Automation Anywhere has tabbed Oct. 7 as Innovation Day and will host a virtual event providing information and education on the latest trends and issues in the RPA and intelligent automation space. The event, which is accessible by registering at the Automation Anywhere website, will be a mix of live and on-demand online sessions covering topics like using RPA in the front or back office, scaling your RPA program, measuring bot performance, cloud delivery and more.
The San Jose, Calif.-based RPA technology provider said the event will also feature groundbreaking technology and RPA Today got an early look at a major announcement. The company is launching a smart digital assistant called AARI (Automation Anywhere Robotic Interface). The company compares AARI, which will be available through its new Enterprise A2019 platform, to digital assistants like Siri and Alexa in that it says it will simplify interactions between humans and RPA bots.
“AARI completes our vision to ‘automate automations’ by creating a digital assistant for the new era of work – enabling anyone to automate from anywhere at any time with a simple interface that can manage automations,” said Mihir Shukla, CEO and co-founder of Automation Anywhere. “This technology democratizes RPA so that anyone in an organization can participate in the automation process.”
