RPA is a technology in which bots (robots) are used to do the manual work in companies by:
Configuring the existing software (existing systems are not disturbed)
capturing & interpreting application processes
manipulating the data
creating communication channels with other systems.
Best part is the Operating System(OS) based on same User Interface as for the humans – keyboard & mouse controls are used to take actions & execute automation.
Why RPA Is Needed?
Though most of the process in the IT industry is matured, there are still many applications that do not talk to each other. A lot of repetitive tasks are manually performed for which millions of dollars spent by customers. RPA has the ability to automate most of these repitative tasks that are manually performed by Human in BPO today. RPA has powerful integrations and automation abilities that can mimic human interactions with web applications , desktop application, Mainframe Terminals. Eliminating Software Engineers to perform repitative tasks helps them to shift their time and energy on important capabality model, artificial intelligence, logical reasoning and out of the box thinking are required.
