SS&C Debuts Blue Prism Next Gen Platform for Intelligent Automation


Let’s talk about SS&C Technologies Holdings, Inc., shall we?

For nearly 40 years, SS&C has developed and provided technology and services that power its clients’ industry-specific (and often complex and interconnected) solutions. With its prime focus on healthcare, wealth management and fintech ecosystems, SS&C has achieved what it defines as “true end-to-end digital transformation” through artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), predictive analytics, micro-service cloud architecture, natural language processing (NLP) and real-time computing. With customizable service models utilizing its tech and operational expertise in equal measure, its financial service solutions support needs involving asset management, banking, hedge funds, insurance, private markets and retirement, and its healthcare solutions help to “better operationalize and align coordinated care strategies” for payers, providers and pharmacy benefits managers.

The long-story-short of it? SS&C uplifts more than 20,000 diverse clients, and more than $45 trillion worth in clients’ assets run on SS&C technology.

That’s a lot of green being spent smartly on what SS&C has to offer.

And recently, the company has announced even more:

SS&C announced the first release of its new SS&C Blue Prism Next Generation intelligent automation platform, which was designed specifically to deliver continuous, agile capabilities for users.

SS&C Next Gen’s first release’s features include the following, per SS&C:

  • Process Design: Next Gen’s Design Studio allows users to create, edit and test processes locally with an easy-to-use drag-and-drop user interface; one that is familiar to existing Blue Prism developers, helping ensure a streamlined and effortless adoption of the Next Generation platform.
  • Centralized Storage: Customers can benefit from Next Gen’s Process Repository, which saves processes and objects using cloud-based storage. Users can use version control to track changes with minimal effort and deploy automations using a stage-gated submission and review process with a traceable audit trail to ensure a compliant release process.
  • Secure Execution: Self-hosted digital workers can be deployed on an organization’s network, so no sensitive data leaves its site.
  • Cloud-Based Operations: Next Gen’s Control Center provides a single pane of glass across the entire operation, thereby simplifying worker management across all environments. The organization can start, stop, and schedule processes while monitoring the health of automations and digital workers.

“Although 87% of organizations have accelerated their investments in cloud-hosted automation services in the past year, many organizations still face a number of barriers,” said Colin Redbond, Senior Vice President of Product Management, SS&C Blue Prism. “Next Gen’s hybrid deployment model addresses this issue head-on, equipping customers with the latest AI capabilities needed to create value for customers and employees. SS&C Blue Prism Next Gen enables organizations to reduce infrastructure overheads, quickly adapt to changing priorities, scale more effectively, and upgrade digital workers on demand while satisfying the necessary industry security and compliance requirements.”
