Robotic Process Automation Vs API Integration | UiPath
Dylan Bowman is director of pre-sales for Canada at UiPath.
Business leaders know that automation is key to future growth. In fact, research from The Economist Intelligence Unit shows that 93% of companies say automation can kickstart digital transformation. “Automation,” however, isn’t one strategy, nor is it even one technology.
As companies start to adopt an ‘automation first’ mindset, they want to know which automation technology is right for them. The choice between Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and application programming interface (API) automation is particularly confusing.
Each has advantages and disadvantages. In many situations, the right answer is a hybrid strategy that uses RPA as the larger framework and API integrations for specific functions.
