Cyclone RPA Overview

Cyclone Robotics is a well-known RPA software and solution provider in China. In 2021, Cyclone was selected as a Niche Player in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant and Strong Performer in Forrester Wave. Now, let’s take a closer look at the product that Cyclone Robotics delivers – the Cyclone RPA suite.

RPA robots can replace some human operations which gives them another name “digital employee”. Сyclone Digital Employee is comprised of three core parts:

  • Cyclone RPA Designer: a development platform for automated process files.
  • Cyclone RPA Robot: an automated business process executor.
  • Cyclone RPA Controller: a central management hub for robots.

These three core parts may have different names across RPA companies but their functionalities are similar. With the continuous update and extending demands more innovative RPA products will emerge to break through the boundary of RPA capabilities.

Equipped with a drag and drop, Cyclone RPA Designer can easily be used to automate scripts and processes. After an automated task is designed, it can be distributed to Cyclone RPA Robots and executed on demand. However, a single unit of one DESIGNER and one ROBOT are far from enough as an enterprise commonly required numerous robots to execute tasks. This is where Cyclone RPA Controller becomes useful. Cyclone RPA Controller monitors and manages robots by collecting process files from designers and distributing them to robots. Together these three parts help enterprises to become digitally automated.

Cyclone RPA supports both unattended and attended automation. Unattended automation has already been seen in our daily lives. For example, if there is a lot of paperwork in need of checking, RPA can do the job under most circumstances. In some other scenarios, attended automation is implemented because RPA may have difficulties dealing with processes out of designated rules. In these cases, human interactions are needed. In a real working environment, there are still many steps requiring intervention from human workers. Traditionally, the interaction is limited between man and system. Now with robots in the game, human body collaboration will bring new possibilities to execution patterns.
