What are the concerns with an RPA accessing an external website besides the below:
- It may be illegal for bot to access website
- Websites formatting may change and are likely unknown
- Websites release schedules may vary and are likely unknown
- Accessing many websites creates complexity for RPA
I ask because there is an automation opportunity that is across 60+ external websites and I want to know what your concerns would be in having an RPA log into each website and data scrape and extract information and drop in a shared location for the business to access. I have many concerns as listed above, but curious to hear the community’s thoughts.
