How to Improve Automation with Process Mining and RPA

For organizations looking to automate processes for better performance, a combination of RPA and process mining can help. Let’s take a step back to understand why. Automation that’s implemented without data-backed decisions often yields poor results. And data without action leads nowhere. To get the most out of any technology investment, you have to be sure you're using the right combination of tools and techniques.

Where's RPA headed in 2024? 6 Predictions

In a business environment where automation is becoming increasingly essential, understanding the trajectory of robotic process automation (RPA) is more important than ever. But what exactly can we expect from the future of RPA in 2024? How will the bots themselves change? How will the market change? And what will these changes mean for buyers? In this post, we’ll look at the changes you can expect to see in RPA this year.

Leveraging RPA For Katalon To Improve Testing

Robotic process automation (RPA) is a software system automation approach that employs pre-programmed “bots” to automate manual tasks, typically through a user interface (UI). RPA tools are primarily used to automate business processes that once depended on human resources and were highly repetitive and operational in nature. Many of these business processes are rooted in legacy technology, which often acts as a bottleneck due to its outdated nature.

RPA in Procurement: How to Enhance the Government Acquisition Process

Robotic process automation (RPA) refers to the use of software robots, or "bots," that mimic human actions to automate repetitive tasks within business processes. RPA technology can interact with applications, systems, and data sources to automate procurement tasks such as data entry, document processing, and report generation.

Business Process Automation (BPA) vs. Robotic Process Automation (RPA): What's the Difference?

Business process automation (BPA) refers to the use of computer systems and software to automate business processes or tasks. These days, many people simply refer to BPA as process automation: a set of tools that automates entire business processes, end to end. Robotic process automation (RPA), on the other hand, is a single part of a process automation toolset. RPA fits into a process automation strategy by automating repetitive tasks within a process.

RPA vs. Hyperautomation: What's the Difference?

Have you seen the efficiency gains you’d hoped for from your investments in task automation tools like robotic process automation (RPA)? Despite prioritizing automation efforts, many IT leaders still lack the tools for broader, end-to-end process automation—or as Gartner calls it, hyperautomation. If you’ve found yourself grappling with numerous disconnected islands of automation, where do you go from here?

Process Mining and RPA: Fine Tune Automation Efforts for the Most Impact

To get the most out of any technology investment, you have to be sure you're using it in the right way. Just as you wouldn't remove a lid from a jar with a spatula, you shouldn’t use robotic process automation (RPA) for a purpose it isn't well suited to. The same is true for process mining and RPA. To maximize the benefits of both, you first need to understand what these two technologies do best.

Don't Use RPA Alone - Build Better Automations Using the Right Technologies

On its own, RPA is a great resource for automating tasks that are manual, repetitive, time-intensive, or part of systems that have no APIs. But there are other automation technologies with capabilities that are much better suited than RPA to the varied and complex parts of your processes. And we think you deserve the power of choice when it comes to how you automate. With Appian, you get access to an entire suite of complete automation capabilities, including intelligent document processing, AI, smart services, integrations, decision rules…and yes, RPA.
