It may sound mystical and magical, but RPA is quite simple. A piece of software running on a computer programmatically pushes the same buttons in the application’s user interface (UI) similar to how a human would. Possibly copying data from one app and pasting it into the UI in another. Or grabbing data, transforming or enriching it then pasting it back to augment business logic.
For example, reading data from a StrataFlows form and pushing it to an ERP system like SAP or Oracle. The RPA can watch for requests to reach a certain state and trigger logic to update the corresponding entry in the ERP system automatically in the background eliminating the need for a human to do this work. It can do it at a high volume by watching continuously in the background for the opportunity to do work for you.
This can all be done securely using a number of techniques. Ask us how.
