San Jose, Calif.-based robotic process automation provider Automation Anywhere announced it has launched what it claims is the world’s first purely “cloud-native” RPA platform. The company said accessing a web-based service will enable enterprises to access RPA at a lower cost and with less complexity than other options.
“As technologies evolve, they reach an inflection point and to go further you must make important meaningful departures from what everyone else is doing,” said Mihir Shukla, CEO and Co-founder, Automation Anywhere. “Enterprise A2019 is that dramatic departure, with a refreshing, instant-on user experience that eliminates the friction many companies still experience in building, deploying and scaling bots. Beginning today, users can log on to the platform from any web browser, dramatically increasing the speed of deploying RPA while decreasing the time in which companies derive compelling business value.”
Multiple RPA providers have cloud-based offerings and are marketing RPA-as-a-service capability.
