Book Description Robotic Process Automation (RPA) enables automating business processes using software robots. Software robots interpret, trigger responses, and communicate with other systems just like humans do. Robotic processes and intelligent automation tools can help businesses improve the effectiveness of services faster and at a lower cost than current methods. This book is the perfect start to your automation journey, with a special focus on one of the most popular RPA tools: UiPath. Learning Robotic Process Automation takes you on a journey from understanding the basics of RPA to advanced implementation techniques. You will become oriented in the UiPath interface and learn about its workflow. Once you are familiar with the environment, we will get hands-on with automating different applications such as Excel, SAP, Windows and web applications, screen and web scraping, working with user events, as well as understanding exceptions and debugging. By the end of the book, you'll not only be able to build your first software bot, but also you'll wire it to perform various automation tasks with the help of best practices for bot deployment. What you will learn Understand Robotic Process Automation technology Learn UiPath programming techniques to deploy robot configurations Explore various data extraction techniques Learn about integrations with various popular applications such as SAP and MS Office Debug a programmed robot including logging and exception handling Maintain code version and source control Deploy and control Bots with UiPath Orchestrator Who this book is for If you would like to pursue a career in Robotic Process Automation or improve the efficiency of your businesses by automating common tasks, then this book is perfect for you. Prior programming knowledge of either Visual Basic or C# will be useful.
Robotic process automation (RPA) is the use of software equipped with artificial intelligence (AI) and capabilities of machine learning (ML) so as to handle high volume, and repeatable task that required to be performed by humans previously. Though robotic process automation is mostly viewed as threat to job market since they have the ability to do several tasks continuously thus replacing employees, Some IT leaders takes it as a positive thing to human workers as they will eliminate mundane as well as repetitive work from their everyday tasks, allowing them to focus on much engaging projects and tasks. As the RPA take over the field, the will be new business opportunities, new roles, and more demands. The lucky are those who will embrace it since will prosper at the end. The Future of RPA: As technology is moving fast, people should expect things to witness in RPA field. Here are some of the predictions we have regarding the RPA. - The spread of RPA impact Within Organizations - Integration of RPA With Other Tools - Artificial Intelligence In near future use of automated tools in the organization will be part and parcel of any business.

Robotics is slowly creeping into our lives, and soon, robots will be everywhere. Do you know everything there is to know about robotics? Do you want to know more about robotics? Do you want to discover the advantages of robotics? If so, then you've come to the right place.
While Robotic Process Automation (RPA) has been around for about 20 years, it has hit an inflection point because of the convergence of cloud computing, big data and AI. This book shows you how to leverage RPA effectively in your company to automate repetitive and rules-based processes, such as scheduling, inputting/transferring data, cut and paste, filling out forms, and search. Using practical aspects of implementing the technology (based on case studies and industry best practices), you’ll see how companies have been able to realize substantial ROI (Return On Investment) with their implementations, such as by lessening the need for hiring or outsourcing. By understanding the core concepts of RPA, you’ll also see that the technology significantly increases compliance – leading to fewer issues with regulations – and minimizes costly errors. RPA software revenues have recently soared by over 60 percent, which is the fastest ramp in the tech industry, and they are expected to exceed $1 billion by the end of 2019. It is generally seamless with legacy IT environments, making it easier for companies to pursue a strategy of digital transformation and can even be a gateway to AI. The Robotic Process Automation Handbook puts everything you need to know into one place to be a part of this wave. What You'll Learn Develop the right strategy and plan Deal with resistance and fears from employees Take an in-depth look at the leading RPA systems, including where they are most effective, the risks and the costs Evaluate an RPA system Who This Book Is For IT specialists and managers at mid-to-large companies
