WEM APAC & AKABOT – Hyper automation/Modernization of any Business Process or application

RPA (Robotic Process Automation) presents a solution to employees and organizations interested in reclaiming productivity from automation of manual tasks. RPA is commonly referred to as “bots” since it involves the use of automated software robotics.

Over the past few years, thousands of bots have been developed and deployed to perform digital admin tasks that organizations and workers would want to avoid. On the other hand, no-code services provide similar solutions in that they allow the employees to avoid digital admin tasks such as repetitive data entry. However, they don’t require the company to integrate any software robotics. Instead, no-code seeks to replace the traditional process of developing software by empowering even non-tech professionals with the tools they need to quickly create robust software to handle their duties.
New Digitization Solutions - Low Code/ No Code Platforms

The current pandemic pushed millions of businesses around the world to cut back on daily operations and to offer remote working options for their workers with only the most essential players reporting to the office. While many companies were comfortable with the transition, manority weren’t ready for such a drastic change, as they didn’t have the necessary processes or systems in place to allow employees to work remotely. This disconnect called for urgent solutions to transform traditional work structures into digital-friendly processes and notably, nearly every company needed a platform on which workers would connect remotely. The demand for both front- and back-end developers shot through the roof. Soon it became clear that there weren’t enough developers to offset the demand, and to make matters worse, companies had to part with thousands or millions of dollars to hire such professionals due to their high demand. Organizations started to fully embrace alternative digitization solutions such as low code and no code.

RPA solutions which are hard coded for specific needs cannot keep pace with rapidly changing business requirements. Every business needed a way to adapt to changes quickly from a software perspective. Low code and no-code services allowed businesses to develop the software that they needed without incurring excessive costs hiring the necessary professionals. Companies that had ready RPA systems tapped into low code and no-code solutions to keep pace with the fast market changes and vice versa

Both RPA and no code solutions have advantages and disadvantages making them ideal for different kinds of workers and organizations. The question of whether a company should use RPA or low code or both is not straight forward. In a nutshell, RPA is perfect for any organizational setup where the tasks are simple and repetitive.Conversely, low code or no code services is perfect if the problems you need to address require new solutions, enterprise-wide business process automation, and third-party system integration. It should be noted that low code and no code can also be used to automate simple repetitive tasks in small organizations.

Hybrid Solution - RPA and No Code Platform

Despite these obvious use cases, hybrid solution whereby RPA is used to complement low code and no code is the most common. For instance, it’s quite difficult to come up with an RPA solution that automates tasks in an outdated legacy system. This is because it would require thorough knowledge of any legacy systems, a task that may be too expensive in a big organization.

With a low code or no code implementation, it’s easy to work with legacy systems especially if the older structure is well-documented. The hybrid approach ensures that RPA methodologies can be used to develop no-code solutions that integrate seamlessly with any existing frameworks. The hybrid method is excellent for companies that need business process automation and robustness. For instance, RPA could be used to filter a list consisting of thousands of millions or records. However, it may not be efficient or practical to use the same solution to integrate the shortlist into the existing system. For such tasks, low code and no code process automation may be a better option. Most companies that’ve been in operation for more than a few decades are better off with a hybrid approach.
