Blue Prism Intelligent RPA

Blue Prism Intelligent RPA is well suited for the processes which are rules-based in nature. This software works well with web based application integrations. It's very easy to capture the object details and code the workflow with ease. The record functionally will do the trick most of the time and will save a lot of effort in coding the workflow. Work needs to continue in the surface automation part. It works with surface automation but there are chances of failure sometimes and we feel like the control of automation is very fragile.

Selenium

Selenium is one of the few tools on the market that allows interaction with a browser that is open-source, so it would be really hard to fault/beat it. It's actually available to use in many languages (like Java, Javascript, Python, etc.), so it does cater to many out there. The use case is simple, but powerful, "to imitate a real user interacting with a webpage". This opens up so much in regards to Front end automation and will automate many of your test cases which you would normally manually perform, in a much slower and error-prone way. In addition, you could write scripts to act as tools, if say an API isn't exposed to you. For example, you could create scripts to register an account on a website with different randomised usernames each time. So not just limited to testing. The only downside is that Selenium could hit a scenario where it becomes stuck, then it will crash and require you to debug where it went wrong. But this is more down to the logic of the scripts rather than Selenium itself. You would need to know your product well to cater to these scenarios as Selenium won't handhold you to why things crash/fail.

Pros

Blue Prism Intelligent RPA

  • Control room - Finally a tool where you can schedule your process automation or run whenever it is needed
  • It is worth saying that you can easily re-engineering and thorough understanding and re-use those applications that are already built. We can save time especially when processes to automate are similar.

Selenium

  • It supports multiple coding languages like Java, Python, Ruby, C# etc.. to choose from.
  • There is a huge community of users and can get many answers on StackOverFlow.
  • It has lot of other plugins to make your tests even more efficient.

Cons

Blue Prism Intelligent RPA

  • Object handling can be improved more and instead of going through each and every object to find its functionality it is hard and only the experienced BP tool user can understand.
  • The identification of the elements can be improved much more with having useful details in place instead of only using the Indexes for the elements.
  • In the environment variables pane, they can add some grouping facility to divide the variables in the environment variables section.
  • Can improve the calculation stage for doing string operations using the VB commands instead of using code and inbuilt native functions to save time.

Selenium

  • Selenium is pretty user-friendly but sometimes tests tend to flake out. I'd say roughly one out of twenty tests yields a false positive.
  • Selenium software cannot read images. This is a minor negative because a free plug-in is available from alternate sources.
  • Slowness may be a minor factor with Selenium, though this is an issue with basically any testing software since waiting on a site to execute JavaScript requires the browser to wait for a particular action.

We love this product mainly because of its high customization abilities and the ease of use. Moreover, its free and can be learned easily through online communities and videos. The tests are more consistent and reliable as compared to Manual tests. It has enabled us to test a large number of features all in one go, which would have impossible through manual tests. The reports generated at the end of the tests are really helpful for the QA and the development teams to get a fair view of the application.

It's easy to handle and automate. Saves time and money in significant manner. Once a process is implemented, it performs the tasks with more than 95% accuracy so that's a big help. Costing is a bit high and object recognition work may need time to be hands on that's [the reason] this rating.

As I mentioned earlier, the reason I use Selenium is because there is a fairly widespread community of users, and user support services are at a good level. because the application is open source, it works on many platforms (Windows, Linux, IOS) without any problems. In addition, it gives us a lot of options for writing functional tests. For errors that we receive through the application, we can easily find the reasons for errors in the forums.

Support is good and now with time online support in other forums is becoming available as well. Blue Prism support in itself is also good. Documents and blogs can help to find the solution. Since it's relatively new, sometimes if I'm stuck it can take time to find the solution or connect to their team.

Selenium does not have technical support available easily. You have to go through forums to get the information you need. However, there are excellent forums out there that make it easy to troubleshoot. The open-source flexibility makes it difficult to have dedicated support.

We did everything we needed to use it.Now we can execute our tests on different operational systems and browsers running few tests simultaneously.We also implemented Appium framework to execute our tests on mobile devices, such as iPhones, iPads, Android phones and tablets.We use SauceLabs for our test execution and Jenkins for continuous integration.

Alternatives Considered

Blue Prism Intelligent RPA

Better User Interface.Better customer service.Easier to learn and use. But has greater risk compliances. Less preloaded automation. Less editing features and a big no while working on big projects. Fluidmesh is better in pricing and better management of multiple projects but I believe Blue Prism is perfect for beginners and small-scale companies.

Selenium

Sikuli is a GUI automation program that offers an alternative for web based (and any other engine) programs. Sikuli's native language is Python. However, users can customize the software with add-ons similar to Selenium add-ons. These add-ons extend the use of Sikuli to languages such as Java, JavaScript, many C based languages, etc.

Return on Investment

Blue Prism Intelligent RPA

  • For a level of medium projects, Blue Prism performs well, and the speed of execution is good. In our organization, we are applying for medium projects, where we can increase the workforce of our employees.
  • Blue Prism's Client Server Architecture is good, because we need such a feature to implement automation.
  • When it comes to pricing, I personally feel that it is costlier.

Selenium

  • There hasn’t been a downside to using it yet other than we’ve got to update the programs we create for each change.
  • This has saved us hundreds of hours of manpower by allowing our automation engineer to rapid fire tests.
  • We are able to screenshot and save entire sites before and after launch with a program the automation engineer created
  • We can compare large volumes of data against data in excel docs with a program created using Selenium
