How Oracle users can leverage RPA

Robotic process automation technologies have experienced tremendous growth in the last few years, and its adoption rates have skyrocketed across verticals. Now, executives from all business functions have started to take notice of the rapid impact in business outcomes that such tools can provide to their organizations and business units.

For Oracle users, RPA tools can deliver significant advantages in operational efficiency, data accuracy, application integration, and cloud adoption.

From simple desktop tasks to complex business processes, RPA can help organizations leverage existing investments to orchestrate human and robot interactions providing end-to-end visibility and error free transactions.

Leading RPA tools like UiPath, have a specific Oracle edition that works with Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC), it helps tame legacy complexity to obtain a friction-less business process automation by building, integrating, and engaging key business processes.

Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) offers organizations key features that include:

  • Structured and Unstructured process modeling: Structured and unstructured business process modeling for a wide array of use cases
  • Declarative Decision modeling: Allows end users to define and maintain their process decisions and rules using a declarative notation that uses Decision Tables that adhere to the DMN standard.
  • Iterative and agile Low Code development: Facilitates quick prototyping and requirements validation.
  • Multi-version process development. Support one or multiple versions of a process running at all times, suitable for advanced scenarios.

Following the creation of business process applications that allows mapping a process “as is”, which would include all necessary steps/tasks/activities and execution path combinations. Organizations will need to connect and integrate such processes with different systems of record using either available set of adapters and connectors from the OIC library or via RPA robots that can interact directly with target application user interfaces without APIs.

RPA technologies allows creating Robot-based transactions that replay the user interaction via the application user interface. Such automated transactions can be triggered at any step/activity of a business process, depending on the workflow mapped in early stages.

Workflows can be recorded and generated with the RPA designer tool. The bots get deployed to an orchestration environment where an administrator can set up the execution of the bots in automating the transactions. Robots can work in an unattended model where no manual trigger or intervention is needed, as they can all be invoked from business processes implemented on OIC, delivering an end-to-end automation to lay the foundation for a true digital workforce.

At the engagement stage, after the process application are built, and integration points have been automated, leaders can leverage OIC's WorkSpace, actionable emails, and other out of the box user interaction features to help provide insights into how your end-users, process owners, and administrators are interacting with the process applications.

Outside of OIC integration, organizations can leverage RPA to automate data extraction from core enterprise systems such as Oracle E-Business Suite to redistribute the data across other applications for business transactions. If IT security constraints like VPN and firewall configurations prevent direct access to databases (highly likely when having a hybrid cloud and on-premise install), publishing REST web services from an Oracle database using the Application Express tool can be an alternative method to bypass these issues.
