Robotic Process Automation (RPA): A Practical Guide for Professionals and Business Managers


Technology continues to reshape our business environment at a rapid pace. The roles of Professionals and Business Managers are changing, and it is vital that you are well-equipped to support businesses.

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) eliminates the need to do menial tasks, allowing us to escape the ‘daily grind’ and develop higher value-add skills instead. The modern-day Professionals and Business Managers will have to embrace automation, but that will make their work more interesting.

More and more companies are relying on RPA tools such as UiPath to streamline their manual and time-consuming processes. RPA tools can automate processes in many different areas, and we can certainly benefit from RPA in capturing and transforming data, making rule-based decisions, and interacting between applications.

This hands-on workshop will help Professionals and Business Managers without coding and/or programming background develop the basic skills required to start automating processes using UiPath. The hands-on exercises will facilitate learning and allow you to directly apply your knowledge learned to the workplace.
