Alteryx, Inc., a provider of analytics automation software, and Blue Prism, an industry pioneer and market leader in intelligent automation announced their first Blue Prism Technology Alliance Partnership (TAP). The use of these technologies together provides customers with the data and analytics they need to make intelligent decisions, faster, because they can automate data-driven processes at scale.

Patrick Finn, president & general manager, Americas, Blue Prism, said, “This joint solution empowers our customers to accelerate digital transformation and compete more effectively. We are proud to partner with Alteryx to help enterprise leaders, automators, and data workers achieve breakthrough results through combining our Blue Prism enterprise-scale automation solution with Alteryx’s innovative no-code analytics platform.”

A bidirectional platform integration was also implemented by the companies. Using Alteryx Visual Business Objects (VBO) for Blue Prism Process Studio, Blue Prism developers can build RPA processes with Alteryx analytic processes. This means their digital workers’ actions will be enhanced with machine learning and analytics. Alteryx VBO for Blue Prism Process Studio can be found on the Blue Prism Digital Exchange.

Data analysts and data scientists can also trigger digital workers within their Alteryx analytic workflows via the Blue Prism Connector for Alteryx Designer to retrieve data and deliver results across the enterprise. Alteryx Analytics Gallery offers the Blue Prism Connector for Alteryx Designer. By combining Alteryx and Blue Prism, comprehensive analytics and data science solution are created that allows companies to derive value from both structured and unstructured data, regardless of where it resides.

Nitin Brahmankar, global vice president, ISV & ecosystem partnerships, Alteryx, commented, “Alteryx analytics automation embeds intelligent decisioning and powers your people to deliver faster, better business outcomes. Pairing Alteryx with Blue Prism’s intelligent automation improves the quality of data extracted, enabling customers to use data automation across the entire enterprise, facilitating smarter and faster decisions. This is critical for future-focused businesses that want to remain agile, productive, and competitive.”

Data preparation, blending, reporting, predictive analytics, and data science are all automated by Alteryx. However, obtaining data from legacy applications or applications without an API is a manual and laborious process. The native integration of Blue Prism with Alteryx makes it possible to facilitate this process and provides access to important business data from across the enterprise. Through seamless integration, the solution enables customers to consolidate, enrich and analyze data anywhere and provides them with end-to-end management of enterprise data and operational processes.
