Robots: How many robots do i need?

Jump to solution

Hi guys,

 

I'm new at RPA, and first step is to understand what is a robot, how can i License it, and know how to calculate how many robots i'll need.

If I'm not wrong, the robot is the capability to run our automated workflows, in a machine, in which we previously installed robot software, is right?

One robot implies one license, right?

To know how many robots, I need in my organization, it will depends on concurrent execution? Capacity of secuential execution? this point is not clear for me, which is the criteria to define number of needed robots?

Where can i find info about license prices?

 

thanks a lot!!

Everything you say about robots is correct.

So - _if_ all of your flows complete quickly enough with one robot, maybe one robot is enough. 

Clearly, if your robot is running 24X7 and flows remain in the queue, you need at least a second robot.

But - there is a customer that has concurrency of about 10 so 10 robots. They are retailer with many stores.Their business critical flow gathers information from all of the stores at the end of the business day, and the need the information ASAP, so they determined that 10 robots completed in a timely fashion.

Make sense?
