Automation Anywhere, a leader in intelligent automation that puts artificial intelligence (AI) to work across every aspect of an organisation, has entered into a multi-year Strategic Collaboration Agreement (SCA) with Amazon Web Services (AWS). The SCA enhances Automation Anywhere’s industry-leading expertise in generative AI and intelligent automation to boost enterprise productivity and power business growth, in addition to offering Automation Anywhere customers greater choice, flexibility and reliability for their generative AI deployments.
The company also announced general availability of its integrations with Amazon Bedrock, a fully managed service that makes foundation models (FMs) from leading AI companies accessible via an API to build and scale generative AI applications, and Amazon SageMaker, which helps companies build, train, and deploy machine learning (ML) models for any use case with fully managed infrastructure, tools, and workflows.
The collaboration will make it easier for customers to leverage the full breadth of Automation Anywhere’s intelligent automation capabilities through their AWS investments and streamline go-to-market opportunities between the two companies. The SCA also enables Automation Anywhere and AWS to deliver more value to customers through a go-to-market and co-selling programme, as well as the exploration and development of new industry-specific automation solutions that will power growth and innovation in vertical markets.
“Since we first put our cloud-native Automation Success Platform on AWS, we have long-shared a mutual vision with AWS to enable every company with the potential to transform their business through an open approach to the powerful combination of generative AI and intelligent automation,” said Adi Kuruganti, Chief Product Officer, Automation Anywhere. “In the next phase of our collaboration, we’re excited to work with AWS to leverage the full power of generative AI to develop targeted, industry-specific solutions and completely reshape and improve the way companies work across their organisation.”
“The SCA with Automation Anywhere reinforces our shared commitment to making it easy, practical, and cost-effective for customers to use generative AI capabilities across their business,” said Chris Grusz, Managing Director of Technology Partnerships at AWS. “We’re pleased to support Automation Anywhere in the development of generative AI-powered tools that enable customers to boost productivity and power innovation.”
“We have long benefited from the cloud-native automation solutions offered by Automation Anywhere and powered by AWS, and we’re pleased how they’ve helped transform our business over the years,” said Dev Gulati, Head of Automation, Columbia Sportswear Company. “We’re excited for the potential of this expanded collaboration and the opportunities it unlocks for us to utilise the power of generative AI and automation to grow our business.”
Automation Anywhere continues to work with AWS to build and deploy generative AI powered solutions in customer experience, document processing and contact centre intelligence using Amazon SageMaker, Amazon Bedrock and other AWS AI/ML services, further strengthening the go-to-market relationship.
