Blue Prism has announced the close of its acquisition of UK based Thoughtonomy. Thoughtonomy, now a Blue Prism company, will operate as a business unit led by its founder and CEO, Terry Walby.
Both companies will work to enable an on- demand Digital Workforce accessible to all, by combining the strengths of Blue Prism’s connected-RPA platform and Thoughtonomy’s award winning Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) capabilities.
This integration gives enterprises a way to access and leverage fully integrated AI technologies such as computer vision, Natural Language Processing (NLP) and machine learning to automate mission critical procedures from back office to front office. This will enable greater operational agility allowing customers to accelerate automation projects more easily to drive improved productivity and customer experiences, without needing to set up a dedicated infrastructure to support their program.
“Thoughtonomy gives our Digital Workforce added cloud, management and deployment capabilities,” says Alastair Bathgate, Co-founder and CEO, Blue Prism. “These new capabilities will accelerate the reach and value our digital workers provide, especially on Microsoft Azure. We’re bringing Blue Prism to the world and Thoughtonomy is part of our push into mid-tier enterprises and key industry verticals.”
Thoughtonomy further supports Blue Prism’s cloud strategy by giving customers an easy to manage SaaS offering running on Microsoft Azure. Customers can easily leverage ready-to use channel interfaces such as chatbots and web-forms coupled with Thoughtonomy’s integrated AI-enabled digital workforce manager, IADA®, help companies scale their automation strategy at speed.
“This acquisition gives us the foundation to deliver the next generation of intelligent automation capabilities,” says Terry Walby, CEO and Founder of Thoughtonomy. “Together we immediately provide the most comprehensive portfolio in the market, but our ambitions are just taking flight. We will broaden and simplify access to the most advanced Digital Workforce on the planet. We are just getting started.”
