Automation Anywhere is a global leader in Robotic Process Automation (RPA). The company was founded in 2003 and has been operating in over ten countries.
The flagship solutions of Automation Anywhere, apart from Automation Anywhere Enterprise, are IQ Bot, which learns by observing human behaviour, and BotStore, the Automation Anywhere Bot store, which contains ready-to-use robots for typical tasks. Automation Anywhere Enterprise (A2019) is designed for enterprises that want to implement a digital workforce made up of software bots, carrying out complex business processes. The company combines traditional RPA with elements of artificial intelligence and Machine Learning, such as natural language processing (NLP) and unstructured data reading.
The latest version of Automation Anywhere Enterprise A2019 is the first cloud-based RPA platform in the world.
The new Enterprise A2019 platform offers enterprises of all sizes unprecedented opportunities that include:
- instant ease of use - a highly intuitive web interface simplifies the creation of bots, helping organisations automate more business processes than ever before. Using a web browser, users of all types and skill levels can log in and build their first bots within minutes. Nothing to install, configure or maintain. The RPA platform allows users to easily create software bots on any operating system - Windows, macOS or Linux - and on any device.
- Native in the cloud on an unprecedented scale - Enterprise A2019 is a native cloud platform that offers customers both RPA service as a service from the cloud and local deployment with privacy, security and encryption of enterprise class data. The software as a service model allows users, with reduced cost of ownership, almost infinite scalability and a drastic reduction in pricing time, to obtain inherent benefits from RPA. Customers can choose to implement it locally or share it from the cloud.
- Equipment with artificial intelligence (AI) - users have the ability to use the built-in functions of artificial intelligence and easy integration of third-party AI solutions (e.g. Computer Vision), natural language NLP and predictive modeling - all with the simplicity of “drag and drop”.
- New Attended Automation 2.0 - Users have access to a new automation technology that provides better collaboration between bots and people between teams and workflows. This makes front-office process automation much easier, faster and more cost-effective.
Anywhere in July 2018, in round A of financing, gained USD 250 million from New Enterprise Associates and Goldman Sachs for further development of its products, which is primarily proof of a very good perception of AA's offer by global business. The total valuation of Automation Anywhere is USD 1.8 billion.
