Robotic Process Automation is the Process of automating the workflows with the help of robots/software to reduce the involvement of humans.
“RPA is a embodiment of business process automation that allows anyone to define a set of instructions for a robot or ‘Bot’ to perform.”
For novice users, RPA can be defined as a process by which a software bot uses a combination of automation, computer vision, and machine learning to automate repetitive, high-volume tasks that are rule-based and trigger-driven.
There are three important terms that we need to understand: Robotic, Process and Automation. Let me explain you each of these terms one by one.
• Robotic: Entities which mimic human actions are called Robots.
• Process: Sequence of steps which lead to a meaningful activity. For example, the process of making tea or your favorite dish, etc.
• Automation: Any process which is done by a robot without human intervention.
If we summarize all the terms together then, mimicking human actions to perform a sequence of steps that lead to a meaningful activity, without any human intervention is known as Robotic Process Automation
A business can ensure a seamless transformation and achieve maximum benefit from RPA by selecting the right processes for RPA.
