Blue Prism is a software that installs and uses the computer to introduce the sequence of steps to what the user does. This could be a very simple action like launching an application and clicking some buttons to some complex functionalities like comparing images to perform like optical character recognition. We do this by creating process flow diagrams in blue prism there are to visual diagrams for each component in the flow chart is configured to a specific action.
To install Blue prism, the following are the pre-requisites:
Supported Windows operating system.
Microsoft .Net framework 4
Supported Microsoft SQL Server Database.
The components involved in Blue prism are:
In the Studio, there are two types Process and objects. In process studio, we are creating the process and in Objects studio, we are creating the objects.
In Control room, we have options like Queue Management, Session Management, and Scheduler. We are giving the process to queue and run the process in the queue itself, the run time of the process is called Session Management and in Scheduler, we will schedule the process.
A Dashboard is nothing but, what are the Automation we have done are shown in Dashboard.
In this, we have two types, Dashboard and Tiles library. Tiles are nothing but charts like flow charts & pie charts etc. Release Manager is nothing but the process of exporting a file from one to another. In System Manager, we have options like process, license, objects and configuring the Calenders, timetables. This is related to process and control room.
Blue Prism Robotic Process Automation (RPA) software delivers the world’s most successful digital workforce, which has executed over 1 billion transactions in our customers’ datacenters. Blue Prism (AIM:PRSM) is trusted by a diverse range of highly successful organizations to operate in some of the most demanding administrative environments. Blue Prism’s RPA software delivers a digital workforce for the enterprise to eliminate high-risk, manual, rules-based, repetitive tasks and execute business processes at scale to improve organizational efficiency and effectiveness whilst radically reducing operating costs. Blue Prism provides a scalable and robust execution platform for best of breed AI and cognitive technologies and has emerged as the trusted and proven RPA platform for the digital enterprise. Customers include BNY Mellon, Commerzbank, Nordea, ING, Westpac, Zurich, Aegon, Maersk, Siemens, IBM, Procter & Gamble, and Nokia. With offices in Manchester, London, Miami, Chicago, New York and San Francisco, Blue Prism is listed on the London Stock Exchange AIM market.
We had been considering RPA as a way to accelerate business results, but we needed a solution that could be housed internally, scale rapidly, and be up and running within two months,” said Markus Stanek, head of Group Efficiency of Raiffeisen Bank International. “Thanks to Accenture’s knowledge and Blue Prism’s enterprise-class RPA software, we want to create an in-house robotics Centre of Excellence within a very short time frame. We have successfully piloted our RPA program in four countries to date, and based on our early positive outcome, intend to continue RPA roll-outs in 2017."
“This relationship builds on Accenture’s history of helping organizations capture new business value through automation and complements our efforts to apply the technology quickly and at scale to ensure benefits are realised early,” said Manish Sharma, group operating officer, Accenture Operations. “The cost and productivity benefits of RPA are enabling firms to operate smarter and are offering the human workforce the opportunity to engage in more stimulating and strategic work.”
Alastair Bathgate, CEO and co-founder of Blue Prism, commented, “We are delighted to be working with Accenture to deliver the value of a digital workforce to many different types of organizations across the globe. With 40 firms already on board to benefit from this alliance, we are seeing a clear appetite for RPA as firms quickly realize the vast array of benefits to business performance and productivity.”
“RPA has the potential to deliver significant benefits to enterprises in terms of cost, efficiency and productivity,” said Sarah Burnett, vice president, Everest Group. “For RPA technology vendors, collaboration with service providers and system integrators is a powerful way to meet growing client demand for RPA technology across continents and industry verticals.”
Operational needs and technical demands include: 1. Integrating systems that don’t work together – eg ensuring messaging mechanisms exist between Bed Management systems and Patient Administration Systems where HL7 initiatives have proven too costly / lengthy to achieve (or indeed are infeasible without wholesale change of PAS).
2. Enabling the use of technology and devices: mobile handsets and tablets for community workers; digital pens; touch screen arrival kiosks; etc. Availability, affordability and timeliness to deliver traditional API based interfaces are often prohibitive factors to strategic integration projects that would otherwise stumble without the use of robotic automation.
3. Enhancing patient care through data quality initiatives – eg updating local records with changes to PDS data, such as the death of patients with pending outpatient appointments.
4. Increasing health Trusts’ ability to better communicate and integrate services with partner organisations – eg the automated transmission of child protection and immunisation data between Acute and Community providers.
5. Responding to regulatory mandates – eg changes to record keeping or governance processes that aren’t readily supported by LSPs and vendors
6. Increasing purchasing effectiveness and operational efficiency by automating administrative processes – eg automating stock control processes leads to better procurement practice, reduced clinical waste and reduced clinical risk.
7. Automating legacy manual workarounds and processes against older or unsupported IT systems
8. Addressing important day to day operational changes during major transformation programs
9. Operational changes driven by mergers and acquisitions of health Trusts.
10. Integration with systems where web services or APIs are not feasible
11. A need to reduce operational costs 12. A need to improve accuracy and consistency in patient care.
