19 February 2020: Deloitte’s market leading expertise in delivering cognitive and intelligent automation services has been recognised by world-leading Robotic Process Automation (RPA) & AI software company UiPath, which has awarded Deloitte Asia Pacific with Diamond level Global Business Partner status. Deloitte is the first to receive UiPath’s highest partner status across the region.

The award recognises Deloitte’s commitment to building capability and certifying its people, along with advising and delivering enterprise scaled automation for clients leveraging the UiPath platform. UiPath is a market leader in the fields of RPA and AI, and believes adopting an ‘automation first’ mindset is the first step on the path to making digital transformation real in the enterprise.

Deloitte’s 2019 report, Automation with Intelligence: Reimagining the organization in the ‘Age of With’, notes that while 2020 is seen as being the breakout year for intelligent automation, a lack of skills is holding back over a third (34%) of executives from scaling such technology.

“Understanding how to work with increasing levels of automation will become a key skill as technology changes the nature of work,” said John Pickering, Partner in Deloitte Robotics and Cognitive Automation, Australia. “UiPath helps create robots that take over the routine tasks, freeing up people to enjoy the non-routine ones.

“Deloitte’s commitment to automation and AI as a driver for the transformation of organisations is a strategic choice. Our rapid growth in recent years means we are the largest team in Australia dedicated to automation services. Our alliance with UiPath complements our capabilities to offer innovative services and solutions to our clients, helping them drive concrete business outcomes with an Automation First mindset. We are very proud to be recognised by UiPath as the first partner in the region to be awarded Diamond status and we continue to work closely together across many initiatives including our collaboration in becoming a UiPath Learning Partner, which enables us to offer training and certification services to our clients on behalf of UiPath.

“The surging demand for intelligent business process automation and the declining costs of automation software and services are key factors contributing to the growth of what Forrester predicts will be a $12 billion market by 2023. Deloitte sees huge opportunity in the automation and AI market and we will continue to invest to bring the best solutions to our clients.”

Paul Kessler, Vice President Partners, Asia Pacific from UiPath said: “We are thrilled with Deloitte’s investment to train and certify their people with UiPath accreditations. Our vision of a robot for every person aligns with Deloitte’s strategy for a digital workforce augmenting humans, so they’re freed up to strategise, build competitive advantage and make faster decisions. Deloitte’s UiPath Diamond level partner status demonstrates capability throughout the automation lifecycle, from process discovery through to implementing automation and building it into their customers’ way of doing business.”
