Whether you are just starting your RPA program or performing an RPA Infrastructure check-up on your existing program, there are a few important items to consider.
Keeping your RPA Infrastructure up to date does ensure you have access to the latest features and highest speeds. But more importantly there are serious security and stability concerns with letting your software get out of date.
Small consistent upgrades allow your RPA Program to keep humming with minor adjustments as you go along. Large jumps in version numbers can cause significant issues and bot breaks.
When do RPA Infrastructure Services make sense?
Companies should consider RPA Infrastructure services when:
- Starting a new RPA Program
- Scaling up or upgrading your RPA Technologies
- Significant system updates are required
These are moments where strategic business planning is needed to create the foundation for your RPA Program. The type, size, capacity and speed of your RPA Infrastructure directly affect the cost, efficiency, and success of your automation initiatives.
RPA Infrastructure Choices - On-prem vs Cloud
On-premise RPA Infrastructure
Some industries have regulatory and compliance concerns that require them to host all of their information on physical servers on-premise. Both UiPath and Blue Prism offer on-premise versions of their solutions, however there are a few tools that work better in cloud hosting. In these instances, private cloud infrastructures can be blended with physical server hosting for a best of both world’s infrastructure.
Cloud RPA Infrastructures
Cloud based RPA Infrastructures, whether private or managed, do not require the space or upfront investment of physical servers. Working in the cloud allows you to purchase the hosting and processing power that you need on a monthly or annual basis. Cloud based systems allow you the flexibility to scale up or down as needed. In Managed Cloud solutions the servers, and even your RPA software can be kept up to date automatically, avoiding update issues.
