There are all kinds of compliance requirements out there, so you're posing a pretty broad question, but generally speaking, security compliance requirements are going to involve continuous monitoring, access management, encryption, endpoint and network security, and patch management.
It's going to come down to a log management solution, many of which provide reports that help you prove compliance. But because compliance usually has governance requirements, meaning that upper management is aware of risk issues and can provide proper direction, your log management solution needs to be able to present the technical details in a way that is meaningful to potentially non-technical people. So it's important to vet the solutions well, so that you know they work for your environment and your C-suite.
There are also compliance consultants who can bring expertise to the table. And if you're not sure where to begin, consider implementing a risk assessment so that you know what areas are most applicable to your business.
There are a number of options to get these kinds of documents scanned and categorized. Among them are use of stand-alone OCR technology (Tesseract or Google Cloud Vision, for example) or implementing an RPA tool with bots to handle the process. Either can be done in-house or, if you don't have the time/resources/expertise among your staff, by a consultant.
The route you take will depend on things like budget (of course), volume of documents, how fast and how often you need the work done, and the availability of your staff to do or oversee the process. Either track will require a learning curve, both require some knowledge and training, and standalone OCR will likely require notably more coding expertise.
In either case the starting point is to gather examples of all the docs you are going to need scanned and determine how they should be categorized and whether there is any data within them you need categorized.
Next, whether you go with standalone OCR or RPA bots, the tools are going to have to be trained to recognize the text in docs and, in the case of RPA, to know what to do with it. OCR can identify text within an image, and convert it to machine-readable text and then you'll need a system to categorize it. RPA can do both.
The last stage is evaluating the accuracy of the scans and the classification process and, often, adjusting the process to increase accuracy before it is validated as "working". Even then, you will want to monitor the results.

What is your recommended IT Service Management (ITSM) tool in 2022?
All companies, from large to small, are trying to keep one end of the digital transformation, but for large companies, the situation is more than opening a social media account.
Sometimes they may have to manage millions of data. And the faster they do these transactions, the more they get ahead of the competition.
Although RPA is a well-known tool in digital transformation in the world, it...
Hello Lillian Moya-Levi, I work for an RPA consulting firm that partners with Blueprism, Automation Anywhere, Power Automate, and UI Path. These RPA technologies are used in many industries such as Banking, Energy, and Retail, and they all allow you to consume APIs and automate interfaces for applications or ERPs.
If you need more detailed advice or want to analyze your needs, we are available and I offer you to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or our company at email@example.com.
Yes, you can use several applications, and also you can use APIs for your automations, if you have questions you can also join UiPath Community, and look for topics related to the applications you are planning to interact with. It is also UiPath Academy where you can try it yourself.
Sure can - Ideally you should pursue integrations with APIs using screen scraping as a last resort so you avoid the hassles of changes in the user interface, performance fluctuation of the target application, unexpected or not mapped exceptions, and other variables that may be out of your control. Screen scraping would work fine for applications that are stable, not prone to frequent changes in the user interface, and with a small number of exceptions.
Yes, RPA software can make use of APIs. Typically web services, JSON, HTTP, etc., are supported by the major RPA vendors. The important aspect when designing an RPA solution that is going to use API functionality as part of the solution is to consider the "Exception" process. What will happen when there is an issue, how do you make the data available and how do you bring a "Human into the loop"?
YES! RPA can automate any app and can use APIs. However, you should ask one more question - Can RPA bring you a positive ROI? Unless you save millions by automating your tasks, your ROI will suffer as many RPA solutions cost a lot in license, consultation, and development. I recommend you also look at new-generation tools like Robocorp and ARGOS LABS. They are based on Python. Open, flexible, powerful, and economical.
I believe most of the below responses have covered all possible solutions. But the main question is what is the need in the current situation? Does assessment happen for complete requirements? There are a lot of solutions available but the most important is which one is better and needs to be selected as per the organization's need. RPA is a more preferable option for automation but please make sure you had already accessed all other possible solutions. It would be really great if you analyze the complete requirements from all possible solutions including RPA and see which one is better. If you need any assistance then please register yourself on the leading technology platform support group (RPA, non-RPA platforms) and ask to support team. If still you don't get satisfied solutions, then feel free to ask here and all experts in this forum will surely help you (including me).
I work with HelpSystems' AutoMate RPA software and you can use any software with it, also you can use APIs. If you have any questions please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The short answer is yes, as others have already stated. Having helped several banks and mortgage companies automate many of their tasks, your biggest obstacle to automating things efficiently will not be the technology, but will be the business process analysis and approach, and how the solution(s) is choreographed with the staff. Understanding your current state processes, and getting baselines, is critical to your success. A previous poster referenced "changes in the user interface, performance fluctuation of the target application, unexpected or not mapped exceptions, and other variables that may be out of your control." Things that cause problems in production are not obvious in the planning stages unless an automation-proficient process professional helps you evaluate opportunities and prescribe approaches.
Sure, you can RPA interface with any applications (e.g. SAP, Excel, Word, Notepad, Web browsers and etc.). About APIs, yes you can use them. With the RPA you can manipulate any .csv, .txt, .pdf, .xls, or .doc files. You can receive and send emails. You can use telnet, FTP, and remote desktop. Any RPA solution has more than 800 functionalities that you can use for different cases.
Yes. All well-known RPA products can interface with applications using exposed APIs. If not API, then via desktop automation for Web/Desktop applications. In some cases, you may have to use Java Access Bridge.
However, if it's a mainframe AS/400-based application, I have a faster and better solution using API.
We use UiPath and Microsoft Power Automate. Both of them work well for integration with most web/desktop applications. MSFT Power Automate has many ready connectors for a lot of applications to help with API integrations. Contact us if you need help with implementing the RPA solution. Mail ID: email@example.com.
