Automation Anywhere Opens Enterprise
Anywhere has opened its RPA platform to enable the deployment of
software bots on the Automation Anywhere platform by any third-party
software provider. New API-triggered bots provide organizations with
unmatched flexibility and accessibility to automate a broader set of
processes that involve interactions between multiple business systems.
This is now possible through a combination of Automation Anywhere RPA
and cognitive abilities being able to connect with all market-leading AI
and enterprise software providers.
"Much of the success of implementing AI will come from an open ecosystem
of providers all working towards advancing the full capabilities of AI
technology," said Mihir Shukla, CEO and co-founder of Automation
Anywhere. "Intelligent automation and the addition of API-triggered
bots, that can be orchestrated from external systems such as customer
service or supply chain systems, open the door to countless uses to
enhance operational efficiency. This also empowers organizations to
shift human potential toward driving new business growth."
API-triggered bots are at work in a major telecommunications enterprise.
For instance, a new customer account application is approved using
cognitive technology, such as IBM Watson, and then a software bot
automates the rest of the process. There can now be back-and-forth
decision making between the cognitive and Automation Anywhere systems
driven by business process logic. This example is applicable to other
industries as well.
"We have listened to our customers and opened up our RPA platform for
interoperability with third-party software providers via APIs to further
optimize enterprise business processes by fundamentally streamlining
human-robot interaction, resulting in greater business value," said

In addition to API-triggered bots, Automation Anywhere has received
Microsoft Windows Logo Certification, with its products having passed
stringent tests for compatibility and reliability on Windows.
Automation Anywhere is now the only RPA provider to offer high
availability and disaster recovery at the server and the client levels.
This true enterprise-level redundancy is a must-have for Automation
Anywhere's global banking customers.
"We have extended our high availability/disaster recovery capability to
include the bot runners themselves providing a true enterprise class
automation solution to run mission-critical processes," said Kakhandiki.
The following additional platform updates are available:
is now one-click bot deployment for bots, even those with a complex set
of dependencies, enabling organizations to handle more complex business
processes with ease.
•Automation Anywhere Enterprise has
Dynamic Java Automation that runs from bundled Java Runtime Environments
(JRE) to streamline automation on virtual machines.
•There are expanded options for OCR
engines out of the box, allowing customers to choose the OCR engine that
provides the highest accuracy.
