Perhaps RPA (robotic process automation) can be compared to the introduction of the automobile. You can argue its advantages or worry about its disadvantages. But you can’t deny that the elimination of the horse carriage and invention of the automobile had a disruptive, almost ubiquitous impact on society and on the workplace – changing people’s jobs and creating new positions. True, you no longer needed coachmen. But you began to need bus drivers and conductors. Distances shrank, the world became smaller, and new opportunities and business partnerships became a reality.

Attended, Unattended, and Hybrid Automation: Which One for Which Process?

There are few aspects of robotic process automation (RPA) that are more important for a business to understand than the differences between attended and unattended robots. Not only are these differences key to making sense of how RPA works, but having a sense of what they are and what they do is essential in order to choose the right solution for the right scenario.

Both attended and unattended robots can automatically perform processes based on a set workflow and – with today’s more advanced solutions – their built-in artificial intelligence. But the two types of robots are activated differently, they communicate with humans differently, and they run on different computers. And while most RPA providers offer attended automation (performed by attended robots), unattended automation (performed by unattended robots), or both, Kryon stands out for its uniquely useful Hybrid Automation solution in which both kinds of robots work together.

For us at Kryon, a recent article on Forbes.com called The Big RPA Bubble got our attention, raising important points about some common misunderstandings and unrealistic expectations regarding enterprise automation. The article expressed some skepticism, but it also reflected some of the important capabilities of today’s RPA solutions and the ways companies can leverage them. Yet while it pointed out some of the gaps between what people expect RPA to do for their companies and the impact it actually has, it didn’t delve into the ways emerging technologies can narrow those gaps.
