Organisations looking to gain a competitive edge are building AI-powered intelligent automation to speed digital transformation. Avanade, in collaboration with Blueprint Software Systems and Microsoft, has built an automation migration kit that saves time, reduces cost, and scales intelligent automation to every part of the enterprise.

Automate migration to accelerate digital transformation

As organisations rethink their business for a post-pandemic future, many leaders are looking for ways to accelerate digital transformation. Companies invested in automation technologies like robotic process automation (RPA) and its AI-infused sibling intelligent automation (IA) are looking for ways to unlock additional business efficiencies and workforce productivity.

But too often, automation efforts stalled. Some bumped into the limitations of RPA and never got beyond proof-of-concept. Or they tried to force-fit IA before the data ecosystem was mature enough, leading to disparate automations and disappointing results. Organisations need an “easy button” approach to create a cohesive, single-platform automation solution that can scale across the entire enterprise.

Avanade, together with Blueprint and Microsoft have collaborated on an automation migration kit that helps convert a company’s existing automations from other platforms over to Power Automate 30% faster for about 70% less cost of a manual migration. It also creates a digital blueprint of your automations to allow for higher-quality automations, with lower maintenance and break-fix costs.

“Historically, the prospect of changing RPA vendors meant companies had to rebuild their bots from scratch. The hours, labor, and operational expense of doing this ultimately prevented companies from switching,” says Dan Shimmerman, CEO, Blueprint. “Our partnership with Avanade enables companies to migrate seamlessly from platforms including Automation Anywhere to Power Automate. It also helps them to realise full benefits of intelligent automation by bridging their internal silos and support business priorities, enabling business and IT teams to shorten the time to value.”
