Quotes From Members Comparing IBM Robotic Process Automation vs. UiPath

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
It's not inclusive, in terms of automation, you can just do it standalone, in its own silo. It's not going to force your existing system or teams, your admin teams, to create new IDs for you or even force them to create new services or APIs for you or expose something from there. They can just keep the way they are doing it right now, but you still automate it.The most valuable feature is the ability to automate mundane tasks. This improves efficiency, reliability, etc. You can form critical operations which can be highly automated.The initial setup is straightforward.I think simplicity is key. One of the things that we've noticed is how our developers have been able to quickly adopt the platform; but not only the developers or the techy people, also the business.

Studio plays a good role in UiPath. It helps the individual to straightaway pick, drag, drop the activities, associate them, give the parameters, then start playing with them, and adopting them into their environment.UiPath Academy RPA training is well put together. It paces well, not too fast nor too slow. You are constantly given new things to experiment with and things to learn which keep you interested, engaged, and moving forward.I have interacted with the community a whole lot, and if the amount of responses that they give in the community is any indication about how fast they would be with the enterprise technical support, then I can only imagine that it would be top-notch.The robots work where you can scale additional servers. They just need a place to work and a process to perform, then you can add-on. Ten bots can easily turn into a hundred bots, then those can turn into a thousand bots. From a scalability aspect, it's great.Anything you can do on a computer with enough effort, you can get the robot to do it.The initial setup is straightforward. There is a lot of guidance in the configuration and actual setup. It feels like installing Windows. It's simple compared to other solutions which tend to be a bit more complex.It integrates naturally with environments in most scenarios, which is good from an implementation standpoint.It is stable when you create the bot in the first instance.

Cons
Extensibility is the key, especially in terms of the Recorders feature that we have. That should be browser independent. Enhance it because some people have Chrome, some have Internet Explorer, etc. Also, integration with PDFs: Not just the ability to read information from PDFs but the ability to write information from PDFs, make it secure, sign it, etc. Finally, if they can allow a token exchange inside the tool itself, that would help.We would like more focus on understanding AI and how it can be used to manage exception handling.Needs better integration with artificial intelligence or with machine-learning.One of the things I would definitely like to see is more of the machine-learning and cognitive capabilities. For example, now that we're starting to automate more and more tasks, there are some things that still require us to go back and modify the robots when we need to. But if we had more of the machine-learning integrated into it, I believe it would be easier to maintain, so that we wouldn't have to go back and adjust every time.

When I was trying to set up the Orchestrator, there were slight technical challenges coming up, more towards the firewalls and enterprise. Corporate network security gave us this challenge.We should receive a list every time transactions are performed, and it would be nice if we wouldn't have to format it every time the robot sent us a spreadsheet.It's a complex environment with all its moving pieces.I would like to see more integration with solutions, like SAP, especially because the biggest companies have a lot of SAP implementations going on. If they would have more packages to support native SAP activities or perform connectivity to some of those SAP clients in transaction codes, it would be awesome.UiPath has to run on some infrastructure, and that infrastructure and security is not scalable yet.The stability is not that good yet for whatever reasons. We have a lot of safety critical things that have to be 99.999% availability, so we're struggling a little bit.The customer support is not that good. You have to send a ticket, and there is no one to call and talk to. When you are talking about operations, it has to be live. Otherwise, you lose money. I would change this a little bit. I think there's an opportunity to improve.We would like to know the prerequisites when installing bots.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
UiPath and RPA, as a technology, will not deliver a big return on investment.They give it away in the community edition for free, so I use it at home.Traditionally, Automation Anywhere and Blue Prism are the biggest things competing against UiPath. Those are usually what most of the clients lean towards, if they see a cheaper licensing option. Clients choose UiPath because it's easier to deploy and learn within their teams.We saw ROI in 15 days.There are operational benefits in terms of time savings and user satisfaction of not having to do menial, repetitive tasks.If you want to do a demo trial, it is a 30 days free.The community edition is completely free. Then, people say, "There is nothing to lose, let me try it."The pricing differs on the requirements. If there is a huge purchase, then we get a discount. There is not a fixed pricing of the product.
