Users of Enterprise RPA consider ease of software and robot maintenance, security and scalability to be its most important features. Integrated cognitive and machine learning for processing unstructured data is also important, as is the availability of robot operational analytics. RPA is a journey and the richness of the software speeds up that journey. UiPath 2018 is another significant step forward towards meeting these requirements for Enterprise RPA.
