Robotic process automation is one of the emerging fields in digital transformation. It is used to automate the redundant and repetitive task and as a result contributes towards building a large digital workforce. It also reduces the use of manpower and time requirement whereas increasing the accuracy and revenue generation. There are various service platforms which provide tools for robotic process automation. Three major among these are- Automation anywhere, UiPath and BluePrism. These platforms facilitate the development of software bots which can take up repetitive human tasks. These bots follow defined or recorded actions to perform the given task in a controlled ecosystem developed by such platform providers. Although RPA is much of a corporate attraction, its academic research background is unexplored. This paper presents a comparative analysis of the three platform provider for development of bots to automate business processes.
