Whereas past releases put a big emphasis on extending functionality regarding the "RPA baseline" by including more activities and connectors for background automation, this year's newest versions all ship with unprecedented, possibly game-changing features, enlarging RPA's footprint within businesses. Let's have a look at the general trends visible in 2019 and dive into the opportunities and challenges they pose to current and future users of RPA software. These trends shift the role of the software from pure RPA to fully integrated intelligent automation platforms, which consist of multiple, modular building blocks for process efficiency, visualization, and automation. This approach enables the business to leverage automation to a far greater extent than ever before by putting these platforms at the core of the business processes. Consequently, complete end-to-end automation, unprecedented process transparency, and massive scalability by democratizing the usage of automation can be achieved.
Leveraging automation as a vehicle to transform operations is no longer a new concept. With numerous examples of successful implementations across all industry sectors, organisations are now moving beyond "Automation 101" to strategically deploying automation for widespread business value and results, writes Chris Huff, Chief Strategy Officer, Kofax. Leveraging automation as a vehicle to transform operations is no longer a new concept. With numerous examples of successful implementations across all industry sectors, organisations are now moving beyond "Automation 101" to strategically deploying automation for widespread business value and results, writes Chris Huff, Chief Strategy Officer, Kofax. Indeed, there's no better motivation than to look at the success achieved by firms which have implemented automation widely within their operations.
Over the past few decades, technology-based innovations have added a new meaning to business conversations, thus changing the way we live and work in the digital age. With increased focus on improving business agility and performance, to sail through the challenging age of digital transformation, it is in the interest of modern businesses to leverage these cutting-edge technologies to maximize operational efficiencies and sustain profitability. The journey so far and how new technologies will impact key verticals in the coming years. The age of transformation will witness the emergence of varied possibilities and use-cases with the intermingling of new age technologies like Artificial Intelligence, IoT, automation and analytics. While Artificial Intelligence has many use cases, practically in every field, we would see that the best end-to-end application of Artificial Intelligence will happen in conjunction with automation.
TECHNOLOGY spending is on the rise as business leaders embrace workplace automation. After all, automation is the secret weapon to the robust digital transformation that all industries are currently experiencing. Those that are ahead of the digital maturity curve are already using intelligent automation to harness the competitive advantage. Intelligent automation is the layering of automation and other intelligent technologies that deliver the digital workforce dream. With intelligent automation, human staffs and robot counterparts working in tandem is closer.
The key component of any successful automated testing process is test automation frameworks. Reduced maintenance costs, testing efforts and a higher return on investment (ROI) for QA teams are just some of the key benefits the offer while optimizing Agile processes. Executives in the software development domain have fostered an extensive understanding of how implementing an automation framework benefits their business and many in this space have started using the term "framework" quite often, knowing how it can become key to the success of software automation project. But still, to many, the question remains – what exactly is a test automation framework and automation script? How does it work and what advantages can the framework bring to the testing process?
