Blue Prism Launches Pioneering Learning Initiatives to Democratize RPA and Create Knowledge-Sharing Community

Blue Prism University and Learning Edition Provide Widespread Access to RPA Knowledge and Resources with Free 90 Day Learning Edition License

Sydney, AUSTRALIA – September 19, 2019 — To further support Robotic Process Automation (RPA) learning, collaboration and innovation, Blue Prism (AIM: PRSM), today announced the launch of two cutting-edge initiatives—Blue Prism University and Learning Edition.  
Blue Prism University is an online learning platform, available to all, that supports self-study, on-demand and in-person training on RPA basics and advanced topics—including the Blue Prism Foundation. The Learning Edition is a limited free trial version of Blue Prism that is tailored to those interested in learning more about intelligent automation or who want to become a certified Blue Prism developer. Both these initiatives underscore Blue Prism’s commitment to academic institutions and the ‘art of what is possible’ with RPA.
Regardless of one’s place along the RPA journey, there’s a need for ongoing learning opportunities and guidance. RPA software advances so quickly, and the possibilities of AI-enabled RPA expand daily, if not by the hour.
