There is gold in BYOL for robots

Oracle Partner Blue Prism has noted that its Bring your own licence [BYOL] is doing rather well with Robotic Process Automation (RPA) users.

The new Oracle Cloud Marketplace offering makes it easier for customers to run Blue Prism on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, it’s claimed. It also gives customers access to end-to-end automation solutions that cover the broadest range of IT environments — including on-premises, hybrid and SaaS — an industry first, the company claims.

The BYOL listing on Oracle Cloud Marketplace is Blue Prism pre-installed on an image for easy deployment on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure; those with existing Blue Prism licences can migrate software licences to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Oracle customers can also use existing Oracle Universal Credits to pay for cloud infrastructure services. The offering gives Oracle customers an opportunity to experience Blue Prism on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, as well as introduces them to the possibilities of intelligent automation.

Blue Prism’s Chief Partner Strategy Officer, Linda Dotts, said the BYOL offering strengthens our relationship by expanding deployment opportunities for new and existing Blue Prism customers exploring cloud options. “It introduces Blue Prism to Oracle customers looking for automation solutions to run on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. We’re offering customers more flexible cloud deployment options for intelligent automation, which includes a SaaS option with Blue Prism Cloud.”

Pumping up the volume, Dotts claimed the Oracle Cloud Marketplace is a one-stop shop for Oracle customers seeking business applications and service providers offering unique business solutions, including ones that extend Oracle Cloud Applications. Oracle Cloud delivers massive, non-variable performance and security across a comprehensive portfolio of services – including SaaS, application development, application hosting, and business analytics. Customers get access to leading compute, storage, data management, integration, security, HPC, artificial intelligence (AI), and blockchain services to augment and modernise their critical workloads.
