If your software is in-house or a little less common then the RPA tools are designed to interact robustly and resiliently with as many applications as possible. The caution with a specialist or uncommon software is you will have to bear the cost of being first to figure out how to train the robot.

Intelligent Automation

The hype surrounding Intelligent automation is almost as complicated as the technology itself and it is important to remember there is a spectrum of Automation complexity. It starts with Macros and Scripts, RPA, and moves through Process Orchestration, Intelligent Automation and ends with Autonomous Intelligence.

Where which and how much of this spectrum is applied to your business is important to understand in rolling it out to your organization as well as the order in which it is executed. Where do I start, where is the best ROI, do I need a little or a lot. These are all questions that need to be answered before a laptop is fired up and money is spent.
