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.

Extracurricular Activities

In the previous chapter, we discussed the case study of a bank client and focused on building an imaginary story to put our learning into perspective. This chapter will continue to talk about the SA and its roles and responsibilities. As we discussed in the first chapter, the role of an SA is so vast and open-ended that it is tough to list all the tasks and activities that an SA does. That is why, in this chapter, I’ll introduce you to some of the extracurricular activities that an SA ends up doing that are considered an account- or practice-level contribution. These activities are not project-based but are more of an SA’s contribution towards the overall growth of the account or practice.

The agenda of this chapter will cover the following points:

  • Contribution to presales activities
  • Attending Orals and client presentations
  • Building talent pools
  • Coaching and mentoring
  • The Center Of Excellence
