Multi-Platform RPA Management: Unlocking the Future of Automation

In the rapidly evolving world of automation technology, RPA cross-platform tools have emerged as a game-changer for organizations seeking to optimize their multi-platform RPA management. Traditionally, automation companies have tried to lock customers into only using tools from their tech stack. However, as technology advances at an unprecedented pace, the ability to leverage third-party tools has become increasingly crucial. RPA cross-platform tools provide the flexibility and adaptability needed to thrive in this dynamic landscape.

Vendor Lock Limits Innovation

Many customers have built extensive automation workflows on their initial RPA platform. But as new and more powerful tools emerge, they can find themselves struggling to integrate new third-party tools.  

As each platform innovates differently, we have seen companies choose to fully migrate to new platforms to take advantage of new tools. A migration like this often required completely recoding all existing automations, a time-consuming and costly endeavor. 

The other option has been to keep your automations running on the original platform and innovate on another. This approach limits end-to-end automation flows and causes data silos.

The Rise of Multi-Platform Orchestration

Fortunately, the landscape has shifted with the introduction of multi-platform orchestration. This is done with a Universal Orchestrator, a centralized system that coordinates the handoff of tasks from one automation system to another. 

The ARIA Universal Orchestrator platform allows organizations to seamlessly integrate new RPA, low-code, and AI tools into their existing automation workflows. By orchestrating these disparate systems, companies can create a cohesive and efficient automation ecosystem that adapts to their evolving requirements. 

You no longer have to choose, settle and hope for the best. ARIA enables CoE leaders to choose the intelligent automation capability that is best-for-need at hand, enabling unprecedented innovation and efficiency.

ARIA Universal Orchestrator Use Case

A Manufacturing company who was early adopter of automation technology has built 300 automations on SS&C Blue Prism.  

Their organization acquired a smaller competitor who uses two different systems: UiPath for their supply chain logistics, and Power Automate for all their accounting process automation. 

A complete restructuring of each department’s automation may be worth it in the future, but for now, the cost, time, and business disruption are not worth the risk.  

The company needs a way to manage handoffs between the different automation systems to create end-to-end workflows and ensure that data from the combined company is governed and logged correctly.  

ARIA CoE can bring their three different platforms under one Universal Orchestration layer. This gives leadership a centralized view of their entire digital workforce. With its ability to automate robot task allocation, it realized a 20% improvement in robot efficiency.   

Innovating beyond today’s problems, ARIA can seamlessly integrate new technology. The AI-Powered Chat with your Data allowed the now combined organization to query their data lake for meaningful context that helped human and digital workers perform their tasks. 

Benefits of Multi-Platform RPA Management 

1.     Cost-effectiveness: Multi-platform orchestration is generally more cost-effective than migrating an entire automation codebase. It allows businesses to leverage their existing investments while selectively adopting new technologies. 

2.      Flexibility: This approach enables companies to mix and match low-cost alternatives with their top-tier RPA tools, optimizing their automation ecosystem for maximum efficiency and cost-effectiveness. 

3.     Future-proofing: By embracing multi-platform RPA management, organizations can stay ahead of the curve, continuously adapting their automation strategies to take advantage of the latest advancements. 

4.      Seamless integration: The ARIA Universal Orchestrator ensures that new tools and technologies can be seamlessly incorporated into existing workflows. 

Are you ready to unify your automation program?

As the pace of technological change accelerates, the ability to adapt and integrate new AI tools and technologies will become increasingly essential for organizations seeking to maintain a competitive edge.  

By breaking free from the constraints of proprietary tech stacks with Universal Orchestration, businesses can enjoy greater flexibility, cost-savings, and the ability to continuously innovate and optimize their automation strategies.
