Automation Anywhere, a Robotic Process Automation (RPA) provider has introduced a new, free RPA Maturity Assessment tool, along with expanded training and other resources, to “simplify how automation teams, business leaders, and citizen developers adopt, deploy, and scale intelligent automation”.
Automation Anywhere is an RPA provider that allows its customers to automate end-to-end business processes with intelligent software bots – AI-powered “digital workers” that perform repetitive and manual tasks. The company offers the world’s only cloud-native and web-based automation platform combining RPA, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and its Bot Store is the world’s first marketplace with more than 1,300 pre-built, intelligent automation solutions.
The free maturity tool assesses program maturity in four key areas: vision and strategy, process and measurement, organization and people, and architecture and technology. It also provides a customized report that identifies opportunities to scale intelligent automation more quickly and effectively and evaluates program maturity, providing recommendations to improve RPA programs by uncovering and eliminating barriers to adoption.
“Our vision is to help every organization focus on more meaningful, creative endeavors that delight customers and grow the business. They can only do that by deferring manual, repetitive tasks and processes to software bots, freeing up time for innovation”, said Prince Kohli, CTO of Automation Anywhere. “With these new resources introduced today, we can empower every employee across the organization – from automation leaders to citizen developers – to leverage RPA, helping us move closer to realizing this goal”.
Alongside the tool, Automation Anywhere also introduced a suite of learning and support resources for the company’s cloud-native, AI-powered Automation 360 platform, which has accelerated the deployment of nearly three million software bots and which ranks as the world’s top public cloud RPA platform with a 54% market share.
The resources include a “Customer Journey Map and Guide”, which is accessible by customers on the company’s A-People portal and outlines the most efficient path to success, along with key milestones to implement RPA. Customers are given a detailed map to guide them through their automation journey, complete with step-by-step instructions and links to resources to help them achieve maximum value quickly.
There’s also the “Citizen Developer Role in Automation 360” that offers a dedicated software license for organizations to leverage business subject matter experts to create and run bots on their own desktops, whilst still providing automation oversight. With it, automation centres can maintain control over their Automation 360 platform whilst allowing citizen developers to build, use, and share automation within guardrails set by administrators.
Related to the 360 platofrm is the “A+ Accelerator Citizen Development Program”, which features a series of turnkey professional services to prepare automation leaders to embrace citizen development by helping them establish federated operating policies, procedures, and standards to confidently expand automation across their business.
Finally, the “Citizen Developer Practitioner Training” offers online and live, virtual instructor-led training for citizen developers with minimal coding experience, enabling them to learn how to improve their own productivity by building bots to automate tasks.
