The world today is shifting towards digitization and demanding the next generation of process automation. RPA or Robotic Process Automation is here to bring that change in the world of process automation, enabling automation of complex business processes with the help of software robots or BOTs. RPA is pushing the limits of business process automation (BPA) and helping businesses to travel their digital journey.
Globant’s Process Automation Studio partnered with UiPath, a global RPA player to bring about a developer meetup for the passionate and enthusiastic members of the RPA community in Pune. The idea was to drive in the vision of delivering solutions that enable businesses to be more efficient, innovative and agile. The meetup – the second in its series – was held on Saturday, June 8, 2019, at Globant’s Pune facility, and saw close to 70 participants from various fields, expertise, and organizations in attendance.
