Robotic Process Automation (RPA) technology creates digital factories to automate and integrate any repetitive administrative task in order to take the mundane out of work. This solution reduces labor-intensive processes by imitating human effort to complete tasks, thereby boosting the capabilities of companies that perform high-volume transactional processes. Operating non-invasively on the surface (UI layer) without compromising the underlying IT infrastructure, RPA bridges the technology gap between fragmented, semi-structured legacy systems.
Today’s companies automate their time consuming, repetitive human tasks and replace them with RPA. What gets replaced?
Harnessing RPA’s capabilities to handle these mundane processes provides benefits such as:
RPA has three functional components:
In a typical flow, a process specifies detailed instructions for bots to perform, and bots are “published” to the repository of the orchestrator. Each bot is then loaded on a client environment, which may be virtualized or physical, where it interacts directly with business applications. The orchestrator assigns jobs to the bots and monitors their activities, while users review and resolve any exceptions or escalations found in the process.
Micro Focus test automation solutions offer tools that allow companies to easily create bots to automate rules-driven business processes. Integrated with Micro Focus operations orchestration, complete actions are automated using workflows that link steps to standardize RPA processes.
Micro Focus supports and extends typical RPA capabilities with:
