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.

Design Best Practices

A good design is critical for the success of software development projects. It helps to ensure that the software meets users’ needs, is reliable, maintainable, and scalable, and enables developers to work more effectively as a team. Good design ensures that the software meets its intended purpose and works as expected. It considers all aspects of the software, from user experience to performance, security, and scalability.

A well-designed software system is more likely to meet user needs and requirements, as well as reduce the risk of errors and bugs. Good design provides a common language for developers, stakeholders, and users. It helps developers to communicate more effectively with each other and with stakeholders by providing a shared understanding of the software system. This makes it easier to identify and resolve issues early on, saving time and resources in the long run.

Software systems are often complex and can be difficult to manage. A...
