Blue Prism, a global leader in the Robotic Process Automation (RPA) market, will showcase its comprehensive artificial intelligence Digital Exchange (DX) at AI Expo Africa this week, setting in place the foundation for South African businesses to begin their journey into the era of AI. The DX can be likened to an ‘app store’ for artificial intelligence (AI) products.
“Our vision for connected-RPA is about giving the power of creativity to an organization’s people, while maintaining control and connecting innovations together, so individual work adds up to a far more powerful whole,” explained Alastair Bathgate, CEO and co-founder at Blue Prism.
He added that with most South African organisations now at the start of their AI journey, they face a significant challenge in assessing the hundreds of AI technologies available, and determining which of them are right for their organisation. At some point, they will need to ‘plumb’ the technology into the organisation’s systems – even to run a POC – but the IT department does not always have the bandwidth or resources to test or implement the myriad solutions on the market.
To solve these problems, Blue Prism has created the Digital Exchange – an ecosystem of key AI companies, large and small, that offer new and disruptive AI technology. Blue Prism partners with AI stakeholders to undertake all integration work and make their technology available via the Digital Exchange. The DX takes the burden of integration away from IT, providing all the information they need to know: type of technology, what it does, demos, customer use cases and the ability to download straight onto the Blue Prism platform and start using it.
Aiming to make AI consumable for organisations, Blue Prism can act as the digital operating system connecting back office systems, data, people and new emerging technology such as AI.
Blue Prism is a pioneer, innovator and leader in the RPA market, fields a lab of international PhDs to develop innovations such as the intelligent Digital Workforce, called connected-RPA, which is currently in use in more than 1 500 global customers to securely automate at scale and perform mission critical processes either in the cloud or on premises.
