What is RPA

What is RPA?

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is non-intrusive software technology that mimics the rules-based actions of a human interacting within such systems in order to execute business processes.  

What can RPA "bots" do?

While by no means an exhaustive list, RPA robots can:

  • Log into applications and connect to system APIs
  • Move files and folders
  • Open emails and attachments
  • Extract structured and semi-structured data from documents, PDFs, emails and other similar data sources
  • Read and write to databases
  • Team with human counterparts by completing rules-based steps and then pausing for human action (approval or approval with edits) and then resuming the activities based on the human action/direction provided
What are the benefits of RPA?

The benefits of RPA are numerous, and in many cases, almost immediate. Overall, RPA's greatest benefit is its ability to improve business efficiencies while also making employees more productive by removing the mundane and tedious parts of their job.  In a nutshell, the primary benefits include, but certainly not limited to….Improved accuracy and reliability, tremendous scalability, increased productivity, and an almost immediate return on investment (ROI).

How does Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) play into RPA?

Since inception, RPA has been the "muscle" behind getting routine tasks done through automation.  In other words, given specific detail on exactly what the ‘human does’, RPA will replicate those activities faster and with less errors.  The introduction of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning ML) into this process adds intelligence to this “muscle” – enabling the automation to do such things as make intelligent decisions (e.g. based on past experience), or understand unstructured data (e.g. paragraphs of text) based on technology such as Natural Language Processing (NLP), or even learn from its own mistakes.
