Automation Anywhere and DataRobot Partner on AI Solutions for Digital Transformation

12 December 2018

Automation Anywhere®, the leader in Robotic Process Automation (RPA), today announced its partnership with DataRobot, the pioneering architect of automated machine learning. The integration with DataRobot's platform extends Automation Anywhere's cognitive automation capabilities to include decision-making using automated machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI).

Automation Anywhere's digital workforce platform allows any business user to build software bots to automate repetitive work across any industry. The combination of RPA, cognitive and analytics technologies already allows automation of complex business processes that involve unstructured data embedded in documents and emails. Machine learning models can be trained using this data and applied to real-world business problems to automatically make decisions and recommend actionable outcomes to the user.

For instance, a pre-trained insurance claim processing bot available for download from the Automation Anywhere Bot Store can seamlessly collect the insurance claim submission, extract decision making data from documents using computer vision, and leverage pre-trained fraud detection models created with DataRobot to recommend claims for approval and flag potentially fraudulent claims.

Enterprises today collect vast amounts of data for business processes such as loan applications, insurance claims, and medical records. The combination of Automation Anywhere and DataRobot allows enterprises to further democratize and accelerate digital transformation.

"Automation Anywhere is already leading the category in providing cognitive automation solutions to business users," said Peter Meechan, Chief Corporate Development Officer at Automation Anywhere. "By combining our solutions with DataRobot, we greatly increase the depth and breadth of use cases that can be automated using the industry's most widely adopted Digital Workforce platform."

"DataRobot incorporates the knowledge, experience, and best practices of the world's leading data scientists to deliver unmatched levels of automation, accuracy, transparency, and collaboration with advanced machine learning models," said Seann Gardiner, SVP of Business Development at DataRobot. "The partnership between DataRobot and Automation Anywhere brings together our common focus to give enterprises the tools to fully democratize and combine AI with business process automation. In addition, we see RPA developers as having the perfect skill set to leverage DataRobot and become one of the earliest and largest populations of AI developers."

"We are now offering full-fledged AI model lifecycle management from creation to model selection to production, extending our solutions to both data scientists and business users," said Abhijit Kakhandiki, Senior VP, Products and Engineering at Automation Anywhere. "With the convenience of AutoML, users of all skill levels can now create and deploy AI in conjunction with RPA to deliver rapid ROI."
