Perceived benefits from Robotic Process Automation are changing.
A great couple of days at Automation Anywhere’s Imagine event in London, which helped crystallise impressions of how the RPA market is evolving.
As we’re all aware, there’s increasing pressure on companies, and down the food-chain on their IT operations, to take the corporate use of technology to a new level. This is called various things – Digital Transformation and the Fourth Industrial Revolution are two that come to mind – but the themes are the same: more efficient use of IT resource to do more with less, closer alignment of technology with overall business goals and strategy, and the use of technology not simply to do business better, but to do it in radical new ways.
This week at CA World 2017 in Las Vegas, Extra Technology announced et mobile.
et mobile is a brand-new app, developed exclusively by Extra Technology, CA Technologies’ Preferred Workload Automation Partner with over a decade of experience designing, implementing and running Enterprise Workload Automation solutions.
Adrian Woffenden - one of Extra Technology’s senior RPA consultants - details some Automation Anywhere Dos, Don’ts and Bewares, based on real-life experience on customer deployments.
In February 2017 I blogged about the likely increase in RPA adoption that will result from a US Visa clamp-down and the UK’s impending Brexit.
By touching upon the offshoring policies of the US and UK, I received more feedback than from any previous topic, so this blog further explores the continuing shift from offshore Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) to Robotic Process Automation (RPA).
Traditional automation technology – for example workload, process and release automation - has been done by technologists on behalf of the business users. And for good reason; it uses application programming interfaces(APIs) – documented apertures in the application, built to industry standards, through which programmers can interact with the application and use them for purposes like automation.
