Automation Anywhere and Google Cloud have announced a new multi-year partnership in a bid to generate industry solutions that combine Google Cloud artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technology with Automation Anywhere’s cloud-native RPA capabilities.

The collaboration will see Automation Anywhere migrate Automation 360, its web-based automation platform, to Google Cloud, and become the company’s preferred RPA partner.

Together, the two companies will mutually develop AI- and RPA-powered solutions geared toward industry specific use cases, with a focus on financial services, supply chains, healthcare and life sciences, telecommunications, retail, and the public sector. The partnership will also bring RPA capabilities to multiple Google Cloud products, and closely align go-to-market teams to help global businesses scale RPA capabilities.

From May 2021, Automation Anywhere solutions will be made available in the Google Cloud Marketplace, making it deployable across cloud, hybrid, and on-premise environments.

Mihir Shukla, CEO and co-founder of Automation Anywhere, said: “By partnering with Google Cloud, we can help organisations 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.”

Thomas Kurian, CEO of Google Cloud, said: “As businesses increasingly run in the cloud, RPA provides the means to streamline processes across both cloud-native applications and legacy, on-premise systems – ultimately helping employees spend less time on repetitive tasks and more time supporting business-critical projects. 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.”
