Automation runs on data. Data Service enables easy data storage and transfer between automation solutions
All the automation processes we create runs on data. The data is often fetched from flat files, excel, databases, websites, and other sources to generate the required output. Automating business processes to generate the output needed is not just one task.

Hence, a proper and efficient handover of data from one process to another is important. Most of the time, we use excel files or databases for this matter.
