Automation leader at forefront of industry initiative to help large businesses
as they transition to automated environment
London, 1st August 2019: Thoughtonomy, the
leading Intelligent Automation platform provider, today announced its
involvement in IEEE 2755.1™ – Guide for Taxonomy for Intelligent Process
Automation Product Features and Functionality.
2755.1 is the first published standard that informs the product selection
process within automation, defining more than 140 product features, and
detailing each feature’s importance to guide product assessment and selection
process. It will enable buyers to develop a deeper understanding of product
options in order to select an automation platform that best meets their needs.
Coulter, chair of IEEE Working Group on Standards in Intelligent Automation,
said: “IEEE 2755.1 helps accelerate enterprise adoption of automation
technologies by grouping functionality into six feature-set categories,
defining and explaining features in context, and provides a turnkey guide to
both understand and select the best-suited products.”
heavy involvement in the initiative is the latest example of its ongoing
commitment to driving and promoting quality and standards within the
Intelligent Automation and Robotic Process Automation industry.
Major, CTO at Thoughtonomy, said: “IEEE 2755.1 is an important milestone for
the Intelligent Automation industry – in such a new and dynamic field of
technology, it’s important to give businesses the information and reassurance
they need when evaluating the different products available to them. Without
enforcing standards in automation and promoting best practice, we run the risk
of creating the next generation of legacy technology issues that will cost huge
amounts of time and money to rectify.”
Novermber 2018, Thoughtonomy launched the first tool on the market that
ensures any business user can develop enterprise-quality automations as
standard. The ‘Wireframer’ feature, available within Thoughtonomy’s Virtual
Workforce® platform, incorporates best practice engineering knowledge in a new
simple to use automation builder interface that guides business users through
the design phase, reducing development time by 70% and pre-populating new
automations with robust, controls as standard.
a backdrop of explosive adoption, Thoughtonomy continues to lead the industry
in taking action to ensure that companies can rest assured that the automations
underpinning critical processes are being accredited and will be developed to a
consistent standard across any function. This approach turns on its head the
current trend for individuals to be certified in utilizing automation software
while ignoring the dangers of allowing the process automations they create to be
launched unchecked at wildly different levels of quality.
Through its Virtual Workforce Platform, Thoughtonomy provides companies with access to a pool of cloud-based intelligent digital labor that can take on the time-consuming, repetitive tasks that impede the productivity of human workforces. By integrating these digital workers with human teams, companies can accelerate growth and achieve a step change in efficiency.
