Python automation is one of the most powerful tools your business can deploy.
Python can handle a large array of different input types, from CSVs, JSON, PDF and text based content its ability to open and read the input from files will enable you to either pull the data you need out of the file or use the data within your application.
Web scraping is another way to gether content for your application. Using packages such as requests and selenium you can build a custom application that can pull data from an API or web based source to build either a CSV or JSON for you app.
Web automation using Python is fantastic again using Selenium to create custom tests to fill out forms and automate a user actions for test for a expected result.

Developers can run into situations where you need to either run updates or daily checks on servers or web based applications, this might be as simple as checking that all your websites are currently up or running automated updates on a large number of sites. Python provides you with away to run files in the terminal which can be accessed using cron to run either hourly,daily or each month.
