What is RPA and How it works?

In this tutorial, I will explain What is RPA, why RPA used, and how does the Robotic Process Automation work in a real scenario with examples.

What is RPA and How it works?

“Robotic Process Automation is a simple computer coded software that automates manual activities by performing repetitive rules-based tasks.” Only substantially better: an RPA software robot never sleeps, makes zero mistakes and costs a lot less than an employee.

Using Robotic Process Automation tools, one can configure a robot to perform certain repetitive task like:

    • Capture & Manipulate data
    • Trigger certain pre-defined actions

The whole objective of using Robotic Process Automation is to reduce the time taken by the manual employee on repetitive tasks. Now, let’s understand it with a couple of simple RPA example.

Web Site Scraping: If you want to gather some information eg Share prices from stock trading sites, prices of items from an e-commerce site, it will be a good use case to implement RPA.

HR Salary Processing: Can process the salary details of each employee based on timesheet data, leave taken, CTC, etc.
