RPA Management: Where Does RPA Begin and End?

RPA involves more than the design of the automation workflow, which is quite simple with X1 as a no-code solution. The complexity of RPA, on the other hand, lies in a uniform, structured, and controllable approach to RPA throughout the entire company.

The starting point for RPAs is the processes. Once the processes are defined, you need to assess whether they are suitable for RPA. After that, the execution of the automation should be stable. If RPA bots access other software applications such as SAP when executing the process, the stability of the automation also depends on the availability of these systems. Therefore, if the general conditions change, you must also change the automated process – and scale it up if necessary. You can manage all these aspects with the help of X1 Lifecycle Management.

With X1 Lifecycle Management, you actually manage the process of process automation end-to-end – from start to finish. Completely with a single platform. Completely transparent and traceable.

RPA Management: What is X1 Lifecycle Management?

The unique X1 Lifecycle Management is the heart and cornerstone of the X1 platform. X1 Lifecycle Management currently consists of eight phases, which cover the complete lifecycle of process automation. This begins with process evaluation, project planning, implementation and operation, through scaling up to continuous optimization.

This holistic concept of X1 Lifecycle Management enables organizations to manage all their RPA projects and all aspects and phases of RPA with a single platform. This reduces complexity and creates a high level of transparency throughout the organization. As such, X1 Lifecycle Management is a prerequisite for end-to-end RPA management.

At the same time, X1 Lifecycle Management creates a structured, standardized approach for RPAs throughout the organization. The additionally integrated user guidance also guides X1 users, through the RPA process at a simple level in a goal-oriented manner, regardless of their previous knowledge – along the defined phases of X1 Lifecycle Management.

RPA Management: The Benefits of X1 Lifecycle Management

Integrated X1 Lifecycle Management offers organizations five key benefits.

1. Centralization
With a single platform, you can cover the entire RPA lifecycle and manage each RPA phase transparently and centrally.

2. Structuring
X1 Lifecycle Management structures all your RPA projects into clear, controllable phases.

3. Standardization
X1 Lifecycle Management standardizes the company-wide approach to RPA.

4. Reduction of complexity
The integrated X1 Lifecycle Management reduces complexity and creates transparency on a project basis and in the internal level of automation.

5. Increase in efficiency and quality
This company-wide, uniformly structured approach, including user guidance, increases the efficiency and also the quality of RPA.

RPA Management: Integrated Business Process Management Engine

The integration of a Business Process Management (BPM) engine is one of the greatest unique selling points of the X1 platform. The integrated BPM Engine (Process Engine) offers a variety of advantages.

On the one hand, organizations can use the Process Engine to model and document their business processes directly in X1. Existing process models in BPMN 2.0 can of course be imported. On the other hand, the Process Engine makes the process model interactive, so to speak, by allowing users to assign actions to the process model. This enables X1, for example, to make certain decisions within a process – without the use of artificial intelligence.

The Process Engine also helps to simplify complex process models. This makes the process model clearer and less susceptible to errors, enabling organizations to use X1 to automate complex, long-running processes efficiently and effectively.

X1 Lifecycle Management for Transparent RPA Management

An overview of the eight X1 lifecycle phases – how to manage RPA end-to-end.

Evaluate which processes are suitable for RPA and offer the greatest added value.

As a basis for automation, you model (or import) business processes in the standard BPMN 2.0 format.

Develop the “RPA Workflow”, the detailed automation process for the RPA Bots.

Integrated debugging, test, and audit features ensure the quality of the created workflows and proactively make suggestions for improvement.

Configure the commissioning, operation, and monitoring of the automation process.

Use X1 to continuously monitor the stability and performance of the RPA version. X1’s analysis functions accelerate the identification of vulnerabilities.

Scale your RPA resources dynamically and very cost-effectively with the patented X1 Scaling technology.

Manage optimizations and changes, such as downtimes of software applications, easily and centrally with X1. This increases the implementation stability of RPA.
