Extensive coding requirements are driving implementation costs through the roof. Coding plagues the automation industry. Not only does it increase development costs but also exponentially increases the time to implement automation. The result: the pipedream of finding ROI gold gets more elusive than ever.
RPA has democratized UI to a point where a business analyst or a developer can build and automate the process using low code platforms. While most simple processes can be built using intuitive interfaces, drag and drop menus, for those instances when one might need to code to build a complex process -one that includes numerous rules, decision making engines or nested iterations, using a programming language agnostic platform ups the flexibility and productivity of development teams to a whole new level.
Today RPA systems come with smart UIs supported by comprehensive component libraries and prefabricated process folders, almost eliminating the need to code and build from scratch. This then clears one of the biggest hurdles that RPA users face today in realizing ROI.
