For Ovum’s 2019 evaluation, Micro Focus provided a demonstration of their RPA solution to show its key features and capabilities. Ovum reports that "Micro Focus Robotic Process Automation is an enterprise-grade solution based on the company's decades of experience with operations orchestration (OO) and unified functional testing (UFT) products”. The assessment makes note that Micro Focus RPA allows its users the ability to combine screen-based robotic automation with IT automation in a single UI and that Micro Focus RPA offers a central dashboard allowing users to assign encrypted, role-based credentials to each robot for secure robot management.

Micro Focus’ RPA robots are cited by Ovum for their ability to easily adjust to UI changes that include size, color, and position. This adaptability helps organizations reduce their overall robot maintenance costs.
