There is something seductive about browser-driven applications. Browsers themselves are applications that benefit from widespread compatibility with different operating systems: once your application works via a browser front-end, you’ve opened up your world to a host of different technologies. Automation Anywhere aligns with this paradigm and extends the ‘no programming needed’ approach to allow users to automate virtually any action or sequence of actions they would otherwise have carried out manually. This also means that users can automate actions through so-called Rich Internet Applications; an additional dimension that opens up even more possibilities.

Rich Internet Applications
Good automation software works with all of these different browser technologies. It leverages the existing power and simplicity of browser interfaces, and multiplies their effect by scripting or mouse movement recording. Automation Anywhere for example provides an intuitively easy yet powerful ‘point and click’ wizard for saving time on repetitive tasks while avoiding any requirement to alter any of the complexity of the back-end applications.
