Automatic first, connect everything, intelligent evolution.
It was learned that “Cloud Expansion Technology” held the “Cloud Expansion RPA Evolution Conference” yesterday, and officially announced the launch of the enterprise-level RPA platform “Tianyi Intelligent RPA” 2020 version. In addition to the new products, Yunzhuang Technology also released the “Digital Employees” all-in-one machine and the “Artisan RPA White Paper” and introduced the latest “Process Automation Discovery” products.
There were many reports on cloud expansion. Founded in 2017, Yunsheng Technology RPA is an enterprise-level RPA platform independently developed by Yunsheng Technology. The platform architecture is divided into three parts: BotTime Studio, BotTime Console, and BotTime Robot.
Specifically, the three-part implementation is as follows:
Heavenly Editor: For robotic process design. At present, the editor of the day has been fully graphically edited, and the user can design the workflow through the drag and drop method.
It is worth mentioning that the cross-platform recorder is built into the editor of the day, covering the mobile, pc, and website. The new product is based on the underlying automation technology of the Windows system and the most advanced computer vision technology. It can realize process recording and automatic execution for anyone manipulating system interfaces, including remote virtual desktops and even mobile terminals. In contrast, the current process that most RPA products can complete is mainly limited to the PC end.
Skysmith Console: Used to manage, deploy, and supervise robots, and comprehensively schedule and monitor automated processes to visualize robot productivity performance. At present, Skyscraper console can realize cloud-level elastic scaling and manage robots running on iOS, Android, Windows and other operating systems. In addition, the Heavenly Console also supports permissions and process version management.
Heavenly Robot: Perform automated processes to assist the work of human employees. Tianjian Intelligent RPA platform provides two robotic forms: manned (user robot) and unattended (shared robot). The robot supports high-density operation mode, and a single machine can run up to one at the same time.32 robots do not interfere with each other.
Enterprise-level deployment: high availability + ease of deployment
It has been reported that RPA (Robot Process Automation) is a small outlet for this year’s domestic venture capital circle. Its product form is usually expressed as a set of automation software, deployed on the local or cloud, able to imitate the behavior of human employees, complete identification, Get, click and other actions to complete the work of strong rules and high repeatability.
From the perspective of product architecture, RPA vendors usually start from the development of instrumental products, that is, single robots. When entering the large-scale deployment phase of the enterprise, the RPA will involve the console and consider the issues of central scheduling and governance. Why did Yunhui Technology, which was not established for a long time, choose to deploy enterprise products at this stage?
Liu Chungang, founder and CEO of Yunsheng Technology, accepted an interview on this product release. He said that the cause of doing enterprise-level RPA products comes from the pain points found when serving customers. To truly make RPA products work properly in enterprises, they must meet the application needs of business and IT departments. To achieve this requirement, RPA products need to have two characteristics:
High ease of use and low learning costs. Everyone can get started, which allows business people who don’t understand IT technology to have good participation, enhance the acceptance of RPA in the enterprise, and the actual business change perception is getting stronger.
Easy deployment convenience. Currently, RPA is still a product for enterprise, and enterprises pay more attention to RPA security and convenience when deploying and delivering. In addition, scalability is also an important indicator of RPA products – this directly determines how far RPA can go in the enterprise and how intelligent it is.
The above two reasons are revealed: platform-level, enterprise-level RPA products are the future direction, so that RPA products will accelerate to land and enter more enterprise scenarios.
Eco-construction and future layout
It is also a common goal of the current RPA industry to enter more internal corporate scenarios and improve the adaptability of robots. For this reason, building an RPA ecosystem is an important part. It has been reported that Yunsheng Technology is positioned as “RPA Product Technology Provider”, providing basic RPA technology for partners in various industries, taking advantage of the accumulation of partners in the vertical industry for decades, grasping the pain of enterprise business and promoting RPA faster. The project landed.
Liu Chungang said that at the level of commercial landing, Yunsheng Technology has developed rapidly. The main customers are from energy, telecommunications, finance and other fields. This year, Yunsheng Technology has been in the north.Beijing, Xi’an, Nanjing, Suzhou, Hangzhou and Shenzhen set up branch offices to provide first-line support to partners and customers across the country. Overseas, Yunzhuang also set up an office in Tokyo, Japan, and has actually settled the case.
In terms of industry and technology ecology, Yunxuan Technology has established partnerships with dozens of industry and technology service providers in the industry. The partners are divided into three categories: industry partners, technology partners and eco-partners, and the established SaaS market can connect technology partners and enterprises – that is, the partners of Yunzeng can flexibly adopt Customized development of various functional modules on the platform provides customers with an end-to-end intelligent automation solution.
At the user’s ecological level, Yunsheng Technology launched the “Tianyi Academy”, “Tianjian Workshop” and “Tianjian Community” to invest in the RPA full-chain developer ecosystem. Online, Yunzhuang has also cooperated with three universities in Xi’an to establish an RPA robot lab and a dual-innovation platform for students.
In the press conference, Yunxuan Technology also demonstrated the latest “Process Automated Discovery Solution”, which is an important step for cloud expansion to enhance the intelligence of robots. Liu Chungang said that the previous RPA products from the early consultation to the final landing, 60% of the time spent on process discovery and optimization, the overall delivery and implementation is heavier. The process automation discovery solution enables robots to automatically discover the optimizable processes in the enterprise by applying machine learning technology, helping decision makers to find links that can reduce costs and increase efficiency.
In the near future, discussions on the status of RPA in the enterprise service ecosystem have emerged one after another. It has been suggested that technologies such as BPM also intersect with RPA, and there are many places where SaaS and RPA can be combined, which makes integration automation a problem that RPA companies need to consider. In this regard, Liu Chungang said that Yunsheng Technology continues to focus on the combination of industry SaaS and RPA, but whether it is integrated depends on how RPA and SaaS see their boundaries.
He also added that the goal of Yunsheng Technology is to become a platform-based RPA, supplemented by an open AI market, such as NLP, OCR and other mature AI technologies, cloud expansion adopts a cooperative approach; and improve the intelligence of the robot process engine. The core AI technology is the focus of Yunsheng Technology’s self-study. Ultimately, the ideal form of RPA development should be to become a PaaS platform, and industry-level SaaS partners can leverage RPA resources and platforms to develop solutions for the industry.
