BAE Systems, a noted contractor to militaries and government agencies around the world, is using experience gathered in those areas to offer robotic process automation services to the intelligence community. The U.K.-based company, with RPA partner UiPath, has launched its Robotic Operations Center (ROC) enabling organizations to automate repetitive tasks in data-rich environments at scale. BAE is touting its experience as a defense and intelligence contractor to provide RPA in a security-conscious way.

“The emphasis on security is driving a significant increase in the collection of data across the IT enterprise, giving analysts access to more data in greater detail than ever before. RPAs augment a human analyst’s capability by allowing them to focus on high-value tasks—rather than tedious and repetitive actions—leading to faster and better decision-making,” said Peder Jungck, vice president/general manager of Intelligence Solutions at BAE Systems. “The ROC streamlines IT operations, helping customers to take advantage of the vast sea of information to improve responsiveness while reducing cost and security risk.”

BAE spokeswoman Amber Moon told FedScoop that the initiative is not in response to any new contracts or task orders, but the service is a “major part” of services BAE Systems has with intelligence agencies.
