White Paper #1 : RPA: Agility and efficiency for a successful digital transformation
RPA (Robotic Process Automation) allows software developers to configure software robots (Bots) to take control, manipulate and drive existing applications through automatic data management, transaction processing, response generation or communication with other internal or external computer systems.
RPA is based on a low code approach: robot programming is often done using a visual editor and requires minimal development skills and a low volume of computer code fragments.
RPA tools often offer the possibility to record the actions taken by users in order to produce a specific script reproducing these actions. This script would then be extended, configured and packaged as a "Software Robot".
