Automation Anywhere

Automation anywhere is well suited in most rule-based processes. It can manage high-volume transactions with accuracy and scale up quickly. It is very flexible in terms of integration and implementation. The bots can be scheduled, monitored and performance can be reported on a regular basis. It works well with most enterprise solutions.

Microsoft Power Automate

Well Suited - Collecting data and organizing it.- Eliminate a lot of admin work.- Send auto-response emails to customers/users.- Notify relevant users when the data is updated.- Creating business process flows. Less Appropriate - If creating a flow to create a pdf file that combines all the attachments into one pdf file. - Flow will fail sometimes if the flow is too long and complex and if the flow connections are changed from one user to another.

Pros

Automation Anywhere

  • Now I easily generate the invoices and quotation generation is an easy task now. Previously it was very time consuming as we have to drag the data from the excel sheets.
  • I will praise its integration with other software that has facilitated us to make amendments in the data across those platforms.
  • Its interface is very easy and user friendly.
Brandon Young | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft Power Automate

  • "When an item is changed in a SharePoint list, do ____" - very easy to trigger massive flows of data based upon a one-field change on a SharePoint list.
  • Being able to manually trigger from a Microsoft PowerApp button press to perform actions.
  • Scheduled tasks - once a day, get every record in (LIST) with (Filters) and do (Stuff) to them.

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.

Microsoft Power Automate

  • I think general training could be improved. I'm sure there are many more uses than the simple automation tasks I was using Power Automate for, but I didn't have the time or bandwidth to dig through Microsoft's documentation on the tool.

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.

For most tasks WinAutomation is great and easy to use. You just set up tasks on a step by step basis and you can even tell the program what to do when there is an error (such as continue with job). Sometimes with complicated web extraction jobs it would be good to be able to easily extract data from the web page source.

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.

So Microsoft Flow support for its general troubleshooting or correcting issues is excellent. But to my knowledge, Microsoft Flow itself does not have service providers, even though they offer templates on their online app. I have found myself many times trying to complete individual actions that have no known template or even forum example. Every business is unique, and Microsoft does an excellent job of providing versatile yet straightforward systems. Microsoft Flow is definitely on the more advanced side of things. Having support or being able to purchase superior service (on building personalized flows) would be great.

Alternatives Considered

Automation Anywhere

In terms of costing, Uipath is more cost effective. Uipath doesn't support Unicode based websites but Automation Anywhere can help on this front. The user interface of Uipath is more user-friendly and attractive over Automation Anywhere. AA has a stronger network of resellers as compared to Uipath so you may be getting pushed for it and it's advisable to make decisions based on your own specific requirements.

Microsoft Power Automate is the first flow-based service that I have used, and I loved its convenience. It does take some time to learn and a lot of research. I recommend that you first plan out how you imagine that the flow should work and change things around as you start creating the flows.

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

Microsoft Power Automate

  • Power Automate has allowed us to create applications or customer interfaces we would not have been able to if we weren't able to move data around like we can with Power Automate
  • Power Automate helped us connect 3rd party systems that previously had no connection by passing data between different channels. This reduces license counts.
