Additional features, including ready-to use channel interfaces such as chat bots and web-forms coupled with Thoughtonomy’s integrated AI-enabled digital workforce manager, IADA®, help companies scale their automation strategy at speed.

Thoughtonomy’s intellectual property and embedded Marketplace will also extend Blue Prism’sDigital Exchange DX capabilities, an intelligent automation marketplace comprising of customers, technology and channel partners, while enhancing the company’s overall push to deliver RPA services with leading cloud services providers such as AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google and IBM.

This combination of capabilities will provide enterprises with even greater flexibility for their automation projects offering them the ability to choose between SaaS or dedicated infrastructure. Together both companies will continue to build out the strongest partner network in the industry aimed at driving up customer adoption in key market verticals including financial services, telecom, insurance, retail, healthcare and pharmaceuticals, professional services, energy, utilities, public sector and outsourcing providers. This also includes commitments to support partner enablement, sales, pre-sales and implementation on a global scale.
