Migrate Enterprise Applications to the Cloud with UiPath RPA

Nicole Champion
Senior Product Manager

The sudden onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted most industries worldwide. One of the industries hit hardest was the airline industry. Early on, they experienced sweeping restrictions on international travel and lower customer demand. Many flights were canceled, and ticket holders needed vouchers for them. One airline turned to UiPath to deploy robotic process automation (RPA) bots to handle high volumes of voucher requests, cancelations, and extend bookings. As a result, they relieved the burden on staff and saved more than 10,000 hours for back-office work for the first 14 days.

Preparing for the Next Normal with RPA

Most of the world's businesses didn’t anticipate disruption at this scale. Now, companies are shifting from crisis management to longer-term planning to accelerate their digital transformation and move their enterprise applications to the cloud to achieve adaptation and resilience. We’re observing that many customers are early in their digital transformation, and only about 6% of Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) customers have upgraded to the cloud, according to the Oracle Q4 2020 earnings call.

Organizations with key business processes enabled by applications such as Oracle EBS, PeopleSoft, and JD Edwards might find that a SaaS migration is not viable. That’s where UiPath comes in. Organizations can apply robotic process automation (RPA) to bridge the gaps by automating the data transfer to and from these legacy applications to Oracle ERP, EPM, and HCM Cloud.

Ease of Use

Oracle has partnered with UiPath to deliver a streamlined RPA integration, so customers experience faster time-to-value and reduced development times with out-of-the-box, low-code integration capabilities. Oracle recently published a reference architecture that includes architectural diagrams, recommendations, and considerations to help you:

  • Easily deploy UiPath and scale your automation projects on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

  • Leverage Oracle Integration Cloud as your integration strategy and extend workflow automation across Oracle applications, including applications that don't provide APIs for integration.

Why Run RPA in the Cloud?

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is designed to run enterprise application workloads, with an emphasis on security at its core. It also provides hyperscale, while not costing a fortune in compute and network egress costs.

For the large number of new customers using or migrating to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, the UiPath one-click deployment from the Oracle Cloud Marketplace reduces your deployment time and costs. It also ensures a predictable deployment that’s tested and validated by UiPath infrastructure deployment specialists. Customers can focus on their automation projects rather than on deploying infrastructure and easily scale their robot deployments as their needs evolve.

You can deploy the UiPath architecture worldwide in any Oracle Cloud Infrastructure commercial region, offering peace of mind, security, and scalability at the touch of a button. The following products are available:

  • UiPath Orchestrator: Deploy Orchestrator and the SQL database instance in a virtual machine, which makes it easy to administer and reduces data transmission times.

  • UiPath Studio and UiPath Robot: Seamlessly deploy one or many virtual machines that are automatically provisioned with Orchestrator.

These solutions are available as bring-your-own-license (BYOL) listings. Deploy from an existing license or elsewhere, and use existing Universal Credits to pay for the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure resource costs that you incur.

    Great post by our partners at Oracle! RPA is a very important topic and has become even more critical during COVID times. UI Path is a great option for RPA, and although they currently lead the RPA space, we see that our Oracle EBS customers have hit some EBS specific complexity using this solution. They over came the challenges by using AuraPlayer technology to create the EBS automations to plug into the UIPath framework.
    Looking forward to more posts on this topic!
