Modernizing RPA Deployment with an Eye Toward the Future

Your organization is only as successful as its processes. But if your business is, like many, using a patchwork of off-the-shelf and proprietary software and platforms — your core business processes aren’t running in true end-to-end fashion; instead, they’re executed in silos. 

The Robotic Process Automation (RPA) bots you deployed to replace repetitive human tasks? If you’re like 9 out of 10 process automation experts we surveyed, those bots may still provide value, but will likely turn cumbersome and complex as your business needs and processes evolve. And if you’ve tried to scale RPA deployments or implement more complex RPA script orchestrations, you’ve discovered how brittle and high-maintenance your RPAs have become. 

The end result of this situation is that you have less control, a lack of visibility, increased technical debt, and less-than-ideal integration — which impacts every aspect of your business. 

So how do you overcome these challenges, automating and optimizing all of your business processes? By implementing an enterprise-scale platform that orchestrates all of your people and systems, from microservices and IoT devices to AI/ML components and RPA bots. 

Modernization, Step-by-Step

The Camunda Platform can help. Our platform not only allows organizations a way to centrally monitor and analyze RPA bot activities across the enterprise, orchestrating multiple RPA bots and other activities within end-to-end business processes, but it also provides an architectural path forward for the future. And you can go at a pace that makes sense for your business; as a universal orchestration layer for both RPA and microservices, the Camuna platform allows organizations to migrate step-by-step (or bot-by-bot) instead of forcing a massive one-time event.  

Interested in learning more about how Camunda’s platform helps companies automate any process, anywhere? Check out the on-demand webinar featuring Camunda co-founder and CEO Jakob Freund. In his presentation, Jakob explains the best practices you need to know to modernize your RPA deployment, including:

  • Why organizations should employ Camunda’s three-phase approach to RPA Modernization 
  • How to expand process event monitoring to include RPA bot activities across the enterprise
  • Ways to save time with out-of-the-box integration with UiPath and reusable templates
  • How to apply BPMN standards and decisioning models for smarter RPA bot orchestration
  • Hello Process Automation, Good Bye 2020

    Like many, at Camunda we’re looking forward to getting 2020 behind us. Yet with all its challenges and unexpected twists and turns, we were fortunate to also experience many bright spots throughout the year.  The pandemic forced us, along with our user community, customers and partners to revisit well-laid plans and work around inevitable disruptions. Yet, as organizations large and small navigated the challenges associated with remote work and newly distributed teams, the need for the “digital enterprise” and fully automated processes became more apparent than ever. Our process automation platform proved to be fast to implement and scale in a time of need and helped many organizations around the world to adapt to new circumstances.  As a result, we...

  • Is Automation the Key to Modernization?

    Automation and modernization have been tightly linked for centuries. The Jacquard loom brought automation to weaving in the 18th century, transforming a craft into a modern factory enterprise. Similarly, early digital computers brought automation to banking and other industries, heralding the transformative modernization that characterized the mid-20th century. Today’s automation technologies represent the pinnacle of such technological process. From digital process automation to artificial intelligence, from enterprise content management to robotic process automation, today’s enterprise IT leaders have a plethora of automation technologies to choose from. You would think, then, that leveraging such technologies to modernize the enterprise would be a straightforward affair. Replace the hand weavers with automated looms or replace human ‘computers’ with mechanical ones and you’re done,...
