Fujitsu has signed a global agreement with Thoughtonomy to add Robotic Process Automation (RPA) to the suite of tools and services that sit within the Fujitsu Global Application Modernization Integration practice. This addition enables Fujitsu to offer organizations a way to leverage the investment made in systems and applications, delivering more from IT budgets and reducing the risk of implementing new technologies.
The partnership delivers a unique, integrated and highly flexible automation platform, offered as-a-service from a scalable and secure hosted cloud based environment or on-premise deployment and available globally.
Automating manual processes not only removes effort, but increases speed, reliability, compliance, and customer and employee satisfaction. The Thoughtonomy Virtual Workforce® platform uses intelligent software to non-disruptively replicate the interactions of people and technology, enabling organizations to simply augment or replace human activity without the compromises or challenges usually associated with automation.
Geoff Peters, Head of Legacy Modernization at Fujitsu, said of the partnership “Fujitsu’s Application Modernization Services allow organisations to leverage the investments they have made in applications, and to deliver more from IT budgets. Thoughtonomy has given us a great platform to deliver on client’s strategies, opening up new opportunities to deliver digital transformation while leveraging existing application investments, and doing so at greater speed, lower cost and lower risk than alternative approaches.”
Terry Walby, CEO of Thoughtonomy, said “We are delighted to be working with Fujitsu to bring the benefits of the Virtual Workforce to organizations across the globe. We have proven the capability of the technology to deliver efficiency into manual work across back office and front office processes, in business and in IT operations. Fujitsu’s deep expertise in customer-focused IT solutions will help to provide the benefits of Intelligent Automation across the market – not just as an efficiency play, but as a frictionless route to digital transformation. “
