Business process automation in the cloud

The ubiquity of cloud computing is shifting the deployment of Business Process Management Systems (BPMS) from traditional on-premise models to the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) paradigm, thus aiming to deliver Business Process Automation as a Service (BPAaaS) to organisations in the cloud. However, traditional BPMS are designed to serve a single organisation on premise but not for multiple organisations in a cloud environment. To support provision of BPAaaS, it is necessary to establish the design of a new paradigm to address the …

Intelligent and automated exception handling strategies for robotic process automation

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is a relatively new technology that uses small computer programs called bots to mimic the manual path taken by a human through a range of computer applications when performing certain tasks in a business process.The sequence of tasks that is being mimicked by bots, referred to as a 'bot-flow', typically comprises various computer-human interactions (such as mouse clicks and keyboard strokes) that need to be executed in a particular order to accomplish the tasks. Before a …

Process automation in the cloud

Process automation refers to digital technology-enabled automation of complex business processes in modern organisations. Business Process Management Systems (BPMS) are dedicated to providing support to process automation. Thus they play a key role in today's enterprise digital transformation and a myriad of BPMS exists.Cloud computing, as a major computing paradigm emerging over the last decade, has evolved into one of the most widely used computing resource platforms. It is shifting the deployment of BPMS from traditional on-premise models to the …

Robotic Process Automation: Research Opportunities

Recently, there has been a strong interest in industry in a specific area of automation Robotic Process Automation (RPA). This term can include robotics, software agents acting as human beings in system interactions, and process automation, workflow management systems or systems that are process-aware.RPA is a relatively new technology comprising of software agents called `bots' that mimic the manual path taken by a human through a range of computer applications when performing certain tasks in a business process. The tasks …

Discovering bot-flow for robotic process automation

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is a technology that use computer programs called “bots” to mimic the sequence of actions taken by a human through a series of computer-based applications in order to accomplish a particular task. The sequence of actions that bots mimic is referred to as ``bot-flow’‘. A ``bot-flow’’ is typically comprised of various computer-human interactions, such as keyboard strokes, mouse clicks, and launching an application.Currently, a design blueprint of a bot-flow is needed in order develop a bot. …
