Automation Anywhere and Google Cloud have announced a strategic, multi-year collaboration to accelerate intelligent automation adoption with enterprises on a global scale.
With this partnership, Automation Anywhere’s Automation 360 platform will be available on Google Cloud, and the two companies will mutually develop AI- and RPA-powered solutions. It brings RPA capabilities to multiple Google Cloud products and closely align go-to-market teams, to help global businesses scale RPA capabilities.
“By partnering with Google Cloud, we can help organisations leverage intelligent automation capabilities at a massive, global scale, and dramatically decrease the amount of time that teams spend on their most common, repetitive business tasks,” said Mihir Shukla, CEO and Co-founder, Automation Anywhere. “Intelligent Automation can be an important asset in digital transformation, particularly as global enterprises adapt to a new reality of distributed work. We’re delighted to work closely with Google Cloud to support business transformation with cloud and automation.”
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 percent 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.
“As businesses increasingly run in the cloud, RPA provides the means to streamline processes across both cloud-native applications and legacy, on-premises systems - ultimately helping employees spend less time on repetitive tasks and more time supporting business-critical projects,” said Thomas Kurian, CEO, Google Cloud. “We are proud to partner with Automation Anywhere to help businesses quickly deploy and scale RPA capabilities on Google Cloud, and to address business challenges with solutions specially designed for industries.”
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.
