UiPath is a Robotic Process Automation tool that is used for Windows desktop automation. It is used to automate repetitive tasks with the help of drag and drop functionality and eliminates human intervention.
RPA can be used in both back office and front office that require human intervention. Some common RPA examples and use cases we encounter are automation of data entry, data extraction, and invoice processing.
The UiPath architecture consists of the following three components:
UiPath Studio: An advanced automation tool enables the process-modeling environment to create process automation in a visual manner through recorders.
The UiPath Studio includes two parts, one is processed designer, where the bot is built and another one is the execution part where the bot is put into work and run the automation.
As the studio enables automation using the point & click and drag & drop feature as well as workflow foundation technology, the process designers can use this tool without any programming knowledge.
UiPath Robot: A digital worker that executes the processes created in the Studio as a human would. It can work with or without human supervision and in all types of environments.
With the influence of advanced computer processing, it accelerates accurate automation for SAP, Citrix, and Mainframe processes.
UiPath Orchestrator: A management console that licenses the configuration as well as the deployment of the UiPath RPA platform.
This web application enables the user to adopt, schedule, manage and supervise software robots and their processes whilst business exception handling is existing through centralized work queues. Also, it offers deep workflow information and dominant analytics for better decision-making.
UiPath Studio Components:
The main components of UiPath are:
Ribbon Tab: This tab consists of three options (Start, Design and Execute) to provide features to save the project, open a recent project, design the automation workflow, debug the task, and execute the workflow.
Activity Pane: This pane consists of all the activities used to automate workflows which you can drag and drop into the workspace.
Properties Pane: This pane is used to configure all the activities. Almost all the activities have to be configured to design the scope, output variables, and other properties of activities.
Output Pane: As the name suggests, the output pane is used to check the output of the automation workflow executed.
Features of UiPath:
Hosting Options: It can be hosted in cloud environments or virtual terminals.
Application Compatibility: Offers a high range of applications to work with, which includes web and desktop applications.
Centralized repository: This feature helps for handling all the robots simultaneously by users.
Security: Offers auto-login features to run the bots.
Advanced screen scraping solution: Scraping solution that works with any application like,.Net, Java, Flash, PDF, Legacy, SAP, with absolute accuracy.
Reliable tool for modeling business processes: The UiPath studio offers
automation excellence with the help of model business processes.
Level of scalability and Robustness: Effective debugging and exception handling mechanisms.
