Automation Anywhere has tapped a cloud veteran to become the San Jose, Calif.-based RPA provider’s first chief product officer. Adi Kuruganti comes to Automation Anywhere after 15 years at Salesforce, where he most recently served as senior vice president and general manager of the Experience Cloud business unit.
Cloud delivery has been an emphasis for Automation Anywhere. Earlier this year, the company partnered with Google Cloud to offer customers using Google Cloud products to build automations within them. Kuruganti has been responsible for building cloud-first platforms at Salesforce including customer and partner portals, commerce storefronts, websites and mobile apps.
“During the pandemic, organizations accelerated their digital transformation initiatives as employees and customers transitioned to a hybrid work-from-anywhere model,” Kuruganti said. “Cloud-native intelligent automation became the critical technology powering this change. Automation Anywhere is the leader in cloud-based automation and I am excited to empower our customers with new, innovative automation solutions that unlock human potential and transform the way we work.”
