Popular RPA tools functionality differences

Robotic process automation is growing area and many IT developers across the board started up-skill in this popular area. I have written this post for the benefit of Software developers who are interested in RPA also called Robotic Process Automation.

In my previous post, I have described that total 12 tools are available in the market. Out of those 3 tools are most popular. Those are Automation anywhere, BluePrism and Uipath. Many programmers asked what are the differences between these tools. I have given differences of all these three RPA tools.
Automation Tools
Automation tools popularity according to forester research

BluePrism  strong areas:

  • Blue Prism has taken a simple concept, replicating user activity on the desktop, and made it enterprise strength. 
    • The technology is scalable, secure, resilient, and flexible and is supported by a comprehensive methodology, operational framework and provided as packaged software.
    • The technology is developed and deployed within a “corridor of IT governance” and has sophisticated error handling and process modelling capabilities to ensure it can perform at scale within demanding, highly sophisticated operating environments.
  • The combination of SOA/BPMS and Blue Prism Robotic Automation platform provides almost total coverage of process automation opportunities
  • 'Object Studio' is the componet where you can develop script for business process automations
  • 'Process studio' is the component where you can test the objects that already developed in Object studio
  • Run and managing the process is monitored by 'Control Room'.
  • The data stored in this tool is SQL server
  • Architecture of BluePrism - Read for more details here.

Automation Anywhere strong areas:

  • The RPA tool from automation anywhere is highly metured model and you can find lot of examples and material on this tool. The architecture comprises of Client, Bots and Control Room
  • Automation Anywhere is software designed to automate virtually any computer-based process with ease. 
    • No-programming-required interface makes it possible for anyone in an organization to quickly and reliably automate tasks of any complexity, including application integration, IT processes, data extraction and migration. 
    • It is available in Standard, Premier, Small Business, and Enterprise editions. 
    • The tool capabilities includes: Task to EXE, Job scheduler, Drag-and-drop task editor, Workflow and process mapping tools, Built-in Windows, web, and task recorders, Single-click web data extraction capabilities, and more.
  • The data will be stored in this tool is SQL express
  • The following five components present in Automation anywhere:
    • 1- IIS
    • 2- Framework Setup(AA)
    • 3- Sql Express/SQL 2014
    • 4- Control room setup
    • 5- Client installation

Uipath key areas:

  • Uipath comprises of three parts:
    • UiPath Studio– UiPath Studio is a highly intuitive visual processing modeling tool that helps you to design the process you intend to automate without any effort. The platform offers numerous best practices templates enabling users to have complete control over the automation.
    • UiPath Robots–UiPath Robots has front office and back office bots that execute the processes defined by you. While the front office robot shares the interface layer with the human agent who holds control over the utilization, the back office robot works in batch mode, without any intervention.
    • UiPath Orchestrator – UiPath Orchestrator allows you to deploy, start, stop, and schedule processes using a console and track the activities of robots. It offers a single interface to manage multiple robots that are running in your system.
  • The data will be stored in this tools is SQL server/Oracle

Four Tableau products a quick review and explanation

I want to share you what are the Products most popular.

Total four products. Read the details below.

Tableau desktop-(Business analytics anyone can use) - Tableau  Desktop  is  based  on  breakthrough technology  from  Stanford  University  that  lets  you drag & drop to analyze data. You can connect to  data in a few clicks, then visualize and create interactive dashboards with a few more.

Different Types Of Payment Cards

The Credit Card (Shopping): The purpose o this card is to buy any item withing the limit prescribed by banks to cardholder. These cards can have both Magnetic stripe and Chip cards. 
Now a days all banks are issuing credit cards with CHIP and PIN. After entering the PIN by cardholder, then transaction starts for further processing.

The debit (ATM, Cash) card is a relatively new method of payment. It is different from a credit card because the debit cardholder pays with the money available in their bank account, which is debited immediately in real time. A debit card seems to be more dangerous compared to a credit card because the debit card is directly linked to the bank checking account and usually allows ATM cash withdrawals.

On the other hand, it is more protected by the required two-factor authentication (PIN number plus card itself). The real dangerous element of many branded debit cards is that they can be processed as credit cards, without entering the PIN.

The Gift card

The Sqoop in Hadoop story to process structural data

Why Sqoop you need while working on Hadoop-The Sqoop and its primary reason is to import data from structural data sources such as Oracle/DB2 into HDFS(also called Hadoop file system).
To our readers, I have collected a good video from Edureka which helps you to understand the functionality of Sqoop.

The comparison between Sqoop and Flume

The Sqoop the word came from SQL+Hadoop Sqoop word came from SQL+HADOOP=SQOOP. And Sqoop is a data transfer tool. The main use of Sqoop is to import and export the large amount of data from RDBMS to HDFS and vice versa. List of basic Sqoop commands Codegen- It helps to generate code to interact with database records.Create-hive-table- It helps to Import a table definition into a hiveEval- It helps to evaluateSQL statement and display the resultsExport-It helps to export an HDFS directory into a database tableHelp- It helps to list the available commandsImport- It helps to import a table from a database to HDFSImport-all-tables- It helps to import tables …
