What is Robotic Process Automation?
Robotic Process Automation is the technology that allows anyone today to configure computer software, or a “robot” to emulate and integrate the actions of a human interacting within digital systems to execute a business process. RPA robots utilize the user interface to capture data and manipulate applications just like humans do. They interpret, trigger responses and communicate with other systems in order to perform on a vast variety of repetitive tasks. Only substantially better: an RPA software robot never sleeps and makes zero mistakes.
The Step into Robotic Process Automation (RPA) course is intended to introduce RPA to students. The course assumes no prior knowledge of RPA. The course takes a use-case approach. It begins by defining a real-world, generic problem and how it's solved in a non-RPA environment. The course goes on to teach skills that enable the students to create a robot using free UiPath software (Academic Alliance Edition) to automate the solution. The course is aproximately 4-hours duration.
