RPA, stands for Process Automation by Robotics, so it is possible to automate your tasks quickly and with cost reduction.
RPA bots can easily integrate with your broader automation initiatives, such as process and decision automation, or data capture initiatives, to expand the value of your automation program.
Do more with less!
RPA came to automate office processes, performing extremely manual and repetitive tasks that do not require intelligence. Like, the issuance of a 2nd copy of slips, execution of a process based on one or more queries in systems, changes in a system based on the action of another.
A robot performs an activity up to 10 times faster than a human. In addition to the speed of execution, the robot has a much higher productivity cycle, as it works 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, does not take holidays or take holidays.
The creation of these robots happens in agile cycles, that is, it is not necessary to carry out major coding jobs to put a robot to work. There are some tools that allow the creation of these robotic processes through an interactive development interface.
In addition, the robotic process reduces human error by up to 99%, as it does not type wrong, does not click wrong, does not access the wrong system – the robot will perform exactly what you have defined.
RPA, trend of use by companies
This technology is in the pipeline of almost all companies. According to Gartner, by the end of this year 2020, 90% of medium and large companies will have at least one process being carried out by a robot. Also according to Gartner, this automation will grow on average 41% per year until 2022.
Unlike other automation technologies, RPA has the function of facilitating the implementation process. Typically, your tools are intuitive and require little or no programming knowledge.
To implement this automation, it is necessary to look at the process, to make sure that it is well defined. For example, since the robot can work 24 × 7, will all systems involved in an RPA process also be available at the same time?
Business executives solving technology
With an emphasis on reducing costs, gaining efficiency and accessibility, the RPA has its adoption facilitated, since it has directly attracted the attention of managers and decision makers of companies.
Technology simplified and more powerful technologies to deliver business results fall in the minds of executives from different business areas.
This issue rekindles the discussion about how much IT professionals are willing to approach business demands. In addition to delivering quick solutions for them and failing to defend unnecessary contingencies in the adoption of new technologies.
Point of attention about RPA
RPA automations create long-term technical links. RPA allows to automate processes, even in applications that do not offer API (ApplicationProgramming Interface).
This is because it makes it possible to operate the screens (User Interface – UI) of the application, simulating the use by a human, since it is possible to operate the screens (User Interface – UI) of the application, simulating the use by a human, but it can be a long-term problem, because, if these applications undergo interface changes, this will affect the functioning of the robot. Whenever possible, choose to automate processes using the application’s native API.
