Blue Prism boosts Digital Workforce capabilities

Blue Prism has announced the availability of its latest connected-RPA offering, Enterprise V6.6. This latest release of Blue Prism’s Digital Workforce is designed to automate more strategically and at scale.

The end-to-end automation platform  includes access to digital workers from the cloud as well as Blue Prism’s “app store”, the Digital Exchange (DX) marketplace, where companies like ABBYY, Appian, Google and others have posted hundreds of assets.

The DX currently offers more than 150 Google APIs, so users can add intelligent automation capabilities to their digital workers on the fly.

“For RPA to reach its full potential, simplifying how this technology is delivered, consumed and integrated with existing enterprise systems and standards must be front and centre,” says Maureen Fleming, Program Vice President, Intelligent Process Automation at IDC.

“This extends to supporting secure RPA cloud services and making it simple for end users to experiment, deploy and scale their automation projects.”

Blue Prism now offers free on-premises and cloud trials of its connected-RPA offering that includes government-level security support. For on-premises trials, a database setup wizard and simplified licensing, along with a “getting started tour” as part of v6.6, simplifies the first-time user experience.

Blue Prism’s Data Gateways now offer more functionality, enabling users to better manage how much data they generate with Blue Prism and how to best maintain the data. Enhancements cover three key areas:

  • Data Gateways re-attempt: Information is retained and stored even when Data Gateways is unable to send data to an end point.
  • Work queue analysis snapshots: Users can send work queue snapshots to external endpoints—alongside session logs, published dashboards and custom object data. This increases the data that can be used in external reporting tools and data storage systems.
  • Database maintenance and archiving improvements: Parts of the session log archiving mechanism that transfers data between the server and client have been changed to split large data packets. This reduces the amount of information stored within the Blue Prism database, so users can maintain databases more effectively.

“We’re delivering simplified access, either on-premises or in the cloud, to our connected-RPA offering making it more ubiquitous and easier to consume,” says Dave Moss, CTO and Co-Founder of Blue Prism.
