Automation Anywhere is an RPA (Robotic Process Automation) tool for creating a virtual workforce of software bots that optimizes and lowers the costs of end-to-end business processes in an enterprise.

In this instructor-led, live training, participants will learn how RPA works, as they step through the deployment of an Automation Anywhere sample system. Case studies will be examined and comparisons made between Automation Anywhere and other RPA systems to allow participants to evaluate their choice of tool relative to the organizational problem they wish to solve with RPA.

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Understand how RPA works and where Automation Anywhere fits into the Business Process Automation big picture.
  • Use Automation Anywhere to create software bots that handle tasks such as Excel computations, email responses, and database manipulations.
  • Analyze existing business processes and develop an RPA plan for enhancing the efficiency of a workflow.
  • Lower operating costs and reduce errors through automation.
  • Diagnose and debug problems during the development and deployment of Automation Anywhere software bots.
  • Communicate effectively with management and staff about the role and expectation of software bots within the organization.

Format of the course

  • Part lecture, part discussion, exercises and heavy hands-on practice
