(PRESS RELEASE) FARNBOROUGH, UK, 3-Jun-2019 — /EuropaWire/ — BAE Systems teams up with robotic process automation (RPA) leader, UiPath, to develop and accelerate suites of software robots that its customers can use to automate high-volume, repetitive business processes.
Don DeSanto, director of strategic partnerships for the BAE Systems Intelligence & Security sector commented: “RPAs fuel machine learning tools by feeding them high volumes of structured data necessary for it to begin learning and improving automatically, without being programmed. Human-machine teaming is the future of technology, and RPAs serve as workforce multipliers that can be designed to automate many common tasks performed in organizations every day.”
The technology partner is also working with UiPath to develop and embed new automation capabilities within its Advanced Analytics Lab. Its Lab transforms large volumes of unstructured and semi-structured data into relevant and actionable intelligence for its customers. RPAs are capable of searching, sorting, and in some cases, processing large data sets to complete work that currently takes employees hours to complete thus allowing the human analysts to focus on managing more critical challenges.
Jim Walker, Chief Technology Officer for the UiPath U.S. Federal business, commented: “UiPath’s RPA Platform is proven to deliver faster automation design and deployment than competitors, and most customers see a return on investment in as little as six months. The technology is completely scalable and can be used at the server or enterprise levels, and can even be leveraged to enhance business operations occurring in the cloud.”
BAE Systems is currently taking advantage of RPAs to drive process improvement with its customers to increase automation, reduce operating costs and create new efficiencies.
Manish Parikh, chief technology officer of the BAE Systems Intelligence & Security sector, commented: “We are transitioning RPA technology from traditional business processes to automate intelligence analysis workflows, aligning to major intelligence community augmented analytics initiatives. Working with UiPath, our analysts are laying the foundation on which future augmented analytics capabilities will be designed and integrated into government systems.”
BAE Systems is at the 2019 GEOINT Symposium in San Antonio, Texas to present how it integrates RPAs into its mission workflows.
BAE Systems offers a broad range of solutions and services enabling militaries and governments to carry out their respective missions successfully. The company provides large-scale systems engineering, integration, and sustainment services across air, land, sea, space, and cyber domains. BAE Systems takes pride in its support of national security and those who serve.
