Automation Anywhere Releases
February 21, 2020
Anywhere released the world's first integrated artificial intelligence
(AI)-driven process discovery solution that discovers business processes
and with one-click creates bots to automate them.
Automation Anywhere Discovery Bot uses AI and machine learning to
automatically capture and analyze user actions to uncover common,
repetitive process steps as employees navigate between business
applications. It then prioritizes automation opportunities by potential
return on investment (ROI) and develops RPA bots – accelerating the
process automation journey for organizations.
Research by Automation Anywhere shows that nearly 80 percent of manual,
repetitive front-and-back office business tasks that can be automated,
remain undiscovered. Traditional, manual process discovery methods are
slow and time consuming and the ROI is uncertain.
The new, intelligent, automatic process discovery technology – built on
top of the company's cloud-native intelligent automation platform –
leverages years of investment in RPA, AI and machine learning to
increase the pace of process discovery and automation. As a zero-client
solution, it can be easily deployed across the enterprise and allows
business users, IT and developers to collaborate via the same web-based
interface and reduce the time spent understanding business process
Gartner estimates that "by 2023, 50 percent of new RPA scripts will be
dynamically generated," through process discovery technology, and "by
2024, organizations will lower operational costs by 30 percent percent

2020, RPA adoption continues to transcend other technologies as
organizations aggressively pursue digital transformation initiatives.
However, at the same time, customers struggle to understand which
processes they should even automate," said Prince Kohli, Chief
Technology Officer, Automation Anywhere. "With Discovery Bot, they gain
a comprehensive understanding of all business processes, can prioritize
their automation backlog, and with a single click, create and deploy new
bots for repeatable processes, five times faster than with traditional
"A lot of time is typically spent in manually understanding and
documenting the as-is processes and activities. Consequently,
identifying the right automation use cases is one of the key challenges
that enterprises face, especially when trying to scale-up adoption,"
said Amardeep Modi, Practice Director at Everest Group. "The process
discovery solution from Automation Anywhere could potentially help
enterprises automatically discover automation opportunities and
accelerate their automation journey."
Discovery Bot is available now to early access customers and will be
generally available in the coming quarters.
