itelligence becomes Diamond Partner of automation specialist UiPath
The the globally leading SAP consulting company itelligence AG has been named a Diamond Partner for Europe by automation specialist UiPath. The market researchers at Gartner and Forrester consider UiPath a leader in the field of robotic process automation.
“Automation plays a major role on the road to digitization, because it improves the speed and quality of processes,” says Uwe Bohnhorst, Global Chief Operating Officer at itelligence. “With their SAP know-how and their industry knowledge, our IT architects take full advantage of the potential of robotic process automation and supply added value where it makes the most sense.”
At UiPath, partner status is based on the number of employees trained in the various automation roles. UiPath defines minimum amounts, and the partners are periodically required to demonstrate that they meet these thresholds. “We have a large number of trained specialists for robotic process automation at itelligence, in part thanks to the international connections through NTT DATA Group. That’s why itelligence earns the ‘Diamond’ status awarded to just a few other partners,” explains Bohnhorst. “We’re on-site at the customer’s location to realize concepts, fill project management roles and perform the implementation. In the process, we simultaneously make use of our global network for efficient scaling. All in keeping with our motto: “We Transform. Trust into Value.”
The market for this type of automation grew by 63 percent last year according to the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Robotic Process Automation Software and therefore represents the fastest growing category in the field of business software at the moment. Analysts currently estimate the global market volume to be 846 million dollars, and they expect it to grow to 2.4 billion dollars by 2024.
In their report The Forrester Wave Robotic Process Automation, Q2 2018, market researchers at Forrester assume that by the end of 2020, more than four million software robots will already be helping companies with office and administrative work.
“With its user-friendly interface, UiPath makes it easy to get started with process automation, so it’s the platform of choice for many of our customers,” reports Mark Albrecht, Global Head of Innovation Technologies at itelligence. Besides UiPath, the itelligence portfolio also includes SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation and NTT WinActor. “In addition to giving our customers advice about specific tools, we support them as they move forward with automation,” says Albrecht.
