What is connected-RPA?

Blue Prism's connected-RPA Platform is an intelligent automation ecosystem comprised of advanced technologies, and a community of experts, researchers and providers that enables your people to create and customize innovative automations for unique tasks.

Our Approach

Our connected-RPA platform is:


Business-led, so anyone can innovate

The most successful enterprises innovate and deliver value across all areas of the business. Our goal is to empower the operations side of your business with code-optional AI and automation technologies that can bring their new ideas and outcomes to life. With robust, code-free automation, easy web service support and drag-and-drop intelligent automation skills, we’re delivering meaningful business-led outcomes.


Technology-controlled—governed by IT teams and capable of supporting scale

Expanding the number of technological touchpoints across the organization increases security risks. Yet, to remain agile and competitive in the marketplace, companies need the ability to securely surrender control of automation technology to operational leaders throughout the enterprise. To do so confidently and compliantly, you need an automation platform that is easy to use, yet still strictly adheres to all compliance and security standards, regardless of your industry. With Veracode accreditation for security, segregated environments for private or collaborated automations, secure web service integration for trust & operability, shared licensing and more, we provide simplicity with governance to support scale.



It takes more than one technology to become a digital enterprise. Building an ad hoc ecosystem on your own would require a tremendous IT effort that most organizations don’t have the resources to build, support and govern. You need a solution that not only allows you to easily build and deploy a Digital Workforce, but also securely connects it to the rest of your staff, your processes and systems, as well as third-party technologies that can help your business grow.

When you use Blue Prism's connected-RPA, you create a solid foundation for intelligent automation that is scalable and sustainable. You create a platform for change.
