A recent press release states, “IBM and Automation Anywhere today announced a collaboration to help companies drive new efficiencies by delivering solutions that assist employees with routine, data-intensive tasks. The collaboration is intended to make it easier for companies to improve processes across their enterprises and free employees to focus their time on more creative and customer-facing aspects of their jobs. As part of the agreement, the two companies plan to integrate Automation Anywhere’s Robotic Process Automation (RPA) platform, used to create software bots to handle repetitive, task-based business processes, with IBM’s portfolio of digital process automation software. The IBM software, which includes IBM Business Process Manager and Operational Decision Manager, is used by organizations to design, run and manage complex business processes.”
The release goes on, “The new joint solution, planned for the third quarter, will enable clients to use Automation Anywhere’s RPA platform to create software bots that execute tasks within larger business processes managed by IBM’s software. By integrating these technologies, the collaboration aims to provide companies with a comprehensive set of tools to create and use software bots to streamline digital tasks across more of their processes, whether running in the cloud or on-premises systems. The new offering will be particularly relevant to companies where employees routinely have to manually complete tasks within business processes. These are especially prevalent in the banking, financial services, insurance and healthcare industries which have data-intensive, manual processes, such as filing insurance claims, processing bank loans, paying vendors for services and opening customer accounts.”
