SS&C Technologies Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: SSNC) today announced SS&C Blue Prism has been named a “Leader” in The Forrester Wave™: Robotic Process Automation, Q1 2023.
Evaluated among the 15 top vendors, SS&C Blue Prism received the highest possible scores in the criteria of vision; roadmap; pricing flexibility and transparency; partner ecosystem; security; bot deployment; low-code/no-code capabilities; design environment; and application control.
The report, authored by Dr. Bernard Schaffrik, principal analyst at Forrester, states, “Blue Prism was formerly known as an RPA pure play, but its acquisition by SS&C and subsequent increase in R&D investment have turned it into an automation platform that still leverages RPA as a core technology. It [SS&C Blue Prism] now approaches its customers’ automation needs from a business process perspective.” Further, the report states, “Strategically, SS&C Blue Prism plans to continue implementing its IP from the combination of the former SS&C and Blue Prism product sets in its joint platform to deliver a best-in-class automation platform.”
According to the report, “We appreciate the existing degree of integration of RPA-adjacent technologies such as low-code development, business rules editing, intelligent document processing (IDP), and data integration with RPA on one platform. Process mapping and orchestration features coming from the Chorus™ product will help automation teams extend RPA bots and low-code apps to automate more-complex processes and not just tasks.” The report also notes, “Chorus users will appreciate the additional RPA capability set, while automation decision-makers, especially from the financial services industries, might want to pick the platform for its focus on process automation, security, reliability, and scalability.
Bill Stone, Chairman and CEO of SS&C Technologies, commented: “We believe being recognized by Forrester as a Leader in RPA is a testament to the hard work and dedication across the SS&C Blue Prism team. Our comprehensive intelligent automation offering will continue to deliver significant transformational value for our customers as our vision remains a constant focus in 2023 – to improve how people work and interact.”
