Q1. What is meant by Blue Prism’s Robotic Automation?
Ans: Robotic Automation refers to process Automation’s where computer software drives existing enterprise application software in the same way that a user does.
Automation is a tool or platform that operates other application software through the existing application user interface.
Q2. Blue Prism is an RPA Tool?
Ans: Yes, Blue Prism is an RPA Tool.
Q3. What is the process Studio?
Ans: A Blue Prism Process is created as a diagram that looks much like a common business flow diagram.
Processes are created in an area of Blue Prism named Process Studio which, as we will see, looks similar to other process modeling applications (such MS Visio) and uses standard flow diagram symbols and notation.
Q4. What hardware infrastructure do I need to run Blue Prism’s Robotic Automation Platform?
Ans: Blue Prism has been designed for flexibility and to meet the most robust IT standards for IT operational integrity, security and supportability. The software can be deployed either as a front office or back office process, running quite happily on a standard desktop in the front office or on any scale of systems for back office processing.
Q5. Why Blue Prism need?
- Automation process can be designed within IT Governance
- Supports both internal and external Encryption/Decryption Keys
- Provides Audit Logs enabling
- High level Robustness because of .NET customized code within the process automation (Tool is capable of doing all the activities whatever can be done using .NET)
Q6. What is the Application Object used by BP to add the data into queue?
Ans: Use the Internal – Work Queues Application Object to put the CSV data into the queue.
Q7. What systems can Blue Prism roboticaly integrate?
Ans: Blue Prism has incorporated many years of experience of integration and numerous technologies into its software. The technologies used are secure, reliable and robust. Instead of creating new adaptors for each unique application we have developed technology adaptors for all the technologies employed at the presentation layer, Java, Windows, Web, Green Screen/Mainframe and even Citrix.
This coupled with a wide range of dedicated tools that have been developed means that we are confident in being able to link any system with the click of a button. This proven application orchestration capability ensures that new processes can be rapidly designed, built and tested without any impact on existing systems.
Q8. What is the Excel Object used by BP?
Ans: The Application Object is called MS Excel VBO.
Q9. Is Blue Prism's Robotic Automation Plaftorm secure and auditable?
Ans: Security and auditability are built into the Blue Prism robotic automation platform at several levels. The runtime environment is completely separate to the process editing environment.
Permissions to design, create, edit and run processes and business objects are specific to each authorised user.
A full audit trail of changes to any process is kept, and comparisons of the before and after effect of changes are provided.
The log created at run-time for each process provides a detailed, time-stamped history of every action and decision taken within an automated process.
Our clients tend to find that running a process with Blue Prism gives them a lot more control than a manual process, and from a compliance point of view assures that processes are run consistently, in line with the process definition.
Q10. What are the different spy modes?
- Mainframe we only having one spy mode-mainframe.
- Web based-html spy mode.
- Windows we can use win32,aa and region spy modes.
Q11. How do I get started on delivering processes using the Blue Prism?
Ans: Blue Prism recommends a phased approach to getting started as the Operational Agility framework is eminently scalable. It is typical to target the configuration of between 1 and 10 processes initially with a rolling program of processes being introduced once the framework is established.
Q12. How to make the data item as global?
Ans: By default a Data Item is only visible from its own page, but un-checking the Visibility check box on the properties form will make the Data Item global.
Q13. Does blue prism require coding?
Ans: Blue Prism’s digital workforce is built, managed and owned by the user or customer, spanning operations and technology, adhering to an enterprise-wide robotic operating model.
It is code-free and can automate any software.
The digital workforce can be applied to automate processes in any department where clerical or administrative work is performed across an organization.
Q14. What is the Environment variable?
Ans: An Environment Variable is a value that is made available to all Processes and Business Objects, i.e. across the environment:
- Go to System Manager and look at the Environment Variables tab in the Processes section.
- Data Items exposed as Environment Variables are read-only.
Q15. What support do I need from Blue Prism Professional Services?
Ans: It really depends on the skills you already have in house and the way you wish to work. Blue Prism can provide a full range of services from basic training, support and mentoring with a view to quickly getting your team independently delivering ongoing automations, right through to a full turnkey package where we will take responsibility for delivering business benefit within agreed service levels.
