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 those who want to become a certified Blue Prism developer.
Finally! It was long overdue. Does anyone remember the former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer’s “developers, developers, developers, developers” dance?
Blue Prism seemingly resisted the self-study trend by keeping the serious-buyers-only vibe – until now. It stands in stark comparison to, say, UiPath; it has had such options available for years. I believe the cheapest self-training course I’ve seen for Blue Prism last year was still well over $2,000.
However, the long road to RPA’s widespread adoption is far from over. On organizational change, I often quip that such change comes “technology first, process hopefully, people begrudgingly.” Still, having many RPA solutions to try without an organizational sponsorship is the first step to democratizing automation.
