Version 11 of Automation Anywhere Enterprise Now Available, with Enhancements Including Workload Management, Citrix Automation and Bank-Grade Security

SAN JOSE, Calif. – Dec. 11, 2017 Automation Anywhere, the global leader in Robotic Process Automation (RPA), today announced the most significant upgrade in the company’s history to its flagship Digital Workforce Platform, Automation Anywhere Enterprise. Building on a robust enterprise RPA platform recognized as the most widely deployed in the industry, version 11 delivers enhancements in scalability, security and cognitive automation. This latest version has been architected from the ground-up to meet the demanding requirements of both IT and business users in banking, finance, insurance, healthcare, manufacturing, logistics and other industries.

“Within the next five years, it is our vision that robotic process automation will be as ubiquitous and as essential as electricity,” said Mihir Shukla, CEO and co-founder of Automation Anywhere. “A digital workforce platform, therefore, must be just as reliable as the power grid and just as easy to deploy as flipping a switch. Automation Anywhere Enterprise version 11 is a major step in this digital transformation, enabling enterprises to automate business processes. This includes not only automating repetitive tasks, but using AI technology along with predictive analytics to deliver even greater business value. With input from our large customer base and partner community, we have engineered a new standard for digital workforce platforms with this latest release.”

Automation Anywhere is the only provider that offers RPA, cognitive and analytics technology to enable end-to-end automation of business processes for global, enterprise organizations. The Automation Anywhere Enterprise platform has already been deployed across 700 of the world’s largest companies, delivering 500,000 automated full-time equivalents that have saved hundreds of millions of hours of manual tasks.

“Automation Anywhere has enhanced its software by adding new features in areas such as workload management, automation lifecycle management, SLA-based automation, Citrix automation, and credential management as well as adding new data APIs,” said Sarah Burnett, vice president of analyst firm Everest Group. “These additions should appeal to enterprise users who are looking for higher operational and security capabilities in RPA software.”

Operational Scalability for the Modern Digital Enterprise

The new Automation Anywhere Enterprise release introduces significant updates to its open, highly adaptive and IT-acclaimed platform architecture, dramatically enhancing the enterprise-grade, rapid scalability that has been its hallmark.

“Release 11 represents a significant movement of the needle as it relates to ease of use, scaling, and analytics,” said James Manos, director, Robotic Process Automation at ISG. “The user interface brings the overall user experience to new levels and the enhanced security management capabilities of the credential vault demonstrate Automation Anywhere’s continued commitment to listening to its customers feedback and incorporating enhanced features and functionality in every release.”

Enhanced Security Capabilities for Greater Compliance and Control

Some of the most significant updates in AA Enterprise are in security, building on a solid foundation that already includes a credential vault, role-based access control, and encryption for data at rest and in motion. Enterprise 11 delivers enhanced capabilities for admins to set and enforce enterprise-wide security policies. Most importantly, segregation of duties and least-privilege access are the two pillars of the security framework.

The Most Reliable Citrix Automation

Citrix and similar security environments are image-based systems that do not lend themselves easily to automation. Automation Anywhere’s AISense applies significant AI capabilities in version 11 to deliver a solution that can automate any data.

AISense brings intelligent image recognition through computer vision and AI techniques for Citrix, Delphi, Flex and remote desktop environments. Since a bot is only allowed to use mouse clicks and keystrokes in a Citrix environment, choices are restricted to image-based automation, coordinate-based automation and OCR-based automation. Automation Anywhere’s AISense for Citrix scans the application image, identifies UI elements (such as labels and text boxes) and automatically creates all the UI objects. AI-powered automation intelligently creates the dynamic linking between these objects. AISense is agnostic to application changes and delivers complete automation even if the on-screen fields change position, the application changes colors, the zoom level is modified, or the screen resolution is updated.

Language Support for the Global Enterprise

To exceed the needs of global enterprises, Automation Anywhere Enterprise offers global language support including Double-Byte Character Set (DBCS) support.
