Conversely, TD automation falls into the cognitive automation category. It is solving a more complex problem, that supports key decision making by exploring a targeted data set. It requires machine learning and humans working together. At first glance, this may seem impossible.
Quite the contrary. Not only is TD automation possible, it is currently being done. And even though it has a slightly higher upfront cost in terms of setting up the automation, the payoffs are much greater because of the first two drivers discussed - scale and causality.
As a result, you can expect to see TD automation grow in prominence and importance in the very near future, just as IR automation has.
