This course is intended to teach the skills that are needed to work with the IBM Robotic Process Automation (RPA) with Automation Anywhere Enterprise Client and Control Room to develop and manage bots. The course covers the development of both Meta bots and Task bots but focuses mostly on Task bot development.

The course uses an interactive learning environment, with hands-on exercises to reinforce concepts and check understanding. Lab exercises throughout the course provide hands-on experience with developing robotic tasks.

The course introduces robotic process automation, typical use cases, challenges, good practices and high-level architecture of the IBM Robotic Process Automation with Automation Anywhere product. The emphasis of the course is in hands-on coding in the development environment (i.e. Workbench).

Development is performed using the most common bot commands. Bots are built to accomplish everyday business challenges including extracting data from various sources, writing data to various sources, conditional processing, and looping. The course also covers the use of various Recorders to record user interactions.

At the completion of the course, the student is encouraged to take a Badge test to earn the Automating Tasks Using IBM Robotic Process Automation with Automation Anywhere V11 badge.
