Robotic process automation provider Blue Prism is to incorporate Microsoft’s artificial intelligence (AI) technologies into its Digital Workforce platform.
Building on its ongoing collaboration with Microsoft, Blue Prism will offer customers native access to Microsoft Cognitive Services and the Microsoft AI Platform. This will enhance Blue Prism’s Digital Workforce platform by helping organisations to automate and scale business processes through Microsoft’s AI, machine learning, intelligent automation and sentiment analysis technologies.
“Our customers are looking beyond the automation of work processes, they are looking to deploy a digital workforce that can easily integrate with their other best-in-breed AI and cognitive solutions,” said Alastair Bathgate, CEO of Blue Prism. “Being selected by Microsoft helps enable this vision by providing everyone with unprecedented access and flexibility to the latest automation capabilities, while ensuring that it is done in a sustainable, scalable way. Our digital workforce when coupled with the Microsoft AI Platform and Microsoft Cognitive Services delivers an innovation breakthrough.”
Blue Prism is now the only robotic process automation vendor to achieve Microsoft Gold Certified Partner status and offer a certified cloud reference architecture for Microsoft Azure.
“Today’s enterprises are always looking for new ways to make their operations faster, more secure and more efficient – which is what drives them to seek out cloud and automation solutions,” said Janet Lewis, vice president of Worldwide Financial Services at Microsoft. “Working with Blue Prism to bring its best-in-class software robots to the cloud not only delivers on that promise, but also enables enterprises to truly realise the digital transformation they’re working towards.”
