Why RPAaaS is what your organization needs? 1st part

Always starting the writing of an article by request of the communications team is challenging for anyone summoned. For us immersed in this world of technology, it is challenging to organize tons of information in a short and precise way so that any person can understand the message or question we want to answer.

This article stems from a recurring question from our clients: some are exploring technologies for their organizations either on their initiative or because someone asked them to investigate; others are already familiar with technology and know well about ways of acquiring licenses or terminologies such as "On-Premises," "Cloud Enabled," and "Cloud Based," among others… others too, already know this and have implemented ERPs and CRMs, so much so that the time has come to move on to automating things "more malleable" and now face failed or ongoing BPMS or RPA experiments and projects; You will understand then that I will give my all to put this into words wherever you are, find value in this short text and worth the 5 minutes of reading you are already dedicating to it.

Today, we will focus on explaining why RPAaaS is the solution your organization needs. For this, I assume that you, dear reader, already know what RPA is; if you have skipped this point, I recommend you invest another 3 minutes and read this article (What is RPA Technology?) before continuing.

The model of "something" as a service was born in the '60s with IBM when it rented timeshares to companies on a computer that was practically impossible to buy for anyone but the government or a super multinational; that is now national history, I will explain it in big words in the following image, courtesy of a great friend and fellow adventurer, an engineer named Oscar Ochoa, who used this to explain to undergraduate and graduate students what the cloud is and how computing had evolved. Over time, remember, the white part is the property and, therefore, the client's responsibility (including acquisition, maintenance, and replacement costs), while the yellow part is the property and, thus, the service provider's responsibility.


As we can see, the use of applications, the Software as a Service model, better known as SaaS, takes 98% of the problems and costs off us and leaves it in the hands of the provider, who will be responsible for ensuring that everything operates correctly. I hope this image helps you understand why SaaS models are popular with IT teams today, which has triggered their growth.

You may wonder, what does the above have to do with RPAaaS? Well, SaaS in the prelude to RPAaaS, where more than one genius said in unison to his client: "Could you lend me RPA as if it were SaaS?" and as good businessmen, entrepreneurs, and sellers that we are, we answered: "Of course!" and here we are, talking about this.
