Yes. Pega Robotics can load deployment packages from local or network shares and does not need Pega Robot Manager (PRM) to provide them. The advantage with PRM though is much better flexibility in deployment and package management. In addition, using the Synch Engine allows Runtime and its parts to be updated as well. If your Robots are going to be performing RPA work, then PRM provides the queuing required to allow you to scale the number of bots you have performing a task. It also allows you to monitor them and schedule them as well as tracking the work that they are doing.
