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.

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

@Evgeny Belenky I haven't found any problem with integration, screen scrapping, emulators, glass, etc.  

Please specify your question and I'll try to elaborate

@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.
