RPA Interview Questions
Thin Client : The thin client can be referred to as applications that never acquire the quality properties while spying using any RPA tool. It does not run on a local machine. It runs only on virtual client/server architecture.
 
Example : VMware, VirtualBox, or any other virtual environment.
 
Thick Client : The thick client can be defined as the applications which provide handful attribute features using RPA tools.
 
Example : Apps like notepad, browser, etc.
Here are some :
 
Telecommunications : RPA can help monitor subscriber feeds, update customer data, manage fraudulent activities, etc.

Banking : A bot can automate the process of the credit card application, loan disbursement, etc.

HR : With the help of RPA, it can get easy to automate payrolls, source prospective candidates, conduct background verification, etc.

Retail : RPA helps manage fake accounts, update orders, manage coupons, process shipping notifications, etc.
Screen scraping is an essential component of the RPA toolkit. It is used to capture bitmap data from the screen and cross-check it with the stored information to decipher it.
* It works on application elements that are not accessible through the code or UI frameworks.
* It provides text digitization through Optical Character Recognition (OCR).
* It is easy to implement and mostly accurate.
Robots Macros
Learn and enhance themselves from repetitive processes Do not learn from repetitive processes
Can act autonomously Cannot act autonomously
Respond to external stimuli and reprogram themselves Do not respond to external stimuli
Highly secured automation Security is not a high priority here
Rich analytical suite - RPA monitors and manages automated functions from a central console. This console can be accessed from anywhere and offers basic metrics on robots, servers, workflows, and more.

Simple creation of bots - RPA tools enables the quick creation of bots by capturing mouse clicks and keystrokes with built-in screen recorder components.

Scriptless automation - RPA tools are code-free and can automate any application in any department. Users with less programming skills can create bots through an intuitive GUI.

Security - RPA tools enable the configuration and customization of encryption capabilities to secure certain data types and defend against the interruption of network communication. 

Hosting and deployment - RPA systems can automatically deploy bots in groups of hundreds. Hence, RPA bots can be installed on desktops and deployed on servers to access data for repetitive tasks.

Debugging - Some RPA tools need to stop running to rectify the errors while other tools allow dynamic interaction while debugging. This is one of the most powerful features of RPA.  
Following are the steps to create an RPA bot :
 
* First, the task is recorded.
* Then the bot is implemented into the RPA model.
* Then the bot is tested as per the requirements of the business.
* Lastly, the bot is uploaded to perform the automation.
Any automation solution built using a virtual desktop or built to work in virtual desktops is called Citrix automation. It plays an important role in small to large companies like BPO and contact centers where applications are being accessed remotely because of security considerations.
A chatbot is a bot programmed to chat with a user like a human being, while robotic process automation is a bot programmed to automate a manual business process of executing a task or an activity within a business function. 
 
A chatbot can be used as a medium to feed input to the RPA bot, but it cannot replicate the features of an RPA system.
RPA is a growing technology, and it is spreading into the different sections. The future of RPA is very bright, as several human actions can be automated. Because an RPA does not require any programming skills, therefore, it is easy to start a career in it. Anyone can become an RPA certified professional with some basic knowledge or training.
