Automation Anywhere, a global leader in Robotic Process Automation (RPA), today introduced a new RPA Maturity Assessment tool, along with expanded training and other resources, to simplify how automation teams, business leaders, and citizen developers adopt, deploy, and scale intelligent automation.
The new maturity assessment tool provides a customized report that identifies opportunities to scale intelligent automation more quickly and effectively. It also evaluates program maturity and provides recommendations to improve RPA programs by uncovering and eliminating barriers to adoption.
The free tool assesses program maturity in four key areas: vision and strategy, process and measurement, organization and people, and architecture and technology.
Automation Anywhere today also introduced a powerful suite of learning and support resources for the company’s cloud-native, AI-powered Automation 360 platform, which according to global research firm IDC has accelerated the deployment of nearly three million software bots and achieved an industry-leading 54% market share in the cloud RPA market.
These resources enable customer success at every step of their automation journey and include:
• Customer Journey Map and Guide, accessible by customers on Automation Anywhere’s A-People portal, which outlines the most efficient path to success, along with key milestones to implement RPA. Customers are given a detailed map to guide them through their automation journey, complete with step-by-step instructions and links to resources to help them achieve maximum value quickly.
• Citizen Developer Role in Automation 360 that offers a dedicated software license for organizations to confidently leverage business subject matter experts to create and run bots on their own desktops, while still providing automation oversight. With this new role automation centers of excellence can maintain full control over their Automation 360 platform while empowering citizen developers to build, use, and share automation within guardrails set by administrators.
• A+ Accelerator Citizen Development Program that features a series of turnkey professional services to prepare automation leaders to embrace citizen development by helping them establish federated operating policies, procedures, and standards to confidently expand automation across their business.
• Citizen Developer Practitioner Training that offers both online and live, virtual instructor-led self-paced training for citizen developers with minimal coding experience, enabling them to learn how to improve their own productivity by building bots to automate tasks.
“Our vision is to help every organization focus on more meaningful, creative endeavors that delight customers and grow the business. They can only do that by deferring manual, repetitive tasks and processes to software bots, freeing up time for innovation,” said Prince Kohli, CTO of Automation Anywhere. “With these new resources introduced today, we can empower every employee across the organization – from automation leaders to citizen developers – to leverage RPA, helping us move closer to realizing this goal.”
