The RPA Initiative at George Mason University has welcomed UDig into the partnership. The RPA Initiative, one of the few established academic courses of study at major universities worldwide, is part of George Mason’s Center for Business Civic Engagement where students examine how RPA has and can continue to make government more effective.
UDig, a provider of open-source graphic information system (GIS) software, has a significant RPA and intelligent automation practice and will add valuable insight for students studying automation technologies, according to Dr. David K. Rehr, director at the Center for Business Civic Engagement and Co-Founder of the RPA Initiative.
“UDig is the latest supporter of the premiere academic RPA Initiative in the country, and we are honored and delighted to be working with them,” said Dr. David K. Rehr, Director at the Center for Business Civic Engagement and Co-Founder of the Initiative. He added, “UDig has an established record of accomplishment in both the private and public sectors and will bring real thought leadership and practical experience to our efforts.”
While RPA and other process automation technologies don’t enjoy an established educational career path, strides are being made at select colleges and universities around the world. The RPA Initiative was established to research, educate, and communicate how the adoption of automation technology can improve productivity, operations, and service delivery of public sector organizations.
