Blue Prism helped coin the term “robotic process automation” (RPA) back in 2001 when they began introducing their digital workers that handle repetitive tasks. In November of 2018, they launched their Digital Exchange (DX) to allow customers and partners to build and exchange tools that enhance the Blue Prism RPA platform. The Digital Exchange was built using developerprogram.com’s Digital Business Technology Platform, dpEngine.
Since it began last fall, DX has registered more than 7000 users and almost 400 companies. Assets on the Digital Exchange have been downloaded more than 1,000 times. All of this success led Blue Prism to launch their Digital Exchange 2.0 on January 24th, 2019. The Digital Exchange (DX) enables access to the technologies of Blue Prism’s strategic partners including IBM, Microsoft, and Google. DX 2.0 comes with new search capabilities as well as giving users the ability to rate and comment on assets.
The Blue Prism RPA platform comes with instant access to intelligent automation skills and a drag and drop interface. The new Digital Exchange 2.0 contains a growing ecosystem of downloadable assets that include artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), optical character recognition (OCR), and cognitive solutions. These assets are submitted by partners, approved by Blue Prism, then published for use on the DX; all using dpEngine as the backbone. Customers can quickly download these assets and start using them in the drag and drop interface immediately.
Along with the launch of DX 2.0, Blue Prism announced that their Digital Exchange will soon include an “eCommerce/vending machine capability that enables users to buy and sell solutions and services on the DX making it a true eCommerce site. Technology partners, developers and anyone who has a best of breed AI or cognitive solution can join the Blue Prism DX community to market and sell on it.”
