Blue Prism, recently acquired by Vista Equity Partners, has partnered with over 200 academic institutions across the globe, within 18 months, as part of its successful Academia Program. By closely supporting institutions throughout each partnership, the Academia Program is able to address the ever-widening digital skills gap between education and industry by providing training in Blue Prism’s innovative, AI-enabled enterprise-scale intelligent automation software.
Blue Prism’s success is exemplified by The Ministry of Education in India, which Blue Prism will be working with to train over 500,000 students in intelligent automation technologies by 2025 via a virtual internship program. These students, and others like them across the globe, will have the opportunity to gain employment opportunities as a result of acquiring in-demand, highly desirable skills.
For instructors at academic institutions, the program delivers authorized Blue Prism courses in a variety of settings. Students can jump-start their intelligent automation career with coursework through a global network of colleges and universities, via online certification opportunities, hands-on labs, and other Blue Prism learning resources.
Post-education, professionals, and businesses that operate Blue Prism’s AI-enabled enterprise intelligent automation software can benefit from the additional support of the Blue Prism Community. This comprehensive platform enables users to share best practices, knowledge, and insights around Blue Prism and RPA and is available to help individuals along every step of their RPA journey.
”We’re at the early stage of addressing a massive global skills shift to narrow the gap in RPA and intelligent automation capabilities over the coming years. The partnerships that grow from our University Academia Program will seed the next generation of innovators, disruptors, and digital business leaders. It will help meet the growing demand for intelligent automation skills and equip future business and IT leaders to capture the benefits of these innovative technologies – for their employees, customers, and communities.”
