Robotic process automation (RPA)

Definition

RPA, or Robotic Process Automation is using a piece of trained software or ‘bot’ to perform a high-volume, repetitive digital task that would otherwise need to be performed by a human. Tasks can range from data entry and file validation to generating reports and invoices or moving and reformatting information between two different systems. All you need is to define the rules of the job in question and to have a clear set of data for training the bot on how to follow the rules.
