With every iteration of automation technology that hits the market, one thing is clear: We are not far from a future where the only limit to what you can automate will be within the limits of your own imagination. Appian strives to open doors to the art of the possible by putting every automation capability you need to tackle any use case into our unified low-code platform. And in Appian 22.2, the latest product release, we’re opening Windows, too.
Robotic process automation (RPA) is a technology used to automate manual, rule-based, repetitive tasks within your business processes. This can help free up human workers so they can focus more on the activities that require human logic, reasoning, and emotion. RPA can also be used as a quick and easy way to connect to legacy systems that don't use application programming interfaces (APIs).
Appian RPA 7.12 is now live to help you build and execute automation faster than ever. Here are some of the upgrades and improvements available in the new release.
Software-based automation is a relatively young concept that’s rapidly gaining popularity—as reflected by the veritable explosion of software as a service (SaaS) offerings in the last decade. Gartnre® estimates, “software as a service (SaaS) remains the largest market segment and is forecast to grow to $117.7 billion in 2021, application infrastructure services (PaaS) is anticipated to grow by a higher margin at 26.6%”.
Last month, we unveiled Appian 21.3 with new product enhancements that help customers develop apps and automations even faster. And now, we’re excited to announce updates to Appian RPA that simplify the already-easy Appian low-code experience even more—including the reveal of the new Appian RPA task recorder that allows you to record browser automations right from your workflow designer.
