The bots are coming...The bots are coming...

The age of intelligent automation is fast arriving. The age of talented programmers sitting down and writing complex scripts to do simple tasks are fast becoming the thing of past.

As word of caution, please do not read into this as programmers will not longer be needed. On the contrary, their roles will continue to evolve as it has been for the past 50+ years.

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is rapidly changing the application development landscape and needs. Please note this has nothing to do with electronics or the physical robots that greet you at hotels etc. RPA is a way of automating business processes using software. Imagine a human sitting at desk and doing the same repetitive task of copying information from one application and inputting it into another application. A bot can do the same process very efficiently and error free. This is what RPA is all about. Automating repetitive processing quickly.

Depending on the type of software you use, there are varying levels of smarts built into most of those. At one end, you have automatic error correction and Optical Character Recognition abilities. On the other end, there are tools that can auto discover your business processes by monitoring the human behavior on the computer. The ideal tool for your business depends on a number of factors such as the types of industry you are in, what type of resources you have, the type of processes you are attempting to automate etc.

So now you know what RPA is, are you more curious about this can this be business altering at your place? Are you wondering how you can get started with this? Are you afraid of how hard the learning process would be once you decide to take the plunge? Well, you know where to reach out for help!
