- What is Robotic Automation?
Robotic automation is a kind of automation where a machine performs human’s task in completing rules based jobs.
- What are benefits of Robotic Process Automation?
Benefits of RPA are:
- Faster: As bots are dealing with the execution here, a greater measure of work can be done in a relatively much shorter period. A faster delivery, coupled with accuracy.
- Consistency: It is a safe, non-invasive technology that doesn’t interfere with the inherent systems and provides impeccable consistency in performing the activities across the board, each and every time.
- Cost Effective: It has been projected that using robotics cuts operational costs, Robots can operate 24*7 and take no leave, when compared to humans.
- Increased Customer Satisfaction: Providing better quality of work with optimum accuracy and improved customer/client interaction leads to increased customer and client satisfaction.
- Accuracy & Quality: RPA offers better services to processes that have a high probability of human error, thereby increasing accuracy. Robots are reliable, consistent and do not whine when expected to work tirelessly.
- Improved Analytics: Having access to error free, perfect data from various sources would improve the quality of analytics in the process.
- What hardware infrastructure do I need to run Blue Prism’s Robotic Automation Platform?
Blue Prism has been exclusively designed for flexibility and to meet the robust IT standards for IT operational integrity, security and sup portability. The software can be organized either as a front office or back office process, running quite happily on a standard desktop in the front office or on any scale of systems for back office processing.
- Is Blue Prism’s Robotic Automation Platform secure and auditable?
Security and auditability are merged into the Blue Prism robotic automation platform at numerous levels. The runtime environment is completely separate to the process editing environment.
Approvals to design, create, edit and run processes and business objects are particular to each authorized user.
A full audit trail of changes to any process is kept, and comparisons of the before and after effect of changes are provided.
The log created at run-time for each process provides a detailed, time-stamped history of every action and decision taken within an automated process.
Clients tend to find that running a process with Blue Prism gives them a lot more control than a manual process, and from a submission point of view assures that processes are run consistently, in line with the process definition.
- How do I get started on delivering processes using Blue Prism?
Blue Prism acclaims a phased method to getting started as the Operational Agility framework is very mountable. It is typical to target the configuration of between 1 and 10 processes in the beginning with a rolling program of processes being introduced once the outline is established.
- How much does robotic automation cost?
An office robot is near about a 1/3rd the cost of universally sourced agents. The litheness and ease of disposition means that this comparison is easy to keep up and judge the nest method to a given tasks.
- What is the difference between thin client and thick client?
Thin client: It is any application that we cannot get the quality properties while spying using any RPA tools.
e.g. Any virtual environment
Thick client: It is any application that we get pretty handful of attribute features using RPA tools
e.g. calculator, Internet explorer
- What are the Popular RPA Tools?
Popular RPA Tools to automate the Business Processes:
- Blue Prism: It is a trading name of the Blue Prism Group, a UK multinational software corporation, the term Robotic Process Automation was invented by Blue Prism, that itself proves they are the innovators in RPA Software Development.
- Automation Anywhere: Automation anywhere is another top RPA vendors providing strong and User- friendly RPA tools to automate tasks of any complexity.
- UiPath: UiPath is a Windows desktop Robotic Process Automation (RPA) Software is used for automation for various web, desktop, citrix, etc. based applications.
Other Popular tools are Pega, Nice, Workfusion, etc…
- What are the important Phases of RPA Life Cycle?
Phases of RPA Life Cycle:
- Analysis: The first phase in RPA begins with analysis. Business team and RPA Architect work together to understand a business process for RPA development.
- Bot Development: RPA developer (Team) starts working on the requirement in their environment possibly a distinct development environment.
- Testing: Some companies conduct Testing by Separate Testing Team, while some have a dedicated testing team which performs a dedicated QA like normal SDLC flow. Best Practice is to have a dedicated testing team which performs QA of developed bot.
- Deployment and Maintenance: After the Development and Testing phases, a bot is ready for distribution and enters maintenance phase.
- What are Limitations of Robotic Process Automation?
Limitations of RPA are:
- RPA surely improves company efficiency by powering repetitive human effort, but there are limitations to the types of work that it can be applied to – especially ones that require judgment.
- RPA is not a cognitive computing solution. It cannot learn from experience and therefore has a ‘shelf life’.
- Implementing RPA to a broken and incompetent process will not fix it. RPA is not a Business Process Management solution and does not bring an end-to-end process view.
- Enterprises need to be aware of various inputs coming from multiple sources.
- It cannot read any data that is non-electronic with unstructured inputs.
