Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and Alteryx’s Analytic Process Automation (APA) are amazing platforms for companies looking to automate manual, risky, and time-consuming processes. Our clients have begun to ask, “Which of these platforms should we invest in?” While RPA and APA (Alteryx) have some similarities, they solve different automation challenges.
During this webinar, we’ll discuss the similarities, differences, strengths, and weaknesses of RPA and Alteryx (APA). We’ll show live examples of how the platforms work together to create automated solutions that save companies hundreds of hours, reduce errors, and help document business processes.
RPA does a fantastic job of automating, scheduling, and orchestrating manual keyboard and mouse processes. RPA can do things like:
- Navigate to websites
- Run reports (many times to Excel)
- Save, move, and copy files
- Run scripts, programs, stored procedures
- Fill out online forms
- Check for events and notify users via email
Alteryx/APA focuses more on automating data-oriented tasks. APA will:
- Pull data from databases, files, and APIs
- Prepare, cleanse, and combine data sets
- Perform complex forecasting, geospatial, and predictive analytics
- Send data to files, databases, APIs, BI/reporting/dashboard tools, and/or to people via email
