RPA - 10 Powerful Examples in Enterprise - Algorithm-X Lab


More and more enterprises are turning to a promising technology called RPA (robotic process automation) to become more productive and efficient. Successful implementation also helps to cut costs and reduce error rates. RPA can automate mundane and predictable tasks and processes leaving employees to focus more on high-value work. Other companies, see RPA as the next step before fully adopting intelligent automation technology such as machine learning and artificial intelligence. RPA is one of the fastest-growing sectors in the field of enterprise technology. In 2018 RPA software soared in value to $864 million, a growth of over 63%. In the course of this article, we clearly explain exactly what RPA really is and how it works. To help our understanding we will also explore the potential benefits and disadvantages of this technology. Finally, we will highlight some of the most powerful and exciting ways in which it is already transforming enterprises in a range of industries. Robotic Process Automation, or RPA for short, is a way of automating structured, repetitive, or rules-based tasks and processes. It has a number of different applications. Its tools can capture data, retrieve information, communicate with other digital systems and process transactions. Implementation can help to prevent human error, particularly when charged with completing long, repetitive tasks. It can also reduce labor costs. A report by Deloitte revealed that one large, commercial bank implemented RPA into 85 software bots. These were used to tackle 13 processes interacting with 1.5 million requests in a year.

Start your business with robots


The RPA stands for "Robotic Process Automation." It supports several manual and repetitive tasks to automate like human beings. We can say that "RPA is a process of creation and training of software bot (automated programs) to automate the business process." "The RPA is the technology which allows anyone to configure the computer software or robot for emulating and integrating the actions of humans to interact within the digital systems to implement or execute the business process." RPA is the digital workforce. It interacts with the computer system in the same as the human does. It automates repetitive and tedious tasks. Robotic Process Automation is the sequence of commands which are executed by the automated programs under some defined sets of business rules. The primary purpose of RPA is to replace repetitive and boring clerical tasks into the virtual workforce by robots or machines. We train the bots (automated programs) what to do and let them do the work. The RPA is an acronym for Robotic Process Automation. The Robotic Process automation is used in both IT and Non-IT industries. Nowadays, every organization have a repetitive, boring, tedious task so, RPA is necessary to eliminate these types of task by making the automation of tasks.

The bots turning businesses into digital transformers


Analyst Forrester defines robotic process automation (RPA) as a technology that provisions software agents – bots – that can mimic human interactions with software systems. These bots run predictable tasks, and act either in concert with humans (attended RPA) or mostly autonomously (unattended RPA). Increasingly, RPA is adding artificial intelligence (AI)-based capabilities, such as reading unstructured data. IT research firm Computer Economics says in its April 2019 Technology trends report that bots are typically taught by human example to respond to various triggers. For example, when an employee submits a change of address form to the human resources (HR) department, the bot could then be used to trigger an update to the records in payroll, benefits systems, expense reporting and accounts payable, just as a human clerical worker might do.

Managing the autonomous evolution - Businessday NG


Humans are now generating an estimated 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every single day, with more data being created in the past two years than in all of human history. Managing this growing flood is complex and the task comes with a high level of responsibility. The 24/7 requirements on business and huge security challenges mean that'manual" management is no longer an option. Particularly when combined together they will let businesses manage and get value from their information more easily, effectively, and with less effort. One technology in particular that is unlocking new levels of value is the autonomous database.

Making AI a reality in banking


Extensive automation of business processes in international banking using artificial intelligence, robotics and machine learning, which I'm going to collectively call robotic process automation (RPA), is set to transform the way banks and financial services firms do business – particularly in areas such as trade finance and similar complex banking products. A wealth of data is generated day in, day out in the financing of international trade – from documentary credits to guarantees, loans and cross-border payments, and today there's still a huge amount of manual processing involved in managing the process. Clearly, as banks seek to reduce costs and increase efficiency, they're looking to automate as much as possible. Recent studies by Accenture have found that AI adoption could as much as double economic growth rates within the coming decades, with the potential to increase productivity by more than 50% compared to today's old fashioned and legacy IT systems. Robotic Process Automation (RPA) involves the creation of software robots that act as virtual workers who can be rapidly "trained" by business users in an intuitive manner.
