Digitalization enables the organizations in serving the growing needs of the increased population. But it is associated with different tools and requires a diversified skill set is needed to handle it. Unfortunately, there are minimal human resources available in the market who possess this diversified skill set, and they are not sufficient to address this scarcity problem. To resolve this issue, entire IT industry needs a solution that could be fast, reliable, and capable enough to solve this problem. And finally, they found a solution to this problem in the form of RPA. UIPath is one of the major RPA tools. Now, let’s start with knowing what RPA is all about.
Robotic Process Automation is a software that uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning to automate the backend office processor to perform the tasks without human intervention. These tasks could be calculations, queries, maintenance of records, etc. RPA technology is referred to as a software robot or a Bot which mimics a human activity.
UI path is one of the widely used robotic process automation tools and it was founded by the Romanian entrepreneur in the year 2015 to provide a software which can eliminate the tedious time consuming back office works. It converts the boring tasks into automated ones with the help of unique tools. It enables your processes to be more effective and reliable.

We have three products available on the UIPath platform. They are as follows.
There are two types of standalone projects that are available in the UIPath and they are process and library. Let's discuss each of them in detail.
A process forms an association between an environment and a package. A package is a predefined pack of services developed using the Jacada Integration and Automation (JIA) application. Every time a package is inserted into an environment, it automatically gets distributed to all the robot machines that are connected to the environment.
The process page will allow you to manage previously created associations, to deploy an uploaded package to robot environment, and keeps all your processes up to date. It facilitates us in easily distributing the packages on the robot machines and creates a faster process from the jobs page.
A library is a package which contains various reusable components. Libraries are saved in the form of files and can be installed when they are required to handle the excess workflows using the package manager. In Orchester, this is termed as a centralised place to store all the libraries, namely the library page. From this destination, the libraries are available to access by the people who have permission or accessibility to it.
A process library is defined as a sequence of tasks with a well-defined business function, which make them suitable for reusability and sharing. On the Libraries page, you have an option to view and delete the libraries that had been used on the UIPath Studio, and also the files that were uploaded manually.
In UIPath, the Automation is associated with multiple aspects and it enable you to automate the rule-based process. To achieve effective automation, each work should be assigned to a specific thing and can be performed effectively. Each activity in UIPath has to undergo small activities like reading a file, clicking a button, writing a log panel, etc.
Below mentioned are the essential workflows in UIPath.

As the automation reaching every corner of today's world, it has become essential for the organizations in choosing the right tool that best suits their organizational needs. UIPath is having a wide variety of features that are needed for the effective implementation of automation in an organization. RPA is being used in various areas which include remote applications, scraping techniques, data handling techniques, etc. UIPath eliminates the difficulties in moving the manual processes to automation with its unique features.
