Automation Anywhere Unveils New Platform, Microsoft Partnership

Automation Anywhere opened its annual Imagine partner summit this week by unveiling an updated platform with new GenAI capability and the ability to create and deploy AI Agents that can manage more complex tasks and enable the automation of more business processes.

Every enterprise today is facing the same inescapable growth and productivity mandate to work smarter, not harder — to be more productive, more efficient, and more innovative,” Mihir Shukla, CEO and co-founder of Automation Anywhere said during the two-day event in Austin. “Automation is the foundation that’s gotten us partway there. But AI Agent-powered automation is the breakthrough that will take us beyond — to automate the seemingly impossible, create a new operating model for business, and drive enterprise transformation with stunning results.”

Shukla said custom AI Agents have the ability to learn from enterprise data and take action across systems, speeding up processes by as much as 90 percent. The company also claims built-in security controls will monitor and audit agents to ensure compliance and limit hallucinations.

While the company put it in a separate announcement, a new partnership with Microsoft and its Azure OpenAI Service is powering many of the changes to Automation Anywhere’s platform.

“The combination of Azure OpenAI Service and our new AI Studio will enable organizations to automate what was never possible before,” said Adi Kuruganti, Chief Product Officer, Automation Anywhere. “This initiative with Microsoft is a continuation of our long-running collaboration in AI. We wanted to partner with the leading AI platform to maximize impact for our joint customers.”

The company also named its Global Partners of the Year at the Imagine event.
