The ultimate objective in RPA (Robotic Process Automation) development is to end up with software programs that ‘run’ the bots that RPA depends on for performance of various tasks. It is an endeavor that typically begins with identification of tasks that are capable of being automated through bots.
So that is about undertaking business process analysis, to identify the processes that are capable of being automated. After identification of the processes that are capable of being automated comes the task of coding, in order to come up with software bots capable of performing those tasks.
Thereafter come the tasks of testing and ultimately deploying the software bots.
The focus of RPA development
The main focus in RPA development is to create software that performs the various tasks fast and accurately. This may be done from scratch using programming languages like python and ML. Or it may be done in low code platforms like UiPath.
Either way, the objective is to end up with software that is capable of performing the various tasks in a satisfactory manner. As mentioned earlier, before diving into the actual coding, one has to start with business process analysis to identify tasks that are capable of being automated.
And after the actual coding, one has to undertake thorough testing to ensure that there are no glitches in the operations of the software bots.
Another key focus area in RPA development is to create software bots that integrate seamlessly with other computer systems in the business. This is a question of first understanding what sorts of computer systems are in use within the enterprise.
Then the RPA developer has to figure out how to tweak the bot software, in order to ensure that it integrates properly with those other computer systems.
Another thing we focus on in RPA development is to deliver the software bots in a timely manner. This is about finding efficient ways of performing the various tasks in the bot development process, in order to ensure that the process moves as fast as it can.
It is also about making use of templates and other tools that hasten the RPA development process.
Yet another thing we focus on in RPA development is to deliver the software bots within budget. Again, this is about finding efficient ways of performing the various RPA development tasks.
It is also about reusing pieces of code that are capable of being reused, making full use of templates, using low code platforms like UiPath… and so on – to ultimately ensure that the RPA development process doesn’t run out of the budget.
