Deloitte Catalyst Continues to Grow With Major Expansion Into the Robotics and Cognitive Automation Field

Four new firms will team with Deloitte in creating solutions for the digital workforce

Deloitte announced today a significant expansion of its Deloitte Catalyst innovation ecosystem with the addition of four firms that lead the market in robotics, cognitive automation or both.

The additions strengthen Deloitte’s Cognitive Advantage, a cognitive platform and suite of services that help companies navigate the shift to the cognitive era. Cognitive Advantage harnesses robotics to automate routine work and smart machines to augment human decision making, gain valuable insights and dramatically enhance customer engagement.

The firms joining Deloitte Catalyst — Automation Anywhere, Blue Prism, UiPath and WorkFusion — will help Deloitte develop a new generation of digital workforce solutions that combine leading advisory services with tools for today’s challenges. Deloitte has identifiedthis integration of services and technology as a trend that can extend automation to new areas of the enterprise.

“Automation Anywhere, Blue Prism, UiPath and WorkFusion have emerged as leaders in business process and cognitive automation,” said Craig Muraskin, managing director, Deloitte LLP, U.S. Innovation Group. “Their addition to Deloitte Catalyst strengthens the options that Deloitte brings to the marketplace under Cognitive Advantage.”

By harnessing the power of cognitive computing, Cognitive Advantage enables companies to achieve better outcomes by evolving to an insight-driven enterprise. The services include: robotics and cognitive automation to automate repeatable tasks to improve efficiency, quality and accuracy; cognitive insights to uncover hidden patterns and relationships to identify new opportunities for innovation; and cognitive engagement to drive customer actions by delivering hyper-personalization at scale.

“To help clients realize their cognitive potential, we are building our own cognitive assets as well as aligning with key firms in the cognitive ecosystem to bring leading capabilities that can enable the transformation of today’s Fortune 500 into AI-first enterprises,” said Rajeev Ronanki, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP and a leader for cognitive computing.

Commenting on its entry into Deloitte Catalyst, Mihir Shukla, chief executive officer and co-founder of Automation Anywhere, said “Deloitte Catalyst accelerates our joint reach to serve customers with our enterprise-grade Digital Workforce platform, comprising version 4.0 of our cognitive technologies and the industry’s first real-time robotic process automation (RPA) analytics platform. With the Catalyst program we are excited to bring new opportunities to our ecosystem of almost 10,000 certified RPA implementers.”

Alastair Bathgate, chief executive officer of Blue Prism, said “Deloitte Catalyst gives companies access to the innovations they need to embrace digital transformation. With Blue Prism’s RPA platform, organizations can successfully deploy a large-scale, multi-skilled digital workforce that ensures operational compliance and is secure and resilient.”

For Daniel Dines, chief executive officer, UiPath,“Deloitte Catalyst will be a great uplift to UiPath’s plan to develop new cognitive capabilities on top of our current enterprise solution. Intelligent RPA is ready to meet the digital exigencies of today’s businesses and make work more inspiring for people.”

And Max Yankelevich, chief executive officer, WorkFusion, said “Deloitte Catalyst will enhance our firm’s ability to develop solutions that help a business born analog to be reborn as digital from front to back office by combining RPA, AI-powered cognitive automation and chatbots.”
