‌Neither‌ ‌solution‌ ‌requires‌ ‌any‌ ‌coding‌ ‌experience,‌ ‌and‌ ‌both‌ ‌are‌ ‌easy‌ ‌to‌ ‌use‌ ‌and‌ ‌have‌ ‌great‌ ‌drag-and‌ ‌drop‌ ‌functionality.‌ ‌The‌ ‌training‌ ‌and‌ ‌resources‌ ‌for‌ ‌AA‌ ‌are‌ ‌especially‌ ‌good.‌ ‌‌It‌ ‌can‌ ‌be‌ ‌easily‌ ‌learned‌ ‌by‌ ‌anyone‌ ‌and‌ ‌is‌ ‌very‌ ‌developer-friendly.‌ ‌ ‌AA‌ ‌‌easily‌ ‌integrates‌ ‌with‌ ‌multiple‌ ‌systems‌ ‌and‌ ‌with‌ ‌the‌ ‌environment‌ ‌of‌ ‌your‌ ‌organization,‌ ‌although‌ ‌it‌ ‌‌would‌ ‌be‌ ‌nice‌ ‌if‌ ‌it‌ ‌was‌‌ ‌more‌ ‌compatible‌ ‌with‌ ‌the‌ ‌Citrix‌ ‌environment.‌ ‌‌Power‌ ‌Automate‌ ‌integrates‌ ‌better‌ ‌with‌ ‌Microsoft‌ ‌products‌ ‌and‌ ‌not‌ ‌as‌ ‌well‌ ‌with‌ ‌other‌ ‌solutions.‌ ‌ ‌ ‌AA‌ ‌can‌ ‌be‌ ‌scaled‌ ‌rapidly‌ ‌and‌ ‌it‌ ‌has‌ ‌top-notch‌ ‌security.‌ ‌But‌ ‌stability‌ ‌is‌ ‌a‌ ‌bit‌ ‌of‌ ‌an‌ ‌issue.‌ ‌ ‌While‌ ‌the‌ ‌licensing‌ ‌cost‌ ‌of‌ ‌AA‌ ‌is‌ ‌reasonable,‌ ‌Power‌ ‌Automate‌ ‌comes‌ ‌included‌ ‌with‌ ‌Office‌ ‌365‌ ‌and‌ ‌therefore‌ ‌has‌ ‌no‌ ‌additional‌ ‌licensing‌ ‌fee.‌ ‌ ‌


Conclusions‌ ‌Both‌ ‌solutions‌ ‌are‌ ‌very‌ ‌easy‌ ‌to‌ ‌use.‌ ‌‌AA‌ ‌is‌ ‌scalable‌ ‌and‌ ‌secure‌ ‌but‌ ‌stability‌ ‌is‌ ‌a‌ ‌bit‌ ‌of‌ ‌an‌ ‌issue.‌ ‌ ‌I‌ ‌feel‌ ‌like‌ ‌neither‌ ‌solution‌ ‌is‌ ‌particularly‌ ‌mature‌ ‌so‌ ‌in‌ ‌that‌ ‌sense‌ ‌other‌ ‌options‌ ‌might‌ ‌be‌ ‌worth‌ ‌looking‌ ‌into

Hi Shibu, a new concept within the RPAaaS, besides being available from the cloud, is pay for what you use.   Still most platforms provide the 24x7 availability of agents which for SMB are too expensive. AutomationEdge, which is considered a contender in the 2021 PEAK analysis from Everest, has an option to pay by chunks of minutes and/or chunks of operations, in case of IT automation, per month.
