Automation Anywhere Smart Adapters to Facilitate Fast Scaling for Enterprise Automation

New offering ensures process continuity as applications upgrade or change

Automation Anywhere, a pacesetting provider of automation software capable of automating virtually anything, today announced the general availability of Smart Adapters, a new product feature of Automation Anywhere Enterprise that helps organizations scale automation efforts more rapidly.

Using Smart Adapters, IT teams can essentially build unique reusable automation building blocks that ensure automated processes work, even as applications upgrade or change. The adapters grab automation information present in tasks using either visual capture or application APIs, and become commands for common processes such as authentication or file downloading. Those commands can then be dropped into automation scripts for a wide variety of processes, making them easier to develop, manage, and maintain for both business users and IT teams.

“We’ve all heard that one of the benefits of using automation software is the opportunity for organizations to scale. Smart Adapter Technology truly delivers on that promise as the practical way to make rapid scaling possible,” said Abhijit Kakhandiki, VP, Products at Automation Anywhere. “For companies looking to implement an automation strategy and foster a continuous cycle of automation, Smart Adapters will be integral not only to building automated processes, but also to ensuring ongoing ROI in every area of the organization that automation touches.”

Billed as being “user-friendly and IT approved,” Smart Adapters let business users build automated tasks that meet IT requirements and won’t compromise systemic integrity. By automating with adapters, organizations can control automation creation and dissemination without decelerating automation efforts.

In addition to facilitating fast adjustments to automated processes, Smart Adapters come equipped with app resilience technology which makes the adapters themselves easy to update when needed.

Automation Anywhere provides robotic process automation (RPA) software that enables organizations to automate virtually any computer-based process, allowing them to focus instead on value-added work. The introduction of Smart Adapters is a critical component to Automation Anywhere’s single-platform approach to enterprise automation, wherein organizations can develop a strategic, pragmatic approach to automating and managing processes, crowdsourcing new automation opportunities, and defining processes via visual documentation.
