The big role of Robotic Process Automation today.
The great strength of RPA is the processing of structured data. It does this reliably, precisely and quickly, on the basis of defined rules. A great advantage of Robotic Process Automation is that it does not require deep integration into different systems, but works via the existing user or desktop interfaces of the respective applications. RPA is also known as bridging technology, as it can be used to quickly connect different systems.
In recent years, many companies have decided and introduced Robotic Process Automation (RPA), to drive process optimization. It can be assumed that the trend is that RPA will not tear down, because great results are possible with little effort. That’s on the credit side.
On the other hand, after a certain amount of time, it becomes more difficult for many companies to use suitable processes for RPA. Unstructured data is the main reason why technology is reaching its economic and technical limits.
In a digital world, RPA becomes a key application when it comes to transforming process and information structures. For this reason, companies that rely on a large amount of data due to their business activities, have been working with Robotic Process Automation for a long time: financial service providers, insurance companies, energy providers and trading companies – to name just a few examples.
RPA thus supports the automation of numerous processes and thus lowers costs without having to change or replace existing applications. Robotic Process Automation is used, among other things, for repeated data entry functions, as well as for downloads and uploads in the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) area.
