Is RPA the real ETL2.0?
This may seem provocative, but the intent is to do that! When I closely look at where RPA tools have been implemented; most common use cases are, to extract from different sources, process (transform) and then move or load into another destination. If my memory serves - screen scraping has been in existence for ages :) The only difference, here is that destination is not to build a data warehouse or data mart, but to continue the operational process of the business. Note, the last stage of this process could be a RPA task that builds a Data warehouse. Furthermore, people may nitpick to say RPA provides other capabilities like recording user actions converting to commands, giving the bot to impersonate a user/human, are they sufficient to differentiate?
