RPA (Robotic Process Automation) tools are universally adopted and praised for their software robotics. They automate the software processes in the absence of APIs. First, it’ll scrutinize the GUI and then recapitulate the user behavior automatically to perform any task. RPA technology is built for saving cost, time, and manpower. For these reasons, RPA tools have been implemented not only in business, banking, and finance but also in health, aviation, manufacturing, etc.
Although there are many RPA tools, UiPath and Blue Prism hold an excessive share of the industry. Both UiPath and Blue Prism are comparable yet have their own individuality.
So, if you want to deploy one of these tools for automation we have some juxtaposition between the two.
UiPath is one of the most popular RPA tools for software automation. UiPath has a web-based orchestrated framework and supports both attended and unattended bots. UiPath uses traditional coding for programming the automating tools and it has complex handling. The major tools used in UiPath are Sharepoint, Kibana, and Elasticaearch. It provides visual design features and is easily incorporated for window desktops as well as mobile; just drag and drop. It has 300 in-built automation modules from simple to advanced software processing. In terms of dynamic features, UiPath has its limitations.
Blue Prism gives neck-to-neck competition to UiPath. It was developed in 2001 by a UK-based organization to automate the workflow of software processing. Blue prism uses C# or low codes for programming the tools and it supports the client-server framework. It only supports unattended bots. The major tool used for Blue Prism is C#. Blue Prism also provides an easy user interface with a drag and drop feature but it can be only incorporated as an app. It has better control than visual design. Blue prism overall has great dynamic features for client control.
UiPath and Blue Prism Comparison
We have discussed the best of many features of the two most prominent RPA tools. Let’s compare them sidewise.
- UiPath primarily supports attended bots whereas Blue Prism only supports unattended bots.
- UiPath can encrypt in window desktops and mobiles, whilst Blue Prism can be accessed as App only.
- Uipath has a web-based framework and Blue Prism has a client-server framework.
- UiPath has macro recording features but Blue Prism doesn’t.
- You can access many training sessions and free certification for UiPath but not for Blue Prism.
- UiPath is useful for both the backend and front office. Blue Prism is mainly used for backend offices.
- Both have visual designs.
- Blue prism supports rectangular blocks which are resizable, UiPath supports traditional coding for automation.
UiPath and Blue Prism Demos
We at PDF.co have developed plugins for both UiPath and Blue Prism. In the process of reviewing these plugins, we’ll also get to know working with these RPA in a real-world scenario. Interesting, isn’t it?
UiPath and PDF.co
PDF.co is a Gold Certified publisher on UiPath Marketplace. If you are a UiPath user, you can very easily consume PDF.co services by using its marketplace package. To know more about PDF.co and UiPath Integration, visit this link.
The following video gives an overall overview of the PDF.co UiPath package. We also get to know how to add third-party packages in UiPath.
Blue Prism and PDF.co
Blue Prism plugin for PDF.co is basically Web API configurations in Blue Prism for most used PDF.co endpoints. Blue Prism is truly expandable such as Web API or SOAP-based Web Services can be configured along with all action with input and output types. These configured actions can be used as Business Objects when creating any process.
The video guide below provides an overview of the PDF.co Blue Prism package. You will find more tutorials here.
In conclusion, we can say that both UiPath and Blue Prism provide magnificent RPA features and solutions. In the end, it’s up to users to decide which tool meets their ends best.
