Empowering Financial Process Automation through Azure Cloud Services
- Deploy Blue Prism Software (RPA) on Microsoft Azure Cloud
- Ensure high availability of BOTS for continuous operation
- Achieve end-to-end management and monitoring of the application
- Chose Microsoft Azure due to its high scalability, robust security features, and strong support for RPA technologies
- Selected Blue Prism Software for its proven efficiency in automating complex financial processes
- Addressed challenges in configuring Azure architecture to meet stringent financial regulatory compliance
- Ensured secure data transit between on-premise datacenter and Azure Cloud
Achieved a 30% increase in process speed and a 40% reduction in manual effort, leading to increased operational efficiency and enhanced customer service levels
- Early engagement with cloud architects can significantly smoothen the implementation process
- Continuous monitoring and assessment are crucial for maintaining high security and compliance standards
- Explore further automation opportunities within other operational areas
- Evaluate the integration of AI and machine learning to enhance process automation
Figures and Tables
- Azure Architecture Diagram
- Components: Azure Virtual Machines (VMs), Azure SQL Database, Networking (Virtual Network, Subnets, Network Security Groups), Azure Active Directory, and Blue Prism Software deployment.
- Connectivity: Depict VPN or ExpressRoute for secure connectivity between Azure and on-premise datacenter.
- Security: Illustrate security groups, firewall configurations, and other security measures
- Operational Efficiency Table:
|Process Speed (tasks/hour)
|Manual Effort (man-hours/month)
|Customer Service Levels (%)
- Process Speed: e.g., 200 tasks/hour pre-implementation vs 260 tasks/hour post-implementation.
- Manual Effort: e.g., 500 man-hours/month pre-implementation vs 300 man-hours/month post-implementation.
- Customer Service Levels: e.g., 80% satisfaction pre-implementation vs 95% satisfaction post-implementation.
- Percentage Improvement: Calculate the percentage difference for each metric.
- Process Flow Diagram:
- Input: Source of data or trigger for the process.
- Processing: Tasks performed by Blue Prism bots, decision points, and any human intervention.
- Output: Resulting data or actions, final storage or reporting.
