Information Services Group (ISG), a leading global technology research and advisory firm, said today it has been named a certified Robotic Process Automation (RPA) business partner of Blue Prism, a leading automation software developer.
ISG is one of only six firms to earn the distinction as part of Blue Prism's new ecosystem certification program designed to ensure quality delivery of transformational deployments for clients.
Interest in leveraging RPA to automate IT and business processes is soaring. The RPA market is expected to grow to more than $5 billion by 2020, from only $180 million in 2013, according to industry estimates.
"We are very proud to be one of the first companies to earn Blue Prism's certification as an RPA partner," said Chip Wagner, partner and president, ISG Business and Emerging Services. "This sends a powerful message to potential and current clients that ISG is the right choice to help them create a truly exciting and transformative RPA project that delivers quantum improvements in speed, quality and efficiency, along with tremendous ROI."
Members of the Blue Prism ecosystem are classified in three categories determined by their expertise and focus, so prospective clients can identify the appropriate partner and ecosystem members can be certain they have the resources and training required to deliver true digital transformation. The certification methodology is based on feedback from Blue Prism's enterprise customers and incorporates quantitative and qualitative criteria, including the number of developers trained in Blue Prism RPA, size and number of successful projects executed and customer satisfaction.
"As a certified member of the Blue Prism ecosystem certification program, ISG has received an important recognition from an industry leader in RPA software," said Paul Donaldson, ISG senior director, Robotic Process Automation. "ISG leverages Blue Prism's software platform to help clients create a digital workforce through rapid automation of manual, rules-based, back office administrative processes."
Blue Prism has more than 200 client organizations worldwide, with 100 percent of its business being delivered through channel partners, alliances and advisory firms such as ISG. Blue Prism's partner support ecosystem also features regular local and global customer forums and user groups, which drive Blue Prism's product roadmap, delivery and support methodologies and give customers and partners the opportunity to share best practices.
