Question about UiPath


Hi Folks,

Need some feedback, any idea why UiPath (based on latest report from Forrester) scored so low on ‘Breadth of use case’ (2.75) compared to other major RPA vendor?

Does that means UiPath is not suitable for some use cases.

Thanks and Regards,

I Think,Use case means “typically defining the interactions between a role and a system to achieve a goal”…
Every Automation tools is based on use case diagram and flow diagram…
In this, we achieve by using some function instead of use case
In UiPath 'Use case’ is important, but Not much more to achieve the goal…

Just to wonder, as this will be helpful to assist organization accessing RPA tool.
Where AA and BP scored so high in Breath of Use Case, does that mean their tools offer more flexibility, adaptability, and rich in functionality in fulfilling business process use case ?

Any thought will be appreciated

Hey @saibuntoe

If you are From Software Engineering / Computer Science Background you are aware with The UML Diagrams.One of the nine diagrams of UML’s are the Use-case Diagram.

These are not only important but necessary requirement for software projects. It is basically used in Software life cycles. As we know there are various phases in the development cycle and the most used phase for Use-cases would be during the requirements gathering phase.

What Is the Use Case -

  1. A use-case describes a sequence of actions, performed by a system that provides value to an actor(UML actor is a role played by a human user of the designed system, some other system or hardware that interacts with the subject by using services of the subject. Use case diagrams) in simple terms actor is an End User in Use Case Diagram/Flow.

  2. The use-case describes the system’s behavior under various conditions as it responds to a request from one of the stakeholders, called the primary actor(The Use Case documents the interactions between the system and the actors to achieve the goal of the primary actor).

  3. A use-case specifies the flow of events in the system. It is more concerned with what is performed by the system in order to perform the sequence of actions.

  4. A use-case provides the following benefits −

  • It is an easy means of capturing the functional requirement with a focus on value added to the user.

  • Use-cases are relatively easy to write and read compared to the traditional requirement methods.

  • Use-cases force developers to think from the end user perspective.

  • Use-case engage the user in the requirement process.

Now Same thing with RPA -
A use-case is a list of steps, typically defining interactions between an End User and a system, to achieve a goal. The End User(Actor) can be a human or an external system.

Here with business Use case specify the Repetitive task or steps performed by Process Experts and description of those steps and action take by him with various scenarios and events.

It means Depends on Task/ Business Requirements Complexity and Environment challenges.


Thanks Aksh for the thought. Agree with you that breadth of use case depend on task/business requirement complexity and environment challenge.

Back to the Forrester’s report, is there any reason why UiPath score only 2.75 on this breadth of use case compared to AA (4.1) and BP (3.4)? Does that means UiPath cannot support complex and challenging business requirement?

I am not aware on what parameters they have observed the behavior of all systems or they are just considering the market reports. Their analysis criteria is with them. If they have stated that does not mean after all that it is not able to do with complex tasks.

I have used UiPath mostly with many challenging and easy scenarios and found it useful at all places in the past and hope so future as well. UiPath Team is working well to make their product outstanding and stand out different from others.
The other Products are little older so they have may be more users and views so that is why the reports considers the things.

But IMO Give it a try and analyze as per your needs and on your parameters :slight_smile: .
Even if forester had given it max pointer then also you are not make sure that in every environment you will be able to automation without any compromised way. It is with all others tools as well.

Their are more things i have found better then AA and BP in UiPath and still their is more yet to come. jUst wait for the more Product releases and Updates From @badita official guy. :wink:
