Robotic Process Automation (RPA): 8 Key Concepts

This article about the main concepts of Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and ideal use cases included expert commentary from Siddhartha Sharad, director. Sample excerpt: "'An RPA bot typically performs the automated tasks the same way a human would – i.e., logging into systems with an ID, entering data, gathering output or results, performing rule-based tasks, and so on,” explains Siddhartha Sharad, director at consultancy Pace Harmon....'Top RPA providers offer simple-to-deploy solutions that anyone with a few hours of training, and limited or no development experience can use to automate basic, day-to-day tasks such as generating Excel reports, filing documents into specific folders, or sending automated emails,' Sharad says. 'Even with such basic automation, users can significantly change their work profile [by automating] tedious, time-consuming tasks and increasing focus on value-added work.'”
