What is RPA? Robotic Process Automation is a form of technology, governed by specific inputs, that serves the purpose of automating various forms of business processes. Through RPA, an organization can configure a “robot” to harness and manipulate data, trigger desired responses and communicate the process with other configured robots. All for the sole purpose of achieving a specific business functionality that was previously controlled by humans.
So, who needs RPA? Contrary to popular belief, IT driven organizations are not the only ones achieving desired results through this form of automation. RPA can be an integral aspect of any organization wishing to optimize their standard business processes. This can be finance organizations, sales driven businesses, or tangible product driven companies.
What do the subject matter experts have to say about this breakthrough in technology? How do you get started in RPA, and how do you implement it into your business practice? Let’s begin with a synopsis on a recent publishing from Information/Age, where author Michael Baxter explores the realm of RPA in the article, RPA Predictions for 2019, from UiPath.
