Symphony Helping Define Intelligent Process Automation


Symphony Defining Intelligent Process Automation

Industry leaders are defining the field of intelligent process automation. Symphony will be working alongside other organizations including Blue Prism, Ascension, Automation Anywhere, and the Institute for Robotic Process Automation, to define intelligent automation terminology and concepts through IEEE. The working group will address a wide range of technologies such as Robotic Process Automation (RPA), Artificial Intelligence, Cognitive Computing, and Machine Learning.

The IEEE Standards Association, a body within IEEE globally renowned for setting industry standards, has approved the project, titled IEEE P2755: Guide to Terms and Concepts in Software Based Intelligent Process Automation.

The project describes its role as “promoting clarity and consistency in the use of Software Based Intelligent Process Automation (SBIPA) terminology. The definitions represent the consensus of a diverse panel of industry participants.This standard is intended to provide a set of definitions established by and for the community involved with Software Based Intelligent Process Automation (SBIPA) so that when terminology is used all understand the meaning.”

“With a diverse panel of industry participants coming together to formalize a path forward, IEEE P2755 can build consensus for intelligent process automation terminology that sets the stage for collaborative standards development in a number of emerging fields,” said Lee Coulter, chair, IEEE Guide to Terms and Concepts in Intelligent Process Automation Working Group. “It’s important to establish a framework now that can evolve in step with related industry developments to ensure a commonality for understanding related products, services and concepts, and to help advance the market space for the benefit of all.”
