What is UiPath Automation Platform?

UiPath's hyperautomation platform combines a Robotic Process Automation (RPA) solution with capabilities to enable organizations to scale digital business operations at speed, automating millions of repetitive, mind-numbing tasks for businesses and government organizations all over the world.

The UiPath Automation Platform enables users to discover opportunities for process improvement by mining communications taking place throughout the business, and through mapping out how employees work, while mining and monitoring every business conversation. This process enables users to capture and manage automation ideas and process improvements in one place, prioritized by impact and ROI .

All created integrations and automations are centrally managed through the UiPath Automation Platform. Users can continuously test and monitor automations and the applications they rely on with the platform's built-in testing.

Through gaining a better understanding of businesses processes, the platform then enables users to

  • Build business apps and automations with low-code, visual tools
  • Combine RPA and API integration for speed and scale across the widest range of systems
  • Remove work from paperwork with intelligent document processing
  • Incorporate AI and machine learning (ML) models into automations
  • Get various kinds of robots to do all kinds of work—from ready-to-go SaaS robots to robots that work alongside their people on everyday tasks
  • Create smarter decision-making and collaboration between people and digital workers


The SaaS option for deploying UiPath's Automation Platform, Automation Cloud delivers the full UiPath Platform—including SaaS robots and self-hosted robots—in under a minute from any of six regions around the world. It is browser-based. Alternatively, the Automation Suite version is containerized with Kubernetes integrated, installed in cloud, in on-prem Linux VMs, or on bare metal servers as desired, and offers portal access to all services and integrations.

  • UiPath provides free trial version of both Community and Enterprise edition. UiPath provides free tutorials and documentations
  • UiPath provides a strong, active and very helpful official community platform for clarifying doubts, sharing issues etc and has assigned an official team for providing support for the community users through this platform.
  • UiPath is an easy to learn and use tool with a great user interface.
  • Unlike other leading RPA tools UiPath provides a great user interface so that a person with minimum technical knowledge can understand the flow
  • UiPath provides large number of activities which we can reuse as per our need just by changing the properties and parameters
  • It provides the flexibility to create custom activities as per users need.
  • UiPath provides the flexibility to use unattended robot without need of Orchestrator.
  • UiPath orchestrator component is a very powerful tool which if utilized effectively can make the robot management and monitoring very easy.
  • Sometimes it is difficult to find the objects locators using UiPath especially on Legacy Platforms.
  • The licencing cost per user is higher when compared to other RPA tools available in market.
  • Non availability of maximize option in Property edit box, argument value edit box is another flaw.

  • The implementation was easy and it offers a great community and customer service, it is a good product to work with and design a solution quickly, I liked the technologies that this tool offers, it greatly optimizes the way of working.
  • Makes it easy to develop and automate some heavy and repetitive processes.
  • It seems to me that the only negative is the license, which is a bit expensive, I hope that one day the prices will drop, although it is still worth it.

  • The data scraping is precise and extracts data perfectly. We can easily format the data based on our requirements using Excel Automation.
  • UiPathGo gives many customized activities such as chatbots and vision automation which helps in integrating applications with UiPath. No other tool is providing such facilities.
  • The recording performance is marvelous. Particularly the desktop recording and web recording both work really well.
  • It is difficult to extract data from Iframes, but it is still possible.
  • It would be good to provide a Ubuntu version of UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform.

  • Excellent low code environment, easy for beginners to pick up as well as experts in the field. Very intuitive and due to UiPath Studio being an application rather than a web-app, it is much quicker and more stable than other low code tools such as Oracle Integration Cloud.
  • Brilliant online learning through UiPath academy, perfect for people who are new to either UiPath or RPA in general. Easy to listen to and very informative. Doesn't take ages to get through or to understand either.
  • UiPath Go and third-party support help massively when creating automations as it is likely someone has done something similar already. So given that the automation is open-source, it is very easy to get going.
  • Easy to use orchestrator allows for deploying robots with minimal stress, switching from DEV to PROD environments is very simple.
  • Selecting variables for functions can be tricky for novices as there are no "recommended" variables and some are badly named and require googling, memorizing, and wasting time.
  • It is expensive and for low-level automations there are cheaper or free alternatives.
  • Adding extensions can cause issues, some do not install properly and sometimes pre-requisites are not listed.

  • If there is a need to share data mutually with other platforms then UiPath is the best tool. It makes me much [more] confident by giving me a full-fledged authority on data [...] for automating even complex or hard processes.
  • The best thing about it is that it is very much user-friendly. Moreover, it can be easily adopted.
  • This is the most reliable tool for making robots. This is indeed the best ever tool for automating multiple processes as well as plugins.
  • This is the most user-friendly tool. The only drawback is that people that are having less knowledge about programming, have to face difficulty in its use. Due [to] which they have to learn complete knowledge in order to have complete command of it.
  • Otherwise I do not have any complaint against this RPA.
