RESTON, Va. — Appian (NASDAQ: APPN) today announced the availability of the new Appian Robotic Workforce Manager solution for Blue Prism. The solution, designed specifically for users of Blue Prism’s connected-robotic process automation (RPA) software, enables superior management of the digital workforce and optimized coordination between robots and humans.
The solution enhances visibility into robotic processes, and gives human workers greater control over when and how to invoke, prioritize, and coordinate work with digital workers. It also improves visibility, compliance and scalability of RPA implementations.
Organizations such as S&P, OCC and many others use Appian and Blue Prism. At Appian World 2019, Aegon, Unione Fiduciaria, and Queensland University of Technology are presenting on the benefits of combining these technologies.
“Using Appian and Blue Prism together gives us greater power in automating complex processes,” said Adeel Javed, Manager of Process Automation at OCC, the world’s largest equity derivatives clearing organization. “Combining the two products extends the reach of our automation initiatives and enables centralized management of the entire workforce.”
Features of the solution include:
Linda Dotts, SVP Global Partner Strategy and Programs for Blue Prism, said, “Appian’s Robotic Workforce Manager solution for Blue Prism provides incredible levels of visibility and self-service to business users and process owners involved with RPA implementations. The solution is a perfect example of how our connected-RPA vision, when coupled with a technology partner, can help drive broader business impact and transformation for our clients.”
In addition to the Robotic Workforce Manager, Appian also released a series of no-code integration plug-ins for designers and administrators in the Blue Prism environment. Called “Appian Skills,” they are drag-and-drop integrations that make it easy for Blue Prism developers to connect with Appian.
New Appian Skills for Blue Prism include:
Prittam Bagani, Director of Product Strategy at Appian, said, “The Robotic Workforce Manager stems from our strategic partnership with Blue Prism and was built in collaboration with our joint customers. The solution activates the next-generation enterprise workforce of people and software robots. It provides enterprise automation leaders with the visibility, governance and product capabilities to scale their automation program. The result is greater business impact.”
Appian and S&P Global will co-present a session on RPA success at the May 22-23 Blue Prism World conference in Orlando, FL.
