Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is a software technology that facilitates the construction, deployment, and management of software robots that simulate human behaviour in interaction with digital systems and software. Just like humans, software bots can do things like understand what’s on the screen, make the correct keystrokes, navigate the system, recognize and extract data, and perform various defined actions.
RPA is a business process automation technology that uses virtual software robots (also known as digital robots or bots) to perform time-consuming manual tasks or tasks.
A software robot is a computer program designed to perform a specific action. Robots are designed to perform simple or complex activities, automating processes involving repetitive tasks. More sophisticated versions of software robots simulate or interact with humans. Examples include virtual assistants such as Amazon’s Alexa, Microsoft’s Cortana, and Apple’s Siri.
What does RPA do?
Robotic process automation technology manages a variety of activities, including:
• Manual and repetitive tasks: interact with data from various sources such as Microsoft Excel, supplier portals and other sources
• Bulk Tasks: Process steps that need to be repeated, such as data migration and approval workflows
• Multiple system tasks: access to different applications such as web applications, PR solutions, third-party software, etc.
RPA adoption is growing at a double-digit rate. As the fastest growing segment of the global enterprise software market.
