New best of breed joint solution seamlessly integrates analytics automation and robotic process automation to drive faster processes and better business outcomes
LONDON, AUSTIN TX & IRVINE, CA – July 28, 2021 - Blue Prism® (AIM: PRSM), a global pioneer and market leader in intelligent automation and Alteryx, Inc., (NYSE: AYX) the analytics automation company, today announced their premier Blue Prism Technology Alliance Partnership (TAP). Using these technologies jointly will enable customers to automate data driven processes at scale, giving them critical data and insights needed to make smarter decisions, faster.
The companies also introduced a bi-directional integration between platforms. Blue Prism developers can include an Alteryx analytic process within their RPA driven processes via the Alteryx VBO for Blue Prism Process Studio, adding robust analytic and machine learning intelligence to their digital workers’ actions. The Alteryx VBO for Blue Prism Process Studio is available on the Blue Prism Digital Exchange. In addition, the Blue Prism Connector for Alteryx Designer empowers data analysts and data scientists to trigger digital workers within their Alteryx analytic workflows, enabling retrieval of data and delivery of outcomes to systems across the enterprise. The Blue Prism Connector for Alteryx Designer is available on the Alteryx Analytics Gallery. Leveraging Alteryx and Blue Prism jointly creates an end-to-end, analytics, data science, and business process automation solution that enables organizations to create and derive value from all data – whether structured or unstructured, no matter where it resides.
“This joint solution empowers our customers to accelerate digital transformation and compete more effectively. We are proud to partner with Alteryx to help enterprise leaders, automators, and data workers achieve ROI far more quickly and effectively through combining our Blue Prism enterprise-scale automation solution with Alteryx’s innovative no-code analytics platform,” said Patrick Finn, president & general manager, Americas, Blue Prism.
A large U.S. fast food restaurant chain uses the Alteryx/Blue Prism joint solution to reduce time spent processing tax data. The company’s 1099-K prep time has been reduced from 10 hours to 10 seconds. Blue Prism works at both ends – mining data across the business for the Alteryx analytic automation and then picking up the heavy lifting of administrative tasks such as emailing out results and updates to stakeholders. The company uses the time and resources saved to then investigate the results of the data analysis to look for business opportunities, focusing on its overarching business goals such as improving customer engagement and increasing revenue.
The Alteryx platform automates every step of analytics, including data preparation, blending, reporting, predictive analytics and data science. But the extraction or input of data from hard-to-reach legacy applications or applications without an API is a manual and laborious task. Blue Prism’s native integration with Alteryx gives customers full interoperability between platforms to facilitate this process, giving organizations clear access to important data from across the business. Working seamlessly together, the solution provides customers the ability to aggregate, enrich and analyze data from anywhere, driving end-to-end process orchestration across all data and operational procedures within the enterprise.
“Alteryx analytics automation embeds intelligent decisioning and powers your people to deliver faster, better business outcomes”, said Nitin Brahmankar, global vice president, ISV & ecosystem partnerships, Alteryx.“Pairing Alteryx with Blue Prism’s intelligent automation improves the quality of data extracted, enabling customers to use data automation across the entire enterprise, facilitating smarter and faster decisions. This is critical for future-focused businesses that want to remain agile, productive and competitive.”
