Examine your need
From akaBot’s experience, there are 4 critical questions businesses should answer before Migration:
- Are you wanting to lower the Total Cost of Ownership/Licensing fees by migrating your automated process to a more reasonable solution or integrating several RPA tools into a consolidated one?
- Do you find it difficult to achieve automation ROIS with the licensing model that your current provider offers?
- Do you have the goal of transforming your automation ecosystem this year?
- Are you struggling with the project scalability, maintenance, or support service of your current vendor?
If the answer is yes, then it’s time to re-analyze your current RPA platform and consider turning it into a new RPA platform to increase automation efficiency and quality.
Be aware of the hardship
Obstacles to Migration (Source: Process Modernization in 2022)
According to the same mentioned survey, rebuilding automated processes on the new RPA platform is the most significant challenge encountered by organizations when migrating (55%), followed by the necessity of specialist resources (48%), and the cost (47%). Others see executive sponsors being unwilling to invest in RPA Migration (47%) and employees resistant to Migration (39%) to be the biggest causes for hesitation they would have in making the migration.
In terms of specialized resources, it is essential for any business to take compatibility and interaction among tools into consideration before making the migration. Besides, businesses should also analyze their existing automation portfolio and carefully consider every aspect that is involved in the migration process, including completion time, cost, challenges, and goals to achieve.
