We are proud to partner with Automation Anywhere to help businesses quickly deploy and scale RPA capabilities on Google Cloud, and to address business challenges with solutions specially designed for industries.”
Thomas Kurian, CEO, Google Cloud
“By partnering with Google Cloud, we can help organizations leverage intelligent automation capabilities at a massive, global scale, and dramatically decrease the amount of time that teams spend on their most common, repetitive business tasks. Intelligent Automation can be an important asset in digital transformation, particularly as global enterprises adapt to a new reality of distributed work. We’re delighted to work closely with Google Cloud to support business transformation with cloud and automation.”
Mihir Shukla, CEO and Co-founder, Automation Anywhere
“Cloud competitors AWS and Microsoft also provide RPA tools, but most RPA implementations are heavily reliant on subject matter experts and service teams. All in all, if you are an Azure or AWS customer, that wouldn’t shift you to becoming a Google customer. But it might stop a Google customer moving to another stack.”
