Role of RPA in Project Management
Authored By: Gaurav Dhooper
In the various performance domains of Project Management, the use of digital technologies is becoming important allowing the project managers to focus more on value delivery and benefits realization.
RPA (Robotic Process Automation) is one such technology which is helping in automating manual, repetitive and rule-based tasks performed on the UI (User Interface) layer of an enterprise software or a computer application. For example, the manual activity of sending the project progress reports (generated from the data entered in any project management software such as JIRA, Trello, Zoho, etc.) through emails on daily/weekly basis. An RPA bot could help immensely in automating such Project Communications Management activities and, thus, save the human effort, making the process efficient and error-free.
