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
  • Monitoring Camunda Platform 7 with Prometheus

    Monitoring is an essential facet of running applications in a production system. Through this process, organizations collect and analyze data, and determine if a program is performing as expected within set boundaries. When combined with alerting, monitoring allows for detecting unexpected system behavior to mitigate exceptional situations as fast as possible. Furthermore, tracking the performance of a system enables organizations to improve those aspects that have the biggest impact with higher priority. One essential aspect of monitoring is the list of key metrics you want to observe. There are different categories of statistics that can be of interest here. To observe the defined metrics, there are plenty of application monitoring tools on the market today. They differ in many aspects...

    Could Process Orchestration be the “Glue” for...

    The API economy is taking off, propelled by an explosion of activity across API tools and platforms. According to a 2021 report from Postman, developers reported spending nearly half of their time working on APIs, and 94% of companies planned to increase their investments in APIs in 2022. API-first development is also gaining traction, with an impressive 67% of companies embracing this methodology. Companies like Twilio and Stripe emerged as early winners in this new economy, with the promise of many more to come.  APIs offer organizations an opportunity to tap into best-of-breed software components without having to spend precious time or development resources creating them from scratch. With that said, an often-overlooked aspect of the API economy is how...

  • Automation in banking: 6 considerations for digital...

    Automation and banking have been two peas in a technological pod since the 1934 introduction of the IBM ® 801 Bank Proof machine, a check sorting machine. Later innovations like the automated teller machine and the debit card continued the banking automation trend of digitizing analog processes. With the advent of the internet, machine learning, and cloud computing, there are still so many automation opportunities to explore.  For instance, using AI for risk assessment, automating the classification of unstructured data, or reducing manual work can help you increase the agility of the overall organization, improve the customer experience, and get new features and products to market much more rapidly. We’re going to explore six concepts to keep in mind for...
