What is Robotics & Process Automation?

Date : Nov 7, 2017 11:45:00 AM

RPA is a software robot or application/tool that can be configured to perform tasks normally performed by a human, using rule-based processes. 

[EXTRACT] The “tool” can be configured to capture and interpret actions of existing applications used in various business processes, just as a human operator would do. These tools can mimic human actions without associated errors. The most important attribute of these tools is audit and logging. Any action or step taken by them can be logged and audited. Human resource can watch and perform a surveillance of each steps and actions of these tools. This feature also differentiates RPA from Straight Through Processing (STP) tools where there is no visibility to human eyes of the steps/action taken by a automated process.
