Founded in 1969, Software AG is an enterprise software company with over 10,000 enterprise customers in over 70 countries. The company is the second-largest software vendor in Germany and the seventh-largest in Europe.
Recently, Software AG has entered into a collaboration agreement with Automation Anywhere, which will make scalable automation achievable for more businesses. Software AG’s ARIS platform will bookend Automation Anywhere RPA with process mining and process management. This will improve the discovery of automation opportunities and then the management of automated processes.
Automation begins with process mining, to identify processes that require automation. ARIS process mining helps reduce bottlenecks, such as lots of activity landing in one inbox, as well activities that unnecessarily resource-intensive, for instance where humans might need to review lengthy documents for basic information. Too many projects miss this step and automate processes unnecessarily. Task mining tools – such as Discovery Bot from Automation Anywhere – then analyze how employees interact with these processes to learn how best to automate them. Once the robotic automation has been designed and rolled out, ARIS process management helps to monitor how effective those robots are. This helps make sure that the new ‘robotic workers’ are up to date with the right ‘skills’.
“The substantial benefits of intelligent automation technology are becoming more significant for organizations to increase productivity and enhance business resiliency, so it’s important to have the right tools to manage them from beginning to end. We’re excited to collaborate with Software AG, together we can deliver critical tools that organizations can leverage to streamline workflows and maintain business continuity.”
