Hi community,

Can we generalize the main components used to build an RPA solution architecture for a big company?

Thanks for your help!

Elements of an RPA architecture:

1. RPA tools

2. Platform

3. Execution Infrastructure

4. Configuration Management

An Example of RPA Architecture: UiPath

UiPath is a leading RPA tool provider in the market. Its solution helps organizations in automating workflows and enhance their efficiency substantially. UiPath has a drag and drop interface, which smoothens the learning curve. UiPath’s architecture has three layers, as well. They are:

-> Client

-> Server

-> Persistency

The client layer has UiPath Studio and UiPath Robot, whereas the server has UiPath Orchestrator. The Persistency layer of UiPath contains the Database. All of these components have specific roles. 

This was just an example. Many other RPA solutions have such layers and components, and they function similarly to the manner we’ve discussed previously.

The RPA is software that works like any other software: Server and Client. 

Of course, the server needs a basic OS and the hardware and stuff if it is to be hosted in your own environment. 

Most RPA tools are available as SaaS. Hence, all you need is a subscription and you are ready.
