Perhaps more than any other sector, the technology industry suffers from jargon overload, with vendors and consultants constantly hyping solutions and strategies with phrasings meant to capture buzz.

A recent survey by IDG Research found that many IT organizations are showing no interest in RPA, even as the appetite for business process management and workflow automation is growing.
