I’m not suggesting your response in snarky necessarily, but I’m interested in learning pros and cons and the perspective of each of those points in both columns.

Thank you for the thoughtful response!!
If your organization or your clients are considering RPA, you should assess whether it’s truly the best solution. They promise a rollercoaster and deliver a broken tire swing. It legitimately makes no sense to compare it to wework.
You just can't do that with Python, it takes much longer to master automation by coding than by using one of the RPA tools. UIPath is another one to look at, but Blue Prism seems more popular in the enterprise. UiPath has been one of the great success stories in the RPA space, but the company has acknowledged that it will lay off around 400 employees.
I’ve been in the Industrial Automation field for 13 years.
overhyped the technology. rates in the past two years, it is natural that we evaluate our teams and I have not encountered any RPA use cases that could not be accomplished using Python. UiPath reports that there are still 90 openings for the company, particularly in tech and engineering roles, which is …
RPA is cancer. That point aside, I’d wonder why you’d chose to write python or any scripts for an entire enterprise when you can have a centralized location for all automation. Then quickly wash your hands and learn some shell scripting + python to accomplish more in less time.
What processes are the low hanging fruit so to speak? The reason why software trades at multiples it does is the recurring and sticky nature of revenues. Overall, there is nothing we see that indicates a flattening or slowing of robotic process automation (RPA’s) growth. UiPath Confirms Layoffs.

I’m not sure why that is worthy of a snarky response.
I’m not for or against scripting or RPA, that is a genuine question. This suggests that layoffs are more to do with the challenges of scaling a company in a nascent technology in tune with the shifts in the overall market.
As others have said, RPA doesn't really provide anything that some code couldn't do. This post isn’t necessarily directed at only consultants, but most of us here are: Does anyone have any experience with RPA, vendors, software, use cases? 5.4k members in the rpa community.
Exactly what I was looking for.
Tell me what you really think! Also, automating processes generally takes somewhere between 2 and 8 weeks, so it allows for some very quick wins. For context, I've been implementing RPA projects for some time.

This sub is dedicated to discussion of robotic process automation, rpa tools and the field in general. If you’re talking automating two processes in a small business, RPA makes no sense, but if you’re talking automating an entire enterprise, why would you choose scripting over an automated solution like RPA? We’ve talked to UIPath, BP, and AA. If your organization or your clients are considering RPA, you should assess whether it’s truly the best solution.
