How Universal RPA Design Standards Can Change the Future of Automation

Eliminate Proprietary Vendor Lock-In

Eliminate Proprietary Vendor Lock-In

With a set of universal, RPA Design Standards, each bot in your digital workforce wouldn't be tied to the proprietary process automation details that each RPA platform uses. Bots in one platform could be run in any other; just like a PDF can be made and opened anywhere.

Separate Design & Implementation

RPA Design Standards would empower the citizen developer. Business stakeholders could design the automation and hand it off for precise development because there would be no need to understand any particular platform's technical details.

With stalled automation pipelines eliminated and the entire RPA market at their disposal, organizations can get back to fulfilling their bottom line—maximizing the ROI of their automation initiatives and rapidly accelerating their digital transformations.

What Are Universal RPA Design Standards?

At the moment, all the tools along the automation value chain are speaking a different language without any translators. A bot designed in one platform can't be exported and run in another because each tool describes and specifies process automation details differently. The result is zero portability and interoperability that leads to stalled automation pipelines and the inability to scale.

RPA Design Standards are a universal, core structure for automation that would allow bots to be designed once and run in any RPA platform. This level of portability would unlock the entire RPA market. 

Why a Lack of RPA Design Standards Negatively Impacts RPA Programs

Without universal RPA design standards, automation teams will continue to struggle with stalled pipelines and vendor lock-in.

The lack of portability and interoperability that are by-products of no common automation format means RPA programs must continue the labor-intensive effort of transcribing captured processes into a target RPA tool.

An RPA ecosystem without portability also means that organizations can only switch RPA providers if they're willing to spend the time and money to rebuild their entire digital workforce from scratch - an endeavor so expensive that it's a non-starter.
