What is Automation Anywhere RPA?

Automation Anywhere is one of the three most mature and established Robotic Process Automation (RPA) software solutions on the market. The company was originally founded in 2003 in San Jose, California and rebranded as Automation Anywhere in 2010. Automation Anywhere was one of the first companies in the RPA space to introduce Bot Store, an online marketplace for pre-built ready to configure bots.

  • BotFarm: RPA tool which can be implemented based on the usage rather than on capacity or license basis
