What is Robotic Process Automation?

There are three words in RPA: “Robotic,” “Process,” and “Automation”, which refer to Automation testing processes run by Robots or bots. In broader terms, Robotic in the process will mimic the action of the users to enter data, follow a series of repetitive cases by observing and adapting right according to the environment and input provided by the users. It is an intelligent domain that requires vast programming knowledge and consistency.

Have to disagree.

Over a decade ago I was working in this field and still am. In fact a client that has such in their production line just came back for a small update.

I think you must be very new to the field or being sold a bill of goods you don't need.

Disscussion on What is Robotics Process Automation

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) technology is emerging as a key enabler in the space of digital transformation. Some of it’s key advantages include minimal investment requirement, rapid timelines and quick return on investment (Within weeks).
A few more business benefits of a RPA program:
- It is easy to implement, integrate and maintain. There are no highly skilled resources required.
- It seamlessly integrates with existing legacy systems and utilizes its capability to deliver operational agility.
- It enables higher accuracy and productivity.
- Human workforce can focus on more important tasks as bots take up the mundane, repetitive tasks. Thus, employees can perform better and deliver more value.
- It also enables enhanced compliance in the ever-increasing regulatory environment.
- Software bots perform pre-defined steps and these automated transactions are recorded. It prevents manual errors and provides full transparency to auditors.
- RPA empowers businesses to innovate faster enabling speed to market.
- The cost of development is significantly low.

Robotic Process Automation

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is an intelligent software technology that automates virtually any business activity. It is very help to the day-to-day life.RPA is designed to use a software robot to interact with an existing application (e.g. CRM, ERP) or website in the same way as a person who works within those systems to completes a specific task.RPA technology can help him to IT software industries also.

Discussion about robotic process automation

I work in the field at a company called CiGen and what I usually tell clients is that RPA is a useful tool for maximally efficient use of their company’s available resources, because “tool” covers both software and services. I think it's important that people understand that RPA emulates the actions of a person - this is, in fact, why it is called robotic. Software robots mirror human employees’ actions such as filling in spreadsheets, copying and pasting data in required fields, merging data, etc. Which cancels the risk of error and speeds up the process. It does not mean that software robots can do everything that humans do, or that they will take over all of our jobs. I still encounter a lot of misconceptions on the subject.

RE:

Robotic Process Automation enables business professionals to easily configure software robots to automate repetitive, routine work between multiple systems. ... While existing capabilities of screen-scraping and macros software technology may come to mind, RPA is an evolution beyond these solutions
