Blueprint Launches Solution for RPA Platform Migration, Ending RPA Vendor Lock-In
Our technology reduces the complexity and cost of relocating RPA tools to near zero, so organizations can choose the platform that works best for them, regardless of how much they’ve already developed on a competing platform.

Blueprint Software Systems, a leader in the world’s most powerful design environment for process automation, today announced the availability of a new migration solution for the RPA platform that enables organizations to move quickly and seamlessly from one RPA tool to another while adding value can create to its existing bot architecture.
“There are a variety of reasons many organizations want to change RPA platforms, from failed values to incompatible version upgrades. The burden of migration was too great, however, and they got stuck with whichever RPA provider they originally decided to use, ”said Dan Shimmerman, President and CEO of Blueprint. “Blueprint makes switching between the leading RPA providers easy, fast and affordable, opening up the entire RPA market.”
In the past, switching RPA platforms has been both expensive and difficult due to lack of code parity, lost credentials, lack of versioning, unavailable output comparison, lack of audit logs, and numerous other challenges. This meant that companies had to build their entire bot portfolio from scratch in order to switch RPA providers. The time, manual effort, and cost of ownership ultimately prevented companies from making the switch.
The new migration solution for Blueprint’s RPA platform, which is part of Blueprint’s Enterprise Automation Suite, works three times faster and offers a cost reduction of 75 percent than manually migrating bots or recreating them on a different RPA platform. Bots are picked up by every leading RPA tool and reverse engineered to create an updated automated process in the form of a digital blueprint. If necessary, these digital blueprints can be further refined before they are automatically transferred to another RPA platform, including leading providers like Blue Prism, UiPath and Automation Anywhere. Not only does this simplify bot migration, it also enables improvements to a company’s bot ecosystem.
In addition, digital blueprints can be used to connect automated processes with all relevant dependencies, systems, and constraints, enabling better RPA change management and risk analysis to maximize RPA availability for higher returns. Digital blueprints can also identify errors, problems and exceptions during the migration process and automatically fix the problems that previously caused friction in the migration process.
“Our technology reduces the complexity and cost of relocating RPA tools to near zero, so companies can choose the platform that best suits them, regardless of how much they’ve developed on a competing platform,” added Shimmerman . “This is ultimately pushing the RPA tools onto the stack of values and standardizing the automation and execution platforms so organizations can choose the vendor that offers the best price and value and easily switch.”
