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.

Alerts and notification

Alerts and notifications are critical components of any RPA system. They are used to inform stakeholders of important events or issues that require their attention. Here are some best practices to design an effective alert and notification system in RPA:

  • Define clear criteria: Before designing an alert and notification system, it’s important to define clear criteria for when alerts should be triggered. This can include specific events, thresholds, or errors that require attention. Defining clear criteria ensures that alerts are triggered only when necessary, and stakeholders are not overwhelmed with unnecessary notifications.
  • Establish a priority system: Not all alerts are created equal. Establishing a priority system for alerts ensures that stakeholders know which alerts are most important and require immediate attention. This can help to ensure that critical issues are addressed promptly and that stakeholders are not distracted by less urgent...
