Marina Cernat, Adelina-Nicoleta Staicu, Alin Stefanescu

Abstract

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is now one of the fastest growing segments in enterprise software. This technology uses so called “software robots” that can mimic humans interacting with various applications at the UI level. Thus, RPA achieves automation of various UI scenarios, without writing dedicated software to implement them. In this position paper, we open a discussion on the opportunities and challenges of using RPA to improve the test automation.
