Organisations often have multiple systems that do not talk to each other, which creates a disconnect between legacy and modern applications and services. Customers are looking to optimise processes to deliver faster and higher-value results. Therefore, Microsoft has added RPA to Microsoft Power Automate, delivering an end-to-end automation solution that spans AI, APIs, and UI on the Microsoft Power Platform.
Intelligent automation, like RPA (robotic process automation) in Power Automate, is a key technology to create automation services that need integration and management, bringing together modern and legacy systems. With RPA, organisations will improve efficiency and productivity in many ways, allowing their teams to be released from mundane, time-consuming, repetitive tasks so that they can focus on higher-value work.
To realise the promise of automation, organisations must:
With RPA, you can automate processes and exchange data with legacy, on-premises software that is still essential in many enterprises. This UI-based approach turns manual tasks into automated workflows by recording and playing back human driven interaction with software systems that do not support API-based automation.
Free up employees’ time to focus on higher–value work. Recent research suggests that the average amount of avoidable rework in accounting departments can take up to 30% of a full-time employee’s time. If fully implemented, however, RPA saves upward of 25,000 hours per year and 878,000 USD.
Create automated workflows with step-by-step guidance and an intuitive, no-code interface anyone can use, regardless of their technical expertise.
Integrate with other Microsoft products, link new and legacy systems while also taking advantage of partner connectors—or create your own.
Roll out scalable changes quickly while meeting all IT security requirements—since Power Automate has Microsoft security technology built in.
