RPA Solution Architect's Handbook

By: Sachin Sahgal

Overview of this book

RPA solution architects play an important role in the automation journey and initiatives within the organization. However, the implementation process is quite complex and daunting at times. RPA Solution Architect’s Handbook is a playbook for solution architects looking to build well-designed and scalable RPA solutions. You’ll begin by understanding the different roles, responsibilities, and interactions between cross-functional teams. Then, you’ll learn about the pillars of a good design: stability, maintainability, scalability, and resilience, helping you develop a process design document, solution design document, SIT/UAT scripts, and wireframes. You’ll also learn how to design reusable components for faster, cheaper, and better RPA implementation, and design and develop best practices for module decoupling, handling garbage collection, and exception handling. At the end of the book, you’ll explore the concepts of privacy, security, reporting automated processes, analytics, and taking preventive action to keep the bots healthy. By the end of this book, you’ll be well equipped to undertake a complete RPA process from design to implementation efficiently.

Putting your findings to the test means taking what you’ve learned and verifying its accuracy through experimentation or real-world application. This step is essential because it helps you move from simply having the required knowledge to understanding how that knowledge is applied in practice. Here are a few reasons why putting your findings to the test is so important:
