AutomationOps: A modern approach to automation

Align your team and constantly improve your automations using the AutomationOps methodology.

What is AutomationOps?

AutomationOps is a modern approach to automation. The AutomationOps methodology brings together the business users and the technical team to plan, build, maintain, and continuously improve automations.

Modern software development

At the end of the day, automation robots are built with lines of code, so it stands to reason that robot development should follow software development best practices. The AutomationOps approach brings modern development practices into the world of automation.

The right tools for the job

In order to follow best practices, you first need the best tools. Robocorp has built our platform on Python, as it is the native language of automation, and it is used for automation, analytics, and AI (AAA).

Analyst Jason English of Intellyx explains that AutomationOps is much more than just another rote process methodology.

Document business needs and identify solutions.

The teams within your lines of business know their needs better than anyone. Which repetitive tasks suck the most time? Where are you inputting the same data multiple times? Automation may be the answer.

Design automations and build robots.

What will the automations look like, and what systems will they connect? What will trigger the automations? Business users and developers work together to map the process, then developers build the robots to perform the automations.

Deploy robots. Monitor, measure, and improve.

AutomationOps is an iterative process, so deploying the robots is just the beginning. From there, members of the business lines team and developer team should monitor performance and constantly seek out improvements to the automation process.

Where business meets technology

Core to AutomationOps is iterative development, which requires business users and developers to work in sync. At Robocorp, we advocate for the combining development and operations into a single, agile center of excellence (CoE).

The CoE can include internal developers or those from an outside implementation partner. To learn more about AutomationOps and building your CoE, contact our team.
