The Four Phases of Business Process Automation
Project managers could divide BPA into four main phases.
n this phase, you review your organization’s infrastructure. Assess its requirements and objectives before performing a full review of the current systems, data needs, and business processes. Then select a technology solution based on its architectural design and its fit with the business.
During this phase, set up and customize the technology. If necessary, extend the current IT systems with specialized plugins and add-ons. At this time, documentation is critical, and you should record each and every functionality.
At this phase, perform API integration. This enables the new programs to access and communicate with other existing programs. You should also perform data integration during this step, combining data from disparate sources.
Maintenance and Support
This last phase seeks out bottlenecks and flaws in your processes so that they can be corrected. You should continuously update your system versions, with consistent migration to new platforms as they are available.
