With cognitive technology and automation crossing the boundaries of the world of manufacturing and entering the office space, it becomes inevitable for the company leaders to have knowledge of the different terminologies. Even though many terms have been used for robotic applications build under the RPA industry, it does not mean the same when you bring them over to the office setting.

In this post we offer you a comprehensive guide for definitions on RPA, which will help you grow from a RPA beginner and understand how this technology adds value to your company.

Robotic Process Automation Definitions
  • Artificial Intelligence: A technology which learns and responds to stimulation just like humans do with right judgement and understanding of the scenarios.
  • Attended RPA: In case of attended RPA, decision making can only be done based on user inputs. Such kind of software robots are placed at the workstation of the employee and it gets triggered under two circumstances. One through user commands and second in situations where robots required input from the users. Here the access to such workstation remains limited to specific number of employees.
  • Enterprise RPA: RPA scenario is all about optimizing and automating RPA robots apart from developing them. This also includes how the robots will be deployed keeping the teams in mind using a flexible process flow.
  • Machine learning: This is a process which allows AI and software robots to grasp new processes with the help of pattern recognition rather than programming them precisely based on individual situations.
  • Natural language processing: This is actually a part of artificial intelligence which tries to understand and mimic human languages in the most natural manner.
  • Robotic process automation: RPA is a set of software robots which are used to optimize business processes by mimicking and integrating human activities. RPA performs a number of tasks like running applications, capturing data, communicating with other systems and triggering responses as needed.
  • Orchestrator: With this you can manage, schedule and monitor all the robots from a single secured place. With this it becomes possible for the companies to monitor and audit user activities and robots, along with the task of deploying and scaling RPA solutions.
  • RPA platform: This is flexible, powerful and efficient automation software which can be used by enterprises to automate important tasks that are repetitive in nature. This software comes with the development tool named Studio, the web based central remote system named Orchestrator and Robots which work on to automate the processes.
  • Unattented RPA: These are software robots which need no human interference to carry out actions when triggered. With this tool you can achieve round the clock automation as it works continuously by carrying out work in batches.
