What is RPA | A Guide to Robotic
Process Automation - Mindmajix
In this article, we will try to understand the latest kid in the block of automation and
automation engineering. Robotic Process Automation, though a buzzword equivalent
to Business Process Administration (BPA) / Business Process Management (BPM)
has certain differences that clearly stands out between these two identical twins.
Robotic Process Automation finds its usage with the lowest level of technical
knowledge in individuals managing these software robots. Let us not take all of it in
this section only, but let us take a walk through in an organized manner to gain the
most of this technology. This article will be more than enough for an individual to
gain the best understanding of what Robotic Process Automation is and where can it
find its implementations?
What is RPA (Robotic Process Automation)?
Robotic Process Automation, by definition, means the use of software with Artificial
Intelligence (AI) and also Machine Learning (ML) capabilities to handle high volumes
of repeatable tasks which would previously have to be done by respective individuals
than the software robots. Robotic Process Automation can be coined as that trend or
breed of technology that has popped up over the past few years that is making the
news in the industries of Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and Automation
Engineering. Robotic Process Automation can be considered as the system agnostic
tool or software which makes it an ideal choice for any Organization to automate
things in a better manner than the orthodox way of doing business without any
Having said all that, Robotic Process Automation can be considered pretty
comfortably as the low-risk process of doing business in an automated way than
using the most precious human resources on things that get repetitive over the time.
Robotic Process Automation tools are for the non-technical business users who want
to take advantage of the latest technology to do things for them instead of them
doing it by themselves. This point attracts most of the non-technical users to gain
access to these tools and automate the frustratingly repetitive jobs to be done by the
What can Robotic Process Automation do?
Robotic Process Automation is a software-based process, which can be used to
perform a lot of varied variety of tasks. This can include in the maintenance of
records, queries, calculations, complicated details, orders, transactions and anything
of that sort. Looking at these varied kinds of details that can be handled, one thing
for sure is that its implementation is not restricted by any factors as such. Hence the
areas where it can be deployed, implemented, suggested are almost everything and
hence the craze and the buzz that it is creating within the automation space and in
general as well.
The prominent terminals from which these Robotic Process Automation robots can
be integrated are Mainframe terminals, SAP, Oracle, Blackline, Salesforce and much
more that fall into the same category of these. As per the Clients that it can interact
with, there is no hurdle in integrating with technologies, frameworks or languages like
Citrix, .Net, HTML, and Java. Any possibility of programmatic automation, Robotic
Process Automation can find its way to root itself as the only option for automation.

Processes Across Your Entire Enterprise
There are no inefficiencies or challenges that are not answered with Robotic Process
Automation, hence the trend in choosing it for all the required automation needs. It
works pretty well with all the legacy business systems and on the other hand, can
also manage people-intensive processes without any human intervention (by
simulating things to be done by human beings as such). Robotic Process Automation
not just automates your automation needs but also helps to curtail the needed funds
that would go elsewhere if it were not to be automated with it.
There aren’t any processes that are not suitable to Robotic Process Automation, but
the comfort factor lies with processes that have proper documentation and also bestlaid steps on how certain processes need to be performed – then such scenarios can
be completely automated with the help of Robotic Process Automation.
For example, credit card applications has a very thorough process that can fully be
automated with all the details that are required starting from providing the required
forms, next to collect all the required documents, next to perform all the credit
checks, background checks, check for the eligibility of holding one credit card based
on his repayment capabilities, offering an individual with the best of the features that
are available with the bank and lure the customers into the other lines of businesses
within the bank.
Hence the whole process can be fully automated with the least amount of human
intervention into the whole process as such. Apart from that, there are these things
that can be achieved without any fuss:
Greater end-to-end Automation:
There are tools that can provide end to end automation for Organizations that belong
to certain lines of businesses or certain business processes within the complete
workflow. Having said that, the whole army of the software robots can be triggered
based on the requirement at any point of the actual business process to perform the
most repetitive works performed by individuals for an Organization. The result is
much greater automation and greater visibility into the overall business process.
Rapid Transformation without Invasive Integration
In the current market, there are many organizations that are stuck with their old
complex business processes and also the legacy business systems – that have
become roadblocks in the path of automation and innovation. Instead of complete
automation, targeting organizations as like these to automate the parts of business
processes which are feasible and then to automate the rest of the process. This not
only ensures that the Organization is on the right path of innovation and also opens
up better options for the Organization as well.
Collaboration between Humans and Digital Workforce:
As there will be a clear marking between the works that Robotic Process Automation
might cover and the rest will be taken over the actual workforce. This ensures that
there will be better collaboration amongst individuals and also the Robotic Process
Automation software robots as well. This brings us to the point where an individual
can co-exist with a virtual employee who does things that can be done in the most

What are the benefits of Robotic Process Automation?
After going through all the above sections of this article, you should be equally
convinced on all the benefits that we have compiled that an individual or an
Organization will reap with the Robotic Process Automation implementation within
their workplace. There is arguably anyone who would reject any of the following
advantages of Robotic Process Automation:
* The accuracy and precision of the quality of work
* Minimization of errors (human errors per se!)
* Process monitoring can be achieved to the most granular level
* Every action by a live robotic process can be comfortably recorded to be
analyzed and optimized further
* Security compliances, auditing, and reporting are perfectly handled
* Lesser Human interaction/intervention
* Organizing smaller workforce to do things that matter the most, rest is
covered by RPA
* Over the time, library of frequently used components be built for further
* Fully flexible and completely Scalable
* Limited to work only on the front-end avoiding complexity, speeds up time-tomarket
* Reduced risk
* Availability – 24 x 7 a week, 365 days a year guaranteed
* Higher speed and throughput
* Close to no IT support required for managing these RPA software robots
* Possibility of continuous learning and improvement wherever required
* Can maintain its Disaster recovery site itself for its own use
* Curtails operational challenges to zero as these are completely manageable
* Sensitive data can be processed by RPA software robots under strict
* Ability to route work based on the load that a single unit of RPA software
robot can handle
