Automation Anywhere Executive Vice President -IMEA Milan Sheth said the partnership with Google Cloud will help enterprises strengthen their automation capabilities, reduce time spent on repetitive tasks and improve workforce productivity.
According to new research from Automation Anywhere, more than half of businesses plan to increase their investments in automation in the next year, with 67% opting to deploy RPA in the cloud in the next 12 months, driven in part by the need for remote work solutions amidst the global pandemic. Automation Anywhere has deployed more than 2.8 million bots to some of the world’s largest enterprises.
Google Cloud India Managing Director Bikram Singh Bedi said companies across industries are investing in intelligent automation as part of their digital transformation strategy.
“When it comes to RPA, Automation Anywhere is a clear leader, and we are excited to bring their platform and capabilities onto Google Cloud,” said Bikram Singh Bedi.
By combining Automation Anywhere’s capabilities with Google Cloud, migrating their overall platform onto the cloud, and jointly going to market, Bikram Singh Bedi said Google Cloud can bring greater value and technology to customers.
“It will scale Automation Anywhere ‘s business, and deliver more value to customers with RPA capabilities integrated into Google Cloud,” said Bikram Singh Bedi.
Through this collaboration, Google Cloud will also integrate Automation Anywhere’s RPA capabilities with services such as Apigee, Appsheet, and AI Platform, enabling customers to scale the application of automation with API management, low- or no-code development, or the development of ML workflows.
Automation Anywhere and Google Cloud will jointly develop solutions geared toward industry-specific use cases, with a focus on financial services, supply chains, healthcare and life sciences, telecommunications, retail, and the public sector.
Additionally, Automation Anywhere will migrate Automation 360, its cloud-native, web-based automation platform to Google Cloud as its primary cloud provider and will become Google Cloud’s preferred RPA partner.
Automation Anywhere solutions will also be available in the Google Cloud Marketplace, making it deployable across cloud, hybrid, and on-premises environments, and providing customers with a single view and management pane across all assets and environments.
Today, RPA has become an integral part of businesses’ digital transformation efforts. ‘Front office’ employees at financial services companies, call centers, human resources or finance offices, IT centers, and more handle thousands of manual, repetitive tasks each day, such as invoice processing, lending decisions, and employee onboarding.
In the back office, IT teams and developers spend time managing APIs, entering data, and ensuring that new, cloud-native applications can connect with legacy, on-premises systems. RPA, along with machine learning (ML), computer vision, deep learning and analytics can help businesses streamline these processes and better support their employees with the development of AI-powered software bots capable of managing an infinite number of tedious front-and-back-office tasks.
Automation Anywhere on Google Cloud will be generally available beginning in May 2021.
