I worked with Kryon on various AS400 projects and it worked perfectly.

@Shlomi Kotv My question has been: what were the pros for you when you used this tool? 
But it seems you've already answered it.

Check AutomationEdge platform.  Unique platform to automation business and IT, including IBM integration. Like you can automate compiling processes, push/pull data from applications, and much more.

I can only speak to UiPath since that is the only RPA solution that I have used. I know that there are specific packages that you can integrate into your project that is specifically made to work with IBM AS 400 mainframe terminals.

We have found that Foxtrot (Now NintexRPA) is a very solid solution for IBM iSeries integration using the IBM ACS 5250 emulator, in addition Datamatics TruBot is an alternative solution.

Our main pain points have been: 1) Not building in all the 'what ifs'. A BOT is expecting certain values in a given field. If the expected value is not met, the Bot needs to maneuver around it, not stop the process. The process should include writing an exception and keep going. We learned the hard way that we didn't know all those exceptions - until they happened.    2) Train the BOT to keep you posted on what they have/have not done. Don't wait until the file/output is late to try to figure out what happened. Stay informed!  We love our BOT, and it has allowed us to function as Humans at a higher level - we would not want to go back.

1. Unexpected exception. Customers are usually familiar with normal processes, but it is difficult to enumerate all exceptions during requirements analysis. When a new exception occurs, it can be catastrophic in a production environment. 2. Unexpected changes. RPA depends on third-party apps, but they do not depend on RPA, especially for external applications. RPA responds passively to their changes. Unknown exceptions should be handled by human, and bots should be improved at the same time. But to be honest, it will affect user experience and ROI.
