RPA (robotics process automation) is dominating the modern world alongside AI (Artificial Intelligence). AI (Artificial Intelligence) is better known with the likes of Chat GPT and other AI tools all over our newsfeeds and being used more frequently in everyday life. But you may not be familiar with RPA – so what is it and how is it evolving? Read on.
RPA is evolving rapidly, and every day there are new significant advancements in the RPA industry. Here’s how RPA is quite literally taking off and benefiting our modern world:
Adaptability: RPA has gained significant traction across various industries, including finance, healthcare, manufacturing, customer service, and more. Organisations adopt RPA to streamline operations, improve efficiency, and reduce costs.
Automation: RPA focuses on automating routine and mundane tasks that are rules-based and are typically performed by humans. Examples include data entry, invoice processing, report generation, and other similar tasks.
User Interface Interaction: RPA bots interact with user interfaces, replicating human actions on computer systems. They can perform tasks across multiple applications and systems without the need for complex integrations.
New Software Businesses: If you know anything about RPA, you would have heard of the dominant software companies within the industry like UI Path, Blue Prism and Automation Anywhere. They provide the tools to design, deploy and manage RPA bots. Other software companies are hot on their heels, however, so this is definitely a space to watch.
The cognitive capabilities: Over the years, RPA has expanded beyond simple task automation to incorporate cognitive capabilities such as natural language processing and machine learning. This enables bots to handle more complex tasks, including data analysis, decision-making, and even basic customer interactions.
The main benefits of RPA:
RPA offers numerous benefits, including increased efficiency, improved accuracy, reduced costs, and the ability to free up human employees from repetitive tasks to focus on more strategic and valuable activities.
It’s evolving integration:
RPA has begun to integrate with AI and ML (machine learning) technologies. These integrations allow for much more advanced automation. The limits really are endless here!
Significant advancements are emerging all the time in the RPA space. There are always new boundaries being pushed, new limits being reached and new records being set.
It’s an exciting time to be involved in such an advancing industry, but as technology advances, it is essential to have the right people on board with the expertise to navigate this technical area.
