World news – Google will develop RPA with Automation Anywhere


The provider of Google Cloud and Robotic Process Automation, Automation Anywhere, announced a new partnership on March 15, under which the providers will jointly develop AI- and RPA-based products.

The deal comes after Microsoft last year acquired the RPA provider Softomotive to add thousands of new features to Microsoft’s Power Automate platform.

Google’s partnership with Automation Anywhere makes sense, said Alan Pelz- Sharpe, founder and principal analyst at Deep Analysis.

One way to look at RPA is through the reincarnation of macros, he said; It’s the low-code-no-code ability to automate repetitive tasks.

For Google, the partnership with Automation Anywhere will result in a focus on general back office administration tasks before creating bots that can perform similar tasks in certain industries.

Automation Anywhere is part of a group of leading automation providers alongside Blue Prism, UiPath, Pegasystems, WorkFusion and Softomotive.

Automation Anywhere « goes well with the other major RPA Compare vendors, but in fairness they all do the same, « Pelz-Sharpe said.

RPA tools automate repetitive tasks, but the differences between vendors can be seen in how well their platforms manage and orchestrate bots on a large scale.

According to Google, Google Cloud will incorporate Automation Anywhere’s RPA capabilities into some of its services, including Appsheet, Apigee, and AI Platform.

Through the The partnership will also make Google Cloud the primary cloud provider for Automation 360, Automation Anywhere’s cloud-native automation platform. In return, Automation Anywhere will become the preferred RPA partner of Google Cloud.

Together, the providers will develop automation-based products and services that are geared towards industry-specific applications, especially in the areas of financial services, healthcare, life sciences, supply chains, telecommunications, Retail and Public Sector.

While the core technology behind RPA has been around for decades, corporate adoption of RPA is still increasing. Last year, Gartner predicted that 90% of large companies would be using some form of RPA by 2022.

Cloud competitors AWS and Microsoft also offer RPA tools. « Most RPA implementations, however, rely heavily on subject matter experts and service teams, » said Pelz-Sharpe.

The vendors provide the technology, but ultimately the success of an RPA project depends on partners and customers, he continued go on.

Google’s plan to work in industries could work well if it included at least everyday tasks, Pelz-Sharpe said.

« All in all, you’d be a [Microsoft] Azure or AWS customer not make you become a Google customer, « he said. “But it could deter a Google customer from switching to another pile.”
