Microsoft + Softmotive for low-code RPA solutions
Softmotive, a global provider of a robotic process automation(RPA) technology, was acquired by Microsoft in May 2020. By pairing the desktop automation capabilities of Softmotive with the Power Automate platform, automation adopters can jump-start their initiatives to streamline their repetitive processes. Here’s how it works:
Through RPA, automation triggers are enabled in the platform through a capability called UI Flows. Through UI Flows, UI-based automation capabilities are conjoined with the Power Automate platform (both in the cloud and on premise) to help users streamline repetitive, rule-based tasks within their processes. Step by step actions, such as mouse clicks, data entry and keyboard use, can be further processed into intelligent data through platform recording for further use.
