I have been hearing about RPA and looked into different products.
As being a pro Microsoft, It was fortunate to learn that MS has similar features as part of power Automates AI Builder.
AI Builder will help in automating processes to reduce the effort spent on mundane activities and predict the outcome.
The best example of what I can think that can be put in best use is a company receive invoices on email which will be opened by the account/finance team, read them, and create records in finance systems such as Tally or Business Central, etc.
There are the below pre-built models that can be used by making a few configuration changes.
Business card reader model
Category classification model
Entity extraction model
Key phrase extraction model
Language detection model
Sentiment analysis model
Text recognition model
Text translation model
you can build Custom AI models and the options available are the below.
Category classification model: This model categorizes the text by its meaning so it’s easy to analyze
Entity extraction model: Recognize specific information about your business from data
Form processing model: read and save information different standard documents
Object detection model: Recognize and count things in images
Prediction model: Predict whether something will happen or not
The above custom models are available for all the regions. However, prebuild models are as per below.
I have recently done a POC to give a demo to customer on reading invoices and push them to Business Central. Will write a post soon on that.
Power Apps is a high-productivity development platform for business apps, and it has four major components:
Canvas apps start with your user experience, crafting a highly tailored interface with the power of a blank canvas and connecting it to your choice of 200 data sources. You can build canvas apps for web, mobile, and tablet applications.
Model-driven apps start with your data model – building up from the shape of your core business data and processes in the Common Data Service to model forms, views, and other components. Model-driven apps automatically generate great UI that is responsive across devices.
Portals start to create external-facing websites that allow users outside your organization to sign in with a wide variety of identities, create and view data in Common Data Service, or even browse content anonymously.
Common Data Service is the data platform that comes with Power Apps and allows you to store and model business data. It’s the platform on which Dynamics 365 applications are built; if you’re a Dynamics customer, your data is already in the Common Data Service.
