What is AgilePoint NX?
The AgilePoint NX platform was designed from the ground up to create business applications that are adaptable in real time. In today’s environment, customer expectations (be they internal or external users) can change overnight. Economic, market, social and/or political realities can force a change in practice without notice. Such changes can render current business processes obsolete. AgilePoint NX is one of the only “no code/low code” application development platforms able to adapt to such changes in real time. This means it is possible for a single instance of an app to be adapted in real time based on Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things or human interaction. Such capability makes it possible for you to drive your Digital Transformation Initiatives to new, previously unattainable heights.
RPA & AgilePoint NX
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is a form of digital transformation technology that can perform repetitive tasks without human intervention. The ideal usage for RPA is for actions that must be taken repetitively, frequently and that have no variation in the action taken. RPA is a powerful tool for handling structured data and interacting with legacy systems that house critical, historical databases.
However, the rigidity of an RPA robot makes it impractical for environments where circumstances change. An RPA robot cannot make judgement calls or adjustments on the fly. To make an adjustment the robot must be taken offline, redesigned and redeployed. That’s where the combination of RPA and AgilePoint NX can provide a powerful solution. Applications build with AgilePoint NX can extract structure out of unstructured data through the use of text analytics and Artificial Intelligence (AI). An AgilePoint NX app can then direct the RPA robot to perform the repetitive task that it is designed to perform. This enables the RPA robot to adapt to change without needing to be taken offline.
