UiPath, a leading enterprise automation software company, has launched the UiPath Business Automation Platform as a pre-built solution for the Snowflake Manufacturing Data Cloud. This will enable joint customers to design and build workflows based on 360-degree views of trusted and accessible data, adding speed, increasing efficiency, and driving revenues across the manufacturing value chain.
The Manufacturing Data Cloud, launched by Snowflake, the Data Cloud company, enables companies in the automotive, technology, energy, and industrial sectors to unlock the value of their critical siloed industrial data by leveraging Snowflake’s data platform, Snowflake- and partner-delivered solutions, and industry-specific datasets.
With Snowflake’s Manufacturing Data Cloud, organizations can build a data foundation for their business, improve supply chain performance, and power innovative manufacturing initiatives in today’s digital-industrial world. By leveraging the Snowflake Manufacturing Data Cloud, UiPath software robots can instantly connect data directly to business processes without using complex code – speeding up time to value and innovation, driving efficiency in operations, ensuring on-time full delivery, and enriching the customer and employee experience.
How does this benefit mutual customers?
The partnership is timely, given manufacturers have faced intense pressure to increase efficiencies and cut costs. Consumer demand for lower prices, the rising cost of raw materials, and increasingly complex supply chains have prompted manufacturers to seek new ways to meet these mandates. Manufacturers understand that to evolve, survive and thrive. They must become more fully immersed in digital transformation. Automating the current data and analytics pipeline is critical to these efforts. It can help them realize significant benefits, including more accurate demand forecasting, improved quality control, efficient inventory management, and accurate end-to-end visibility.
According to Dhruv Asher, Senior Vice President of Alliances and Business Development at UiPath, “When automation, artificial intelligence, and IoT are seamlessly connected, today’s manufacturers can dramatically reduce throughput time and increase output while enabling reduced lot sizes, ensuring sustainable operations, and lower operating costs. The Manufacturing Data Cloud is an excellent step in streamlining cloud data adoption for the manufacturing industry. By bringing the UiPath Business Automation Platform to Snowflake’s Manufacturing Data Cloud, we believe customers will accelerate digital transformation and fuel faster innovations with greater data insights to capture high-impact opportunities across the manufacturing value chain.”
The Snowflake Manufacturing Data Cloud empowers manufacturers to power Industry 4.0 intelligent manufacturing initiatives to deliver the performance, scalability, and data-sharing capabilities needed for supply chain optimization, manufacturing automation, robotics, and IoT initiatives.
Tim Long, the Global Head of Manufacturing at Snowflake, expressed his enthusiasm for the continued partnership with UiPath, stating that it would help the manufacturing industry embrace the increasingly digital-industrial world. He added that manufacturing data has no size limit and that partnerships with organizations like UiPath would help Snowflake serve its joint customers globally and support its mission of mobilizing the world’s data.
UiPath & Snowflake’s Partnership
UiPath and Snowflake continue to deepen their technology partnership to help customers across industries better use data as a critical asset to drive innovation and efficiencies in their business. As a cloud-first customer choice platform company, UiPath has built two offerings – UiPath Insights and UiPath Process Mining – on top of the Snowflake Data Cloud.
UiPath Insights is a Robotic Process Automation (RPA) analytics solution that measures, reports, and aligns enterprise automation operations with strategic business outcomes. This combined offering of UiPath with Snowflake’s computing, elastic scaling, and enterprise-grade secure data-sharing capabilities provides customers with faster data processing while enabling them to perform long-term historical analysis to scale their automation journeys.
UiPath Process Mining is the first process mining software solution to run natively on Snowflake. It analyzes data left behind in systems and applications such as SAP and Salesforce to reveal the actual process. It enables organizations to identify automation and improvement potential in end-to-end business processes.
UiPath’s launch of the UiPath Business Automation Platform as a pre-built solution for Snowflake’s Manufacturing Data Cloud will enable joint customers to design and build workflows based on 360-degree views of trusted and accessible data, driving revenues across the manufacturing value chain. With this partnership, manufacturers can automate their data and analytics pipeline, leading to more accurate demand forecasting, improved quality control, more efficient inventory management, and true end-to-end visibility. This timely partnership will help the manufacturing industry embrace the increasingly digital-industrial world and drive innovation and efficiencies in their business.
