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.

Exception handling

Exception handling is a crucial aspect of software development that ensures the uninterrupted execution of software programs. Exception handling is the process of identifying, managing, and responding to exceptions, errors, and other unexpected events that may occur during the execution of a software program.

When an exception is raised, it interrupts the normal flow of the program and must be handled properly to prevent the program from crashing or producing incorrect results. In this article, we will discuss the importance of exception handling in software development, the challenges faced due to not handling exceptions, how exception handling is used in RPA and automation, and the best practices for doing so.

Importance of exception handling

Exception handling is critical in software development because it allows programs to continue executing even when unexpected events occur. Without exception handling, programs would crash and produce incorrect results...
