Robotic Process Automation (RPA) has been the hype of the market for the past few years with market leaders such as Blue Prism and Uipath taking up most of the headlines in the automation world.
This trend has certainly been embraced by the “high end of town”. Major banks and big miners have been utilising this technology to improve the efficiency of their operation as early as 2012. They have reaped the benefit of being innovative and adventurous.
For smaller organisations, 9 out of 10 automation programs failed to scale beyond the pilot stage. The ones that can scale often invested significant amount of money and resources upfront – this is not an option for many organisations.
Developer First or Business First?
Many RPA vendors have been marketing their tool as “drag and drop” and business can learn to build a bot “overnight” – this is unrealistic.
Having significant experience in deploying scaled automation solutions using Blue Prism, UiPath, Automation Anywhere and Power Automate over the past 8 years in APAC, and more recently Robocorp, we believe the automation program should focus on solving the business problem but automation tools should focus on developers’ needs first – controversial.
So how do we deliver business value in an automation program without blurring the line of business owner and developer?
Enters Robots-as-a-Service (RaaS).
Robots-as-a-Service (also known as, Automation-as-a-Service) refers to a service that focusses on automating your business processes without requiring a business user to “dub as a developer”.
Providers such as BLV Solutions offers a fully managed automation service from assisted discovery, development, to post-production service management at a fraction of the price that other automation vendors can provide.
With our Robots-as-a-Service platform, any authorised user can connect with the robot in any way – this is one of the key benefits of using an “As-A-Service” business model where the platform allows business processes and user services to be made available through a single click.
