Automating Tasks with IBM Robotic Process Automation 20.12.5 (WB504G)

Overview

This course introduces developers to IBM Robotic Process Automation 20.12.5. You learn the skills that are needed to implement task automation by developing bots. Through hands-on exercises, you become familiar with IBM RPA environment, including RPA Studio and RPA Portal. You become comfortable with flow control, conditional logic, text processing, mathematical calculation, and file management commands. You learn how to automate browser interaction, capture and process information from spreadsheets, and process email. You publish your bots to the server and learn how to manage bot execution through scheduling, launchers, API calls, and orchestration processes. You are also introduced to BPMN workflows and chatbot development.
