Likelihood to Recommend

Automation Anywhere

[Automation Anywhere] is
independent of any business size, but mostly it will benefit large setups. So I
will recommend you its usage. It will enhance your productivity and let you
improve the management of tasks. It is one of the most effective RPA in the
market.

IBM Robotic Process Automation

IBM Robotic Process Automation is well suited to connect with other technologies and databases - handles the browser and Microsoft Office very well, reading text files, reading web and applications selectors, has many commands to execute rules, build a great chatbot, create and run regular expressions, among others. IBM Robotic Process Automation is less appropriate to proccess audios, images with low resolution and built charts and handle exceptions.

Pros

Automation Anywhere

  • Exception handling is pretty decent. WE don't have to worry about process being stuck as it moves to the next iteration on its own.
  • Automation is easier to achieve as it doesn't require high coding skills or designing a specific framework.
  • It can achieve PDF editing and automation, which in our case of policy documents has been valuable.

  • The tool is very simple to learn.
  • Have courses for partners who help in developing skills with the tool.
  • It has more than 500 types of tasks available for use.

Cons

Automation Anywhere

  • Automation Anywhere doesn't come with easy installation, We need to install Java, IDEs and Databases in an orderly fashion which we are not able to do.
  • Automation Anywhere has no workflow design which is not making us to understand the process.
  • Automation Anywhere has no fit to size object cloning.

IBM Robotic Process Automation

  • IBM RPA could have commands to create and process charts.
  • IBM RPA could have more commands to process audios and videos, especially to detect the times when certain words appear.
  • The launcher could show the chatbots that are developed.
  • It could have more commands to process image details such as colors and pixels, among others.
  • Add OCR with greater precision, especially for image reading.
  • The interface to develop workflows could also improve.

On more complex use cases, Automation Anywhere requires technical background like knowledge on network protocols and database language on task creation, and even people with technical background might have some trouble in the beginning because of the product particularities on how variable manipulation works, or how to get the object cloning (a more resilient screen manipulation command) to work as intended.The scheduling of tasks on the Control Room and the autologin feature isn't intuitive as they should, so much of this works requires documentation analysis to get it done on the first time.

The feature set is very rich, and the user interface is intuitive. There is a steep learning curve for all of the potential actions that a developer can use in a bot, but this is the tradeoff for having the feature set out-of-the-box

Automation Anywhere is a great tool for a low cost, fairly easily scalable, and quickly learned. The company is growing by leaps and bounds and continually pushing the automation boundaries. The problem with fast expansion is that sometimes you can grow more quickly than you can appropriately support your products. While Automation Anywhere has an excellent support structure in place, every company and situation is different, and they often struggle with why problems arise in the system and how to fix them.

We had quite a few queries and doubts, so we reached out to the IBM Robotic Process Automation support team, but the help we got was nothing. Then we even reached out in the group discussions, where we sought out to ask few technical-related questions, but we received no help. Moreover, we even tried figuring out things on our own, using programming. It would have been really great if we receive a participation certificate from IBM for all the effort we put into learning and competing against the teams worldwide.

Alternatives Considered

Automation Anywhere

Other than Automaton Anywhere I have also used UiPath. What I like about Automation Anywhere is the object cloning and the way you can move the mouse and either go to a particular point or go to an element. That's very easy and intuitive in Automation Anywhere. It gets the job done in terms of getting the data out of the pages. Although I have other tools, I still have this habit of going through the clicks. If you're going through the clicks, Automation Anywhere is the best.

The tool works very well and very fast when it comes to extracting structured data from the web and filling spreadsheets in excel. More than 500 possible tasks help automate any mapped process.

Return on Investment

Automation Anywhere

  • Our overall business has saved numerous hours of work where individuals were freed up to perform higher level thinking tasks.
  • Following a necessary reduction in workforce that was not driven by RPA, we were able to automate processes that kept the remaining workload from overwhelming the remaining workforce.
  • The use of robotics process automation has inspired many workers to come up with different approaches to problems including both automation and analytics.
Brady Rothrock CPA, CFE, ACDA, MS-BIA | TrustRadius Reviewer

IBM Robotic Process Automation

  • The cost of implementation and maintenance are low.
  • We are able to sell RPA solutions to other companies if we wish.
  • Robots are easy to implement and can run longer than a human, with a lower error rate.
