If you’re an IT professional who works with Windows, PowerShell is a valuable part of your toolkit. The command line shell and scripting language allows administrators to automate tasks on both local and remote Windows systems, and on other systems like Linux.
PowerShell is versatile and powerful, but it has its downsides. Adding enterprise features that come standard in other automation tools like audit logs, error handling, event-based triggers, and critical security to PowerShell scripts takes a lot of time, and a lot of code.
How Do I Automate a Task in PowerShell?
If you rely on PowerShell or any kind of scripts to automate your processes, only people with scripting expertise can build new automation. That makes it harder to expand your team. Automate’s drag-and-drop interface is intuitive for business users and technical experts alike.
If you have existing PowerShell scripts or plan to continue scripting, Automate can run those scripts as part of a larger workflow.
Should You Replace PowerShell Automation Scripts with RPA?
While PowerShell automation scripts are a staple of system administrator duties, learn why RPA can be a better automation tool that suits more of your needs.

Using Automate to run your PowerShell scripts means they are automatically enhanced with all the enterprise-class features of the software, including:
- Cross-platform functionality
- Audit trail logging
