Robotic Processing Automation (RPA)

Robotic Process Automation within your Organization

Whether you are into BPM on a full-time basis or a general technologist, it is hard to not be seriously considering RPA or RDA (Robotic Desktop Automation) in the mix of any business solution you are working on lately. For Pegasystems specialist, you may have been introduced to RPA by their fairly recent acquisition of OpenSpan (now Pega Robotics). Pegasystems is rapidly assimilating the RPA into their BPM platform (PRPC 7.4).  Although, integration with BPM is a good feature, in the industry RPA is platform agnostic and considered a platform in and of itself. 

I have seen some organizations establish entire reporting units dedicated to RPA, even with a well-established BPM practice already in place. In discussions with technology leads, some seem to have a hard time enunciating how RPA fits into the overall architecture, this will be mitigated once there are enough RPA implementations and associated case studies disseminated.  

Automating Daily Tasks With Robotic Process Automation (RPA)

Join Gregg Rock, Clay Richardson and Cornelius Pone as they provide you an overview of where and when you can implement Robotic Process Automation (RPA) as well as demonstrate an actual bot automating an arduous task.

RPA is something you should consider if you are wanting to reduce risk, redundancy and errors and increase productivity and compliance by automating daily tasks such as the following:

  • Extract and enter form data
  • Log into multiple systems
  • Download reports
  • Change passwords

What is RPA
Robotic process automation (RPA) is the application of technology that automates workflows of administrative tasks and processes, leveraging artificial intelligence and machine learning to complete and manage more complex work and tasks. 

Find out how to build your own bots at the end of the webcast.

Robotics is a GO, now what?

 The Future Is Now

Many companies are making the decision to step forward and implement various forms of Digital Process Automation, namely some version of Robotics Process Automation (RPA). There is a spectrum of Automation (Exhibit 1), from simple tasks that “bots” can easily handle to Artificial Intelligence. RPA is the next generation of process automation, moving from scripts and macros, to automating repetitive activities. Companies are choosing where to jump in and how to stand up to the new business capability.

Robotic Business Process Automation is Here

Robotic Business Process Automation is all the rage right now. It is the new cost reduction initiative that many executives are eager to implement. There are numerous conferences focused on Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and the evolution to Cognitive Processing or Machine Learning (AI). There are many emerging companies that show great promise and businesses are strongly considering adopting these tools. The following from Accenture, is a succinct depiction of the spectrum of Robotics, with RPA being the simpler end of the spectrum.

What to Look for in 2017?

According to a recent article in Forbes, there’s a high level of consistency on macro technology trend predictions for 2017 by organizations such as Gartner, Forrester, Deloitte, Accenture, and McKinsey. That’s not surprising as “digital transformation” is pretty much the leading buzzword in today’s corporate lexicon and executives scramble to get up to speed on related concepts such as social, mobile, cloud, artificial intelligence, machine learning, cognitive computing, analytics, and big data.

Business Process Automation RFI

Business process management (BPM) needs can vary widely, from top-down business transformation initiatives to smart process applications to enterprise resource planning, marketing, social and more. With this breadth and depth of reach, BPM - and BPA, business process automation - are more than a couple of buzzwords, they are absolutely mission critical.

To get the most out of a BPM or BPA solution, organizations need to select platforms that are quick to deploy, agile once in service and show measurable value over time.

There are plenty of offerings on the market today, but, how do you compare them when they offer such varying capabilities?

We've created a resource to help you efficiently compare BPM and BPA solutions by identifying the most important considerations.
