Preparing your IT Organization for Future Automation Platform by combining RPA with UiPath Test Suite

Last Updated: 16 Dec 2021


UiPath’s Robotic Process Automations are integral to enterprises in ensuring better accuracy, improved compliance, significant cost savings, super scalability, together with increased speed and productivity.  Often the push from many COOs is to get RPA robots live as soon as possible, sometimes even before it has been assured that they are ‘doing the right thing and doing the thing right.’ This exposes the business to one level of risk and affects the potential benefits and ROI.

CIOs/CTOs must treat RPAs like any other business application and manage their development and maintenance lifecycle by placing the SDLC governance in place. Automated CI/CD and regression testing of the robots should be central to this governance model. Moreover, this needs expedient diagnosis as to why RPAs will stop/have stopped working correctly.

Future Automation Platform – RPA with UiPath Test Suite

Keeping these above facts in mind, let us have a sneak peek into the recently concluded webinar:
