Blue Prism vs Automation Anywhere vs UiPath

Let’s discuss about major differences between blueprism, automation anywhere and uipath.

Key Differences

  • Automation Anywhere is more script based, while UIPath and BluePrism have visual process designers. This means you need to have better programming skills to use Automation Anywhere.
  • Automation Anywhere and UiPath have Macro Recorders, a feature that will get you up to speed in process mapping, while BP lacks this feature, due to their rather outdated technology. They say this is due to security constraints but a recorder is just a useful tool that you can choose not to use. The recorded actions can also be tweaked and changed as per your needs.
  • Beside these there are specific differences when it comes to automation techniques. You need to consider your process and the steps taken to automate. UiPath Robotic process Automation shines in Citrix and was specifically designed for BPO Automation, based on client insights.
  • From Cognitive Capability and Re – usability point of view Automation Anywhere leads the way.
  • Where as Blue Prism Shines in citrix automation designed for bpo automation and Large scale robot deployment is limited.
  • Client server architecture is much better with Blue Prism.
