TCH2314. Being the Robot Overlord: Building Bots for Efficiency and Productivity

Robotic process automation (RPA) bots, custom apps, and digital plumbing are revolutionizing how work gets done in today’s economy. Many firms and their clients have embracing “best of breed” solutions and would like to automate the exchange of data between different business solutions using solutions like the Microsoft Power Platform (Power Automate, Power Apps, and Power BI), which already work with over 300 different platforms. While these technologies have already been adopted by many enterprises, their uses in small and mid-sized businesses are still emerging, and accounting professionals must understand the implications of their use on their internal control structure and situations where applying RPA is beneficial. Attend this session to learn the fundamentals of these innovative automation solutions and see how others are effectively using these solutions and watch a demonstration of an RPA being built in session.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify key terms associated with process automation technologies like robotic process automation, digital plumbing, pro-code, low-code/no-code, and enterprise architecture
  • Differentiate between digital plumbing solutions, application program interfaces (APIs), and robotic process automation
  • Formulate a simple RPA
