UiPath powers automation journeys with latest platform release

By Catherine Knowles
Tue 9 Nov 2021

UiPath has announced its 2021.10 platform release, including features that enable customers to further their automation journeys.

This includes additional capabilities and simpler experiences in discovering, building, managing and running automations across the enterprise.

With its 2021.10 platform release, UiPath has strengthened its core robotic process automation (RPA) solutions while introducing enterprise-grade UI-based and API-based automation capabilities.

This enables teams to deliver enterprise-grade automation management, reliability, governance and security, and accelerates how developers build automations and how users implement them.

The new release also offers the benefits of cloud native architecture through the new UiPath Automation Suite, whether customers choose to take delivery of the UiPath Platform via on-premises, public cloud, or third-party hosted services.

New innovations include:

UiPath integration service: UiPath customers now have access to API and UI integration along with the flexibility to use UI and API in any combination within a single automation.

Developers can now use APIs in the same way they employ UI from within UiPath Studio. They can quickly build automations requiring APIs as well as automations that traverse both API and non-API apps and systems, such as those involving both modern and legacy technologies. Integration Service also enables centralised governance of API access.

Powering the mission-critical role of automation in the enterprise: With the Endpoint Protection Integration with CrowdStrike, UiPath is the first in the industry to offer endpoint security for RPA.

Joint UiPath and CrowdStrike customers now can utilise the same level of endpoint protection for robots as they already have for people, the company states.

With real-time correlation of events with the originating RPA processes and the ability to quarantine hosts without disrupting business processes, this integration improves and accelerates threat hunting, investigation and remediation while ensuring business continuity, UiPath states.

The release also includes new capabilities to scale and govern automation programs. Customers can automatically monitor and maintain critical Platform elements.

For example, Robot Auto-healing, powered by UiPath built-in IT automation capabilities, assesses robots runtime environments to detect and remediate issues without requiring human intervention.

Accelerating development and use of automation: For developers, the release includes packages, components and intelligent assists that accelerate building while standardising and improving automation quality, making it easier to incorporate AI into automations.

Developers can bring in their enterprise's data science, as well as models from UiPath partners, directly into AI Center with the new ML Ops Solution.

Developers can now build automations for Linux. For citizen developers, it offers integrations for OneDrive and SharePoint, and the Object Repository now in StudioX automatically captures and codifies source codes and creates a library of reusable components.

For end users, a new integration between Assistant and UiPath Marketplace now makes it simpler to take advantage of the growing array of Marketplace automations.

Cloud native automation: Automation Suite takes the UiPath Automation Cloud SaaS experience and optimises it for delivery on-premises, in public cloud, or from hosting partners.

The single-install containerised package delivers all UiPath server products containerised with Kubernetes, integrated and delivered with platform management tools already built in.

High availability and scale management is also included, as well as end-to-end support from UiPath for everything in the package, including the platform components and product integrations.

UiPath chief product officer Param Kahlon says, “In the enterprise of the not too distant future, automation serves as the connective force for the entire enterprise, providing digital joins across applications, systems and software.

"Companies have fully embraced an automation first, automation foundational approach to conceiving, designing, and executing processes.

"By bringing adjacent new capabilities together into a single place and providing seamless integration between them, we can blast through existing RPA boundaries, dramatically expanding the playing field for developers, and multiplying and accelerating automations overall impact across the enterprise.”
