Open Source Tools:

Open RPA

Open RPA is an easy-to-use RPA tool with a drag-drop interface like mainstream RPA tool vendors. Open RPA uses Windows Workflow Foundation and the entire platform is built using a microservice architecture.


A complete suite of automation tools with RPA and AI, the $0 license tool has a decent academy that is growing. The tool can be downloaded here.


A Python-based stack for automating with a control room in the cloud. You can download the tool here and access their documentation here.


TagUI does not use flowcharts but “human language” like Command line syntax to automate. So, you tell it things like this: click login; type username as xyz etc. You can also do Visual automation for Websites and Desktop.

      Ankit, Microsoft RPA is at it’s early stages – still basic stuff in terms of RPA. Good to explore for the low code AI and overall automation though.
