What makes a good automation candidate?
The first word that comes to mind is “boring”.
Those processes repeated over and over again to the same exact steps that need minimal cognitive effort.
How much of modern human “work” is something like this: get email, check something, click something, open another thing, copy/paste, copy/paste, check a checkbox, copy/paste, save, close, send an email.
Then repeat – over and over.
A digital worker can do boring work faster, better, for 24 hours a day for less than $300 a month.
Let bots do the boring, so we can do the human stuff.
