• Three hidden threats of RPA technical debt...

    If you’re looking to selectively automate the work of individual components in legacy systems, and help automate processes without a significant time investment — RPA should be on your radar.  Global companies like Deutsche Telekom have already introduced and automated 2,500 individual bots, resulting in savings of more than 100 million Euros. However, relying too heavily on RPA can land you in hot water. Paul Jones, Business Automation Services at NatWest even classifies RPA as technical debt.  So what can you do to avoid this debt?

  • Reporting Security Issues

    Maintaining the security of Camunda BPM is an important task for us. In our documentation, we have published our Security Policy which explains how we deal with security issues.

To give you an example: In January, Kai Ullrich from Code White approached us and reported that using Camunda’s API, it is possible, once authenticated, to submit a...
