Accelerated Automation Development

Automatic creation of fully functional automation workflows

AI or Artificial Intelligence for RPA and Process Discovery

Process Discovery and RPA use AI and machine learning to collect data and identify patterns in how end-users perform processes within business applications.

Attended Automation

Similar to Robotic Desktop Automation, Attended Automation usually works together with the human workforce

Automated Business Process Discovery (ABPD)

An emerging field that discovers business processes based on examining the electronic footprints left by users

BPM or Business Process Management

BPM is a set of automated tools for designing, executing, and developing a company’s projects and goals. BPM is usually used to support and changed the entire life cycle of a company.

Business Process

A business process is an activity or set of activities that can accomplish a specific organizational or departmental goal 

Business Process Automation (BPA)

Business process automation, also known as business automation or digital transformation, is the technology-enabled automation of complex business processes

Business Process Modeling

Also called process modeling, it is the analytical representation or illustration of an organization’s business processes

Center of Excellence (CoE)

A Center of Excellence is the key governing body within an enterprise that sets up, monitors and measures the success of automation implementation

Cognitive Computing (CC)

Cognitive computing describes technology platforms that are based on the scientific disciplines of artificial intelligence and signal processing

Continuous Process Optimization (CPO)

The ongoing learning and recommendation of new process pathways and opportunities to improve RPA performance

Digital worker

Also known as a virtual worker is an automated team member, or bot, trained to carry out a business process

Enterprise Robotic Process Automation (RPA)

A technology that is used at huge enterprise levels. Moreover, this type of RPA is easy to manage, is scalable and can be maintained with less effort

Few Shot Detection

Few-shot detection allows high speed recognition of image content without seeing the huge number of training images which would usually be associated with standard convolutional neural networks. Few-shot detection with Process Discovery lets the platform adapt and integrate multiple new, tailor-made or updated software.

Hybrid automation

Hybrid automation is the passing of tasks back and forth between human and virtual workforces

Intelligent digital worker

An autonomous digital worker capable of making independent decisions based on Artificial Intelligence (AI) data

Intelligent Process Automation (IPA)

Smart automation solutions such as chatbots, computer vision and machine learning

Machine learning (ML)

Machine Learning is the scientific study of algorithms and statistical models that computer systems use to perform a specific task effectively relying on patterns and inference. It can be used to identify patterns and make predictions about process outcomes, enabling RPA to prioritize tasks

OCR or Optical Character Recognition

OCR is a technology that recognizes text within a digital image

Process Discovery

Integrated into RPA, Process Discovery (also called Business Process Discovery) is a combination of technologies used to define, map and analyze existing business processes. It identifies and visualizes business tasks and processes suitable for automation and automates these workflows. Along with business process modeling, it is critical for business process management (BPM)

Process Discovery Robots

Bots which sit silently on machines, collecting data on how business applications are utilized to perform daily tasks

Process Visibility

A map of processes showing the most efficient process paths and RPA opportunities which may have been overlooked

Robotic desktop automation

Similar to Attended Automation, this type of RPA usually works with the human workforce

Robotic Process Automation (RPA)

RPA is an application of technology, governed by business logic and structured inputs, aimed at automating repeatable business processes.

Software robot

A software application found on a computer or computer system that aims to replace or support a human worker with automation. Examples of these are found in attended automation and hybrid automation solutions.

Unattended automation

Complete automation of high-volume activities and processes. Unattended robotic process automation does not require human intervention.

Virtual worker

Also known as a digital worker is an automated team member, or bot, trained to carry out a business process

Visual Recognition

Consists of image recognition (IMR) and optical character recognition (OCR) technologies which enable robots to see the screen and interact with an application
