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

Top 20 ultimate ETL Questions really good for interviews

How to print/display the first line of a file?  there are many ways to do this. However the easiest way to display the first line of a file is using the [head] command.  $> head -1 file. Txt no prize in guessing that if you specify [head -2] then it would print first 2 records of the file.  another way can be by using [sed] command. [sed] is a very powerful text editor which can be used for various text manipulation purposes like this.  $> sed '2,$ d' file. Txt how does the above command work?  The 'd' parameter basically tells [sed] to delete all the records from display from line 2 to last line of the file (last line is represented by $ symbol). Of course it does not actually delete those lines from the file, it just does not display those lines in standard output screen. So you only see the remaining line which is the 1st line.  how to print/display the last line of a file?  the easiest way is to use the [tail] command.  $> tail -1 file. Txt if you want to do it using…

The unique helpful SAN architecture simplified one

Storage Area Networks (SANs)

A SAN is connected behind the servers. SANs provide block-level access to shared data storage. Block level access refers to the specific blocks of data on a storage device as opposed to file level access. One file will contain several blocks. 

SANs provide high availability and robust business continuity for critical data environments. SANs are typically switched fabric architectures using Fibre Channel (FC) for connectivity. The term switched fabric refers to each storage unit being connected to each server via multiple SAN switches also called SAN directors which provide redundancy within the paths to the storage units. This provides additional paths for communications and eliminates one central switch as a single point of failure.Ethernet has many advantages similar to Fibre Channel for supporting SANs. Some of these include high speed, support of a switched fabric topology, widespread interoperability, and a large set of management tools. In a storage ne…

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.

We’ve done years of research to build a system that supports people’s natural  ability  to  think visually. Shift fluidly between views, following your natural train of thought. You’re not stuck in wizards or bogged down writing scripts. You just create beautiful, rich data visualizations.  It's so easy to use that any Excel user can learn it. Get more results for less effort. And it’s 10 –100x faster than existing solutions.
