What is Robotic Process Automation (RPA)
RPA enables companies to easily automate repetitive, redundant and mundane tasks in order to free up employees to perform higher value work. RPA is a rapidly growing form of business process automation (BPM) technology based on the notion of software robots or artificial intelligence (AI) workers. These workers can also be referred to as digital labor. These tools automate interactions with the GUI, and often do so by repeating a set of demonstration actions performed by a user.
How RPA Works?
RPA bots replicate the actions of humans interacting with user interfaces, without making changes to existing interfaces or making manual errors. This significantly increases efficiency of the system to perform high volume work with zero margin for errors.
Software Robots are similar to physical robots
|Physical Robots||Software Robots|
Perform repetitive physical tasks
► Pick eight chocolates from the assembly line
Perform repetitive software tasks
► Log in to four different systems
Benefits of RPA
Create, test and deliver new automation in days or weeks
Eliminate copy/paste mistakes introduced by swivel chair integration
Fulfill automated tasks in seconds or minutes, round the clock
Develop automation quickly with simple record/playback functions

Features of Automation Anywhere
Some of the salient features of newly launched Automation Anywhere Enterprise A2019 are,
- Instant-on ease of use: The highly intuitive, web-based interface simplifies bot development, helping organizations automate more business processes than ever before. Using a web browser, users of all types and skill levels can log in and build their first bots in minutes. There’s nothing to install, configure or maintain. The RPA platform enables users to effortlessly create software bots on any operating system – Windows, macOS, or Linux – and on any device.
- Cloud-native for unprecedented scale: Enterprise A2019 is a cloud-native platform that offers customers both RPA-as-a-Service from the cloud, as well as an on-premise deployment with enterprise-class data privacy, security and encryption in each. The software-as-a-service model allows users to gain the inherent benefits of RPA, but with reduced cost of ownership, near-infinite scalability and dramatically decreased time to value. Customers can choose to deploy on-premise or provision it from the cloud.
- Infused with Artificial intelligence (AI): Users have the ability to leverage built-in AI capabilities and easily integrate third-party AI solutions, such as computer vision, natural language processing, and predictive modeling – all with the simplicity of drag-and-drop AI into any automation workflow.
- New Attended Automation 2.0: Users have access to new automation technology that provides greater bot and human collaboration across teams and workflows. This makes automation of front office processes much easier, faster and more cost efficient
Some of the Other features of Automation Anywhere are,
- Rapid Deployment: Reduce demand on IT with no installations, a self-service admin portal, interactive dashboard, real-time bot performance analytics.
- Instant Scalability: Adapt to unforeseen workload spikes instantly with auto-scaling.
- Any Environment: Deploy in a public or private cloud in any technology environment – server, desktop, mainframe.
