Another RPA+BPM partnership: Software AG and Kryon Systems
On October 31st Software AG and Kryon Systems announced a new partnership that sees Software AG selling and distributing Kryon Systems’ RPA technology alongside its own Dynamic Apps Platform.
On the heels of Appian’s tie-up with Blue Prism, IBM’s tie-up with Automation Anywhere and Pegasystems’ acquisition of OpenSpan, this new partnership shows how digital platform vendors are finding ways to create mixed portfolios of work automation technologies.
The deal is a straightforward one, which sees Software AG promote, sell and distribute (and support) Kryon Systems’ RPA offering. Kryon’s platform, Leo, delivers both server-based/unattended and desktop-based/attended automation options.
Founded in 2009, Kryon started out offering its technology as an EPSS (learning support environment) for business/application change programmes – customers would use Leo to provide interactive training experiences overlaid on applications’ user interfaces, and gather data about application usage to help inform further development of training content and user experiences.
