Remove the reliance on image-based RPA technologies and combat the need for complex infrastructure VPNs by enabling simple and robust automation through standard user Citrix or RDS sessions.
IA-Connect integrates directly with platforms such as BluePrism and UiPath to initiate and manage remote session tunnels through Citrix or Microsoft RDS, removing the reliance on image-based technologies and enabling processes to be developed in practically the same way as developing natively.
This allows us not only to eliminate Surface Automation, but also to remove the need for complex infrastructure VPNs by enabling simple and robust automation through standard user Citrix or RDS sessions.
To demonstrate how simple it is to integrate IA-Connect into your automations, we've created a flow which enters information into an internal Door Entry System application over Citrix:
"By leveraging Citrix virtual channels, IA-Connect completely eliminates the need for Surface Automation, enabling developers to automate Citrix and RDS based applications in practically the same way they would if the applications were local."
Ultima were engaged to undertake a Proof of Concept of IA-Connect for a leading healthcare provider in the United States to complement their existing implementation of Blue Prism.
Managed Service Providers
For Managed Service Providers (MSPs) or any organisation needing to host an RPA platform for external clients, IA-Connect presents a unique opportunity to optimise their workloads.
Because hosted Digital Workers typically require applications to be installed to perform automations and to be domain joined with a VPN connection, each Digital Worker is usually tied to an organisation and domain. MSPs traditionally have to make a choice of dedicating Digital Workers to specific clients, which results in underused capacity, or leverage Surface Automation enabling Digital Workers to use applications which are hosted internally over Citrix or RDS. Both of these options result in a less than optimal solution and unnecessary cost to the business.
By pooling Digital Workers and then enabling fully interactive automation of applications over a standard Citrix or RDS session, IA-Connect can help to consolidate the number of Digital Workers needed and therefore reduce costs, whilst ensuring remote automations are as robust as native automations.
"Ultima being recognised as the top partner in EMEA was measured by their sales, growth, and overall commitment to Citrix. The competition was very tough this year and Ultima stood out from the rest."
