Robotic Process Automation – RPA Overview
If you’re not learning robotic process automation, or, RPA, right now… you’re already behind.
Much in the same way physical robots have been rapidly replacing industrial, blue-collar jobs, software robots will be replacing a high percentage of white collar jobs… sooner than you think. The most likely way to adapt & thrive in this new age will be to know how to build & maintain software robots!
In this course I’ll provide you with a clear overview of robotic process automation including:
- Robotic Process Automation history & drivers
- Benefits, challenges, and risks of Robotic Process Automation
- Industries & applications where RPA fits the best
- An overview of current Robotic Process Automation tools & capabilities
- A basic software robot demo
- An implementation plan you can use as a guideline to introduce Robotic Process Automation into your company
The goal of this course is to help you see the big picture of robotic process automation and prepare you for further hands-on study using the RPA tech primer course, and an RPA tool course of your choice.
Welcome to the Robotic Process Automation Overview course. This video provides a high level overview of what's in the course.
Just a little bit about me and my background if you're interested.
Let's take a high level look at exactly what Robotic Process Automation is, and how RPA can improve any company.
Robotic Process Automation has nothing to do with physical robots!
If you have test automation skills, RPA will be a natural extension for you. What's most important is that while test automation jobs are becoming more saturated and competitive, RPA jobs are exploding, and companies currently can't find enough qualified people! People with a testing background also make for better RPA developers, because you usually test your own robots better before releasing them.
Robotic Process Automation pertains to software robots. Let's have a quick look at how to build one.
Robotic Process Automation results in software robots that are faster, better, and cheaper than humans. Does offshoring still make sense?
Robotic Process Automation will undoubtedly cause white collar job losses along with the benefits it brings. Having the right RPA mindset will ensure you don't lose sight of the big picture.
Robotic Process Automation yields the best ROI in certain industries.
Robotic Process Automation has specific challenges & risks. Do they outweigh the benefits?
Robotic Process Automation isn't all or nothing. Find out several different levels.
