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.

Credentials or login credentials are nothing but another name for the same old login and password we have been using for ages. Credentials play a crucial role in RPA projects as they are used to authenticate bots and provide access to systems and applications. However, managing and securing credentials can be a challenging task, and a single mistake can lead to severe security breaches. Therefore, it is essential to follow best practices and use the right tools and technologies to protect sensitive information.

What makes bot login and application credential management so important? Let’s look at the reasons:

  • Security: Bots access sensitive information and systems, so it is essential to ensure that they have the right level of access and that their credentials are secure
  • Compliance: Many industries have regulatory requirements around access to sensitive data, and bot login and credential management can help organizations comply with these regulations...
