Cloud RPA: a better way

Start quickly, scale easily, and stay secure while accelerating automation ROI

What is cloud RPA?

Robotic process automation (RPA) has come a long way since its early days. Back then software robots were handling mostly repetitive, routine tasks across legacy systems that didn’t necessarily integrate with cloud solutions. Now, bots can do much more sophisticated work. They’ve learned to combine user interface (UI) emulation, API integration, and artificial intelligence (AI) to go after the sweeping, cross-enterprise workflows that create exponential value. At the same time, many—if not most—organizations have also adopted cloud-first strategies and are now looking to scale their digital solutions, including automation, as quickly and as cost-effectively as possible. And what better way to do that than to “add more SaaS”? In this case, RPA SaaS.

IT Central Station: Making the Move to Cloud-Based RPA: Key Considerations

Find out what it takes to successfully deploy robotic process automation (RPA) in the cloud.

Still not sure what to make of it? Perhaps you need hybrid or self-hosted automation instead?

We think cloud RPA truly is the better way for most customers, but if you’re not most customers, let’s talk about your self-hosted options. If your policy needs go beyond even our security and compliance and openness attestations, we’ve got the “cloud in a box” solution called Automation Suite for you to deploy and manage yourself. So, if you’ve built an organization dedicated to managing in the unique environment you find yourself in, then we always support that too.
