OutSystems has announced a new partnership with enterprise automation firm UiPath that the pair say will help customers improve productivity and bridge talent gaps through improved automation.

The collaboration will combine UiPath’s Business Automation Platform with OutSystems’ high-performance low-code to enable customers to automate core business processes and applications.

Solutions and services will also be integrated with a new connector that allows UiPath software robots to be managed from within OutSystems applications, designed to help prevent vendor lock-in and maximise ROI.

Rui Pereira, VP of Global Channel at OutSystems, said that digital transformation pressures are creating a mandate for organisations to make “smarter, more efficient workplaces and effortless experienced for customers”.

“Our high-performance low-code development approach, combined with the power of UiPath automation, provides our joint customers with a proven roadmap to higher-order efficiency gains,” he said.

“The result of this integration enables IT leaders to bridge the talent gaps of their teams in order to accelerate innovation and generate massive value for their organisations.”

OutSystems’ high performance low-code platform provides tech developers the tools to build and deploy their own business-critical applications at pace.

With its new partnership with UiPath, the firm says customers can now also apply automated processes end-to-end across departments and systems of record, as well as leverage easy-to-use design interfaces and native integration that reduce development times and help rapidly deliver composite apps.

Users can also incorporate AI and Machine Learning to automate document understanding, image analysis, language analysis, and comprehension, while enterprise-grade RPA will automate manual application testing.

“More than half of large enterprises today have four or more simultaneous automation initiatives - and this number is only expected to rise over the coming years,” explained Dhruv Asher, UiPath Senior Vice President of Alliances and Business Development.

“Our partnership with OutSystems will be integral to serving this growing market demand and enabling our joint customers to deploy complex automation at scale.”
