I gotta present a customer the pros and cons of using RPA to populate data via the front end user interface Vs coming API. Any thoughts or pointers that should be highlighted
RPA will be useful if your process involves multiple applications. If you simply need to load data to a database and the data is already nicely structured, then by all means simply use the API call and your done.
However, with RPA you will be able to automate the creation of the source data by, for example, extracting it from different platforms, compiling into one source file and then even calling your API endpoint directly in the RPA process
I hope it helps a little.
