: my report can open faster, or a calc can complete faster. RPA is a series of steps run in succession by a machine. It can be front end automation (like automation anywhere or blue prism), or back end automation through code. RPA done well will take heavy lift repetitive effort on for the client by executing those steps. Think: parts (or all) of my process are run by machine steps

I have no clue what any of those mean as far as credits who gets what credit by being placed in those fields. I don't want to short myself or my colleagues as I do more..

Anyone in tech - how do you handle junior Dev dudes who are simultaneously green, and too arrogant to admit they don't know what they're doing / won't admit a woman might know more than them. Had a Dev on my team drop the ball significantly on a client deliverable, but keeps insisting he understands and wastes hours trying to figure out stuff on his own bc he refuses to allow me to explain it to him. If I had the time, I'd just take over and do it myself at this point, but I don't.

How would u approach a written case with very few data? I’ve received a written case few days in advance for my interview and almost no data and they are asking to propose strategy for my client. I am struggling to understand if I should proceed with deductions and assumption (with no data validation) or structuring it as case but I have no answers to all the question that come out normally when structuring a case. Also, they say I should present a deliverable in a play role environment…
