To create an Robotic Process Automation (RPA) tool that made use of Open Source Technologies as much as possible (if not fully), so as to reduce the licensing costs incurred by the use of other RPA technologies
Create a Platform with two separate parts:
A backend that the robots can run on, and allow for the running of robots, as well as a Web Based interface that acted as a Front End for the users needing to run the robots.
A Robot platform, that allows for modules of common robot functions to be collated, as well as to ensure coding standards and versioning control of the code used to control robots
- MS SQL Server
- Entity Framework 6
The Solution saved the company million of Rands in licensing fees, it also ensured that the company became the owner of the infrastructure, and as such could make changes to how it looks and feels easily. This also allowed the company to be able to customize the tool to their specific needs, without having to pay for such customization. Furthermore, the company saved money on paying for support costs, since these were no longer required from the RPA tools that are licensed.
