It is with great honor that I, on behalf of the entire Pega RPA development team, get to announce the latest major enhancement to Pega RPA with our newly designed Robot Studio! The design team for version 22.1 of Robot Studio, collectively, has decades of automation development experience and is laser-focused on ensuring that automation developers will LOVE the environment.
"Our team has worked tirelessly to build something that not only are we really proud of, but we are also confident that our clients will love. This work has truly been a collaborative effort and I have never been prouder to be part of a major project like this, where Engineering worked so closely with Product Management, UX, and most importantly our clients. This effort has paid off in spades and the result is a product that is now leaner, blazingly fast, and substantially easier to use. The new Pega Robot Studio is without a doubt the gold standard for robotic automation development across the globe." - Danny McDougald, Director of Software Engineering, Robotics, Pegasystems, Inc.
And I am thrilled to say that users are already showing love for this new version of Pega Robot Studio!
"Robot Studio v22 is such a joy to use. The speed and ease with which you can test is going to be a game changer for developers; especially those used to working in 19.1 or earlier versions. New developers will appreciate being able to test each automation step as they are recording or interrogating. My favorite new concept though has to be Application Assets. These will allow developers to produce concise, reusable functionality that makes collaboration with other developers (especially citizen or non-technical developers) so much easier." - Thomas Sasnett, Lead Robotics Architect, Pegasystems, Inc.
Not only did we include our best ideas in this product, but we also collected and incorporated feedback from v21 users over the past year. It has been great to learn more about how our clients use the products we create and, even better, collaborate with them on the final design and feature set of version 22.1.
The COVID-19 pandemic has taught us that the office is not as essential as it used to be if we have the tools to collaborate effectively. This increased need for collaborative tools that are easy to learn and use was the impetus behind many of the features now in Robot Studio v22. For example, Application Assets make it possible for experienced automation developers to remotely work together with citizen developers on the same automation project to drive reusability and collaboration like never before.
Application Assets, along with other new features like Intelligent Recording, easier automation building, and better debugging make Robot Studio a breeze to learn while increasing the speed to completion for all your automation projects.
And finally, our enhancements around Citrix deployment and new ways of delivering browser extensions reduce infrastructure requirements - speeding delivery of product updates and lessening the demand on your IT teams.
