Blue Prism and Celonis Join Forces to Accelerate Enterprise Automation Initiatives

Market Leaders Partner to Drive Digital Transformations for Customers with Combined Process Analytics and Intelligent Automation Solutions

MUNICH, LONDON, NEW YORK and AUSTIN — September 12, 2018 — Blue Prism (AIM: PRSM), provider of the world’s most successful Digital Workforce, and Celonis, the leader in operationalizing process change for business transformation, today announced a partnership, which will see both companies jointly market their respective solutions. The partnership will help customers accelerate their digital transformation by automating mission critical business processes while providing them with analytical insights to increase productivity, drive operational efficiencies, develop better customer experiences and deliver new services.

Joint customers like Siemens are using Celonis to deliver visibility into how processes are running, allowing them to take a guided approach to Blue Prism’s RPA implementation and monitoring.

Blue Prism provides enterprises with unprecedented capacity to automate and scale mission-critical work processes. That’s because unlike Robotic Process Automation (RPA) offerings based on scripting technology which are prone to errors and re-recording, Blue Prism provides a business-led and highly secure digital workforce platform. Leveraging proven artificial intelligence (AI) and cognitive services from the world’s most innovative companies through a comprehensive ecosystem, Blue Prism’s Digital Workforce delivers flexibility, long term value and true operational agility.

Process Mining is used to gain visibility into existing process flows with a detailed analysis of process metrics. By combining process mining with RPA, businesses can effectively overcome many of the challenges inherent to any automation initiative. With Celonis, companies can quickly audit current processes to highlight actions and activities with the highest automation potential, and subsequently build, test, and deploy RPA in a faster and more controlled fashion. After Blue Prism has been deployed, organizations can leverage Celonis to continuously monitor and manage all interactions within their business processes to operationalize change.

By combining Blue Prism with Celonis enterprises can:

  • Evaluate business processes with instant visualization of as-is processes
  • Identify process automation opportunities with highest business impact and potential for ROI
  • Understand RPA business cases based on company data
  • Reduce project risk with complete process transparency at all phases of the RPA implementation
  • Measure, sustain, and adapt their digitized processes over time to further drive operational efficiency.

“Our partners like Celonis are helping bring about a sea change in the way customers think about automation. Together we demonstrate the power of automation when coupled with insights that can help generate long-term sustainable business value and an undeniable ROI,” said Colin Redbond, Head of Technology Strategy for Blue Prism. “Working with Celonis, we share a common vision for enabling enterprises to drive new innovations by taking advantage of the latest automation capabilities inherent in our intelligent digital workforce, while ensuring that it is done in a sustainable, scalable way.”

“Business leaders know that successful automation initiatives drive top line value, and bottom line profits, while mitigating risk,” said Marc Kinast, VP Global Business Development, Celonis. “We’ve seen firsthand that organizations often struggle to understand the maturity of their processes, and to decide which processes are standardized enough to benefit from RPA. Process Mining provides a much smoother and more controlled ‘process-first’ approach to automation, and this approach enables customers to efficiently and effectively transform business operations with powerful analytics and intelligent automation.”

Blue Prism complements the workplace with an elastic, multi-faceted and multi-talented digital workforce, helping organizations automate and scale business processes via AI, machine learning, intelligent automation and sentiment analysis. This digital workforce, being utilized by more than 1,000 organizations worldwide across 42 vertical industries, eliminates vendor lock-in by providing access to the best of breed AI technologies and Intelligent Automation skills through the company’s Technology Alliance Program (TAP) that transforms how organizations can leverage technology to deliver true operational agility.
