UiPath named Microsoft partner at FORWARD 5

UiPath has been named a Microsoft preferred partner for enterprise automation.

The announcement came at the UiPath FORWARD 5 conference held in Las Vegas this week, alongside news of several updates to UiPath services that aim to offer a full spectrum of business productivity enhancements across enterprise-wide and individual user automation pursuits.

The partnership will allow low-code and no-code deployment of unattended software robots quickly on the Microsoft Cloud, without large infrastructure implementation, automating business processes and aiming to save hundreds of hours of labor. More than 80 best-in-class integrations have been developed by the robotic process automation (RPA) vendor, available out of the box for joint UiPath and Microsoft customers.

FORWARD 5 also revealed further product developments to the UiPath platform, including features for process and data mining to identify and action areas in business workflows with the most to gain from automation. A Clipboard AI feature is set to pave the way to new unstructured document, image, email, web and excel data scraping abilities, while Apps 2.0 claims to allow developers and business users even more flexibility to low-code custom automation projects that reach across technology stacks.

Key UiPath platform offerings such as Automation Cloud, Process Mining and Test Manager are now available on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, and full integration with the Microsoft Power platform is expected by early 2023.

“UiPath offers that unique platform where people can deal with the same set of technologies, both for personal and enterprise automation,” said Daniel Dines co-CEO of UiPath, “We are choosing Microsoft Azure Cloud and it’s a proud moment for me to announce the partnership, UiPath is perhaps the largest company ever built on the Microsoft platform.”

Scott Guthrie, executive vice president of cloud and AI at Microsoft said, “Customer success is what both Microsoft and UiPath are very focused on. I am excited to announce that UiPath is now a preferred partner for enterprise automation and Microsoft. As part of our strategic partnership, Microsoft and UiPath are committed to helping our joint customers harness market-leading integrations to increase productivity and accelerate business value. We’re deeply committed to this partnership and optimistic about the tremendous opportunity.”
