Making an automation platform stronger through technical partnership

Share this post:

Automation platform RPAAutomation is at the forefront of the next wave of digital transformation. Robotic process automation (RPA) is one of the key technology contributors with its ability to quickly introduce automation and achieve business value through increased efficiency and employee productivity at low cost and with near-zero risk.

Analysts who observe the RPA market see companies using RPA to achieve desired business outcomes as they digitally transform with the help of automation. Three conditions are driving this investment:

  1. Some companies are deploying RPA bots in attended and unattended modes to automate front-office and back-office tasks, so they need an RPA platform that offers both capabilities.
  2. Some companies are deploying larger transformational automation initiatives and need an enterprise-class RPA solution that is scalable and able to meet any security and compliance requirements.
  3. Some companies have limited IT resources and want a no-code RPA solution that can be easily deployed by business users without significant involvement from IT.

To address these drivers, we’ve been enabling the IBM digital business automation platform to interoperate with more RPA solutions to give clients freedom of choice to execute according to their objectives. Our newest collaboration is with UiPath, a market-leading RPA vendor.

IBM and UiPath have jointly developed API connectors, which will help companies seamlessly integrate the UiPath RPA task automation technology with the IBM Digital Business Automation platform’s low-code tools. This technical collaboration will help customers digitize their operations and drive new efficiencies.

By integrating the core RPA technology of UiPath with IBM Digital Business Automation capabilities, customers can get the benefits of compliance and scale without any technical integration efforts. We wanted to ensure that technical skill gaps didn’t get in the way of building enterprise-class automation applications.

To see how this integration works, watch the following video showing how an insurance company can automate claims processing by using UiPath RPA along with IBM automation capabilities such as Business Automation Workflow, Operational Decision Manager and Datacap.

The above demo combines UiPath RPA with automation capabilities from the IBM Digital Business Automation platform so that organizations can integrate all of the elements — people, systems, content and bots — into one seamless process. This level of collaboration can shorten project lifecycle times, accelerate time to value for automation investments and boost return on investment.
