Building on the success of UiPath Academy launched in April 2017 which counts 30,000 students of the RPA Developer Foundation Diploma course, Academy 2 is the first free-of-charge online Advanced Diploma for RPA Developers.
The curriculum offers developers practical RPA development exercises focused on proven use cases, enabling them to master the UiPath RPA platform in a controlled environment. This is delivered alongside a series of webinars preparing users for a certification exam. Utilising UiPath’s methodology of automation best practices, Academy 2 also provides in-depth teaching on how to develop scalable enterprise-grade RPA deployment.
Also at UiPath Forward Americas a powerful line-up of early RPA adopters will present to an attendance of more than 700. Alongside prominent industry analysts from Forrester and Everest Group, the summit will host a plethora of UiPath customers including Dentsu, GE, HP, Equifax, JG Wentworth. The event will also present partner implementation success stories by Avasant, Capgemini, Cognizant, Deloitte, and EY.
Sarah Burnett, VP, Everest Group, will reveal fresh new findings at the event, “Enterprise-grade RPA is critical to the success of automation projects today. Our latest research indicates that users value ease of software and robot maintenance, security, and scalability as the most important features of enterprise RPA. These reduce the effort that is needed to develop, run and maintain robots. Our findings show that enterprise RPA should also offer integrated cognitive and machine learning for processing unstructured data and provide detailed robot operational analytics.”
Building on Forrester’s latest report that estimates the growth of the RPA market to $2.9 billion by 2021, Craig Le Clair, VP and Principal Analyst, Forrester will also unveil new research at UiPath Forward, “The majority of firms now believe RPA robots as digital workers are good for their organizations. Businesses today are looking for control and operations management, proof of scalability, and a cognitive AI roadmap when selecting an RPA provider. We are also seeing a growing variety of use cases for RPA and AI to accelerate, including chatbots with customer service, IoT sensors with predictive analytics and unstructured content with text analytics.”
