WISeKey arago AI Technology Deployed by NEORIS to Launch Smart AMS

NEORIS Smart AMS is a next-generation managed applications and infrastructure service using AI-powered Knowledge Automation to create greater operational efficiency and lower operating costs.

Geneva, January 25, 2021 – WISeKey International Holding Ltd (“WISeKey”, SIX: WIHN / Nasdaq: WKEY), a recognized leader in cybersecurity and IoT, announced today the signing of a strategic partnership between arago GmbH (“arago”), a leading business process automation software company based in Frankfurt, and NEORIS, a leading global digital accelerator based in Miami to bring to market NEORIS’ Smart AMS solution.

Of note, in November 2020, WISeKey reached a binding agreement to acquire a 51% majority interest stake in arago.  The acquisition of a controlling interest in arago is the initial step in an overall transaction which would lead to a combination of the businesses of WISeKey and arago during calendar year 2021.

Smart AMS is a NEORIS next-generation managed applications and infrastructure service powered by Knowledge Automation, arago’s industry-leading Artificial Intelligence (AI) business process automation software. Customers can leverage the Smart AMS offering to break through the existing scale limitations of RPA and other existing process automation software, achieving up to three times higher automation rates and up to twice the cost savings.

Businesses need to do more with fewer resources and existing automation approaches are no longer delivering the required operational efficiencies to remain competitive. Confronted with long delays in problem resolution due to manual processes and the need to supervise automations such as RPA, customers are looking for true digital transformation that delivers on the urgent need for operational efficiency. The NEORIS Smart AMS solution leverages Knowledge Automation, replacing RPA, to accelerate customer digital transformations through end-to-end AI powered automation.

Knowledge Automation, developed by arago and the core of the HIRO product, takes a unique approach to process automation by using AI to autonomously and independently determine how to complete and then automate end-to-end tasks based on real time contextual data. Fully auditable and only using steps defined and approved by the customer, Knowledge Automation delivers significantly higher automation rates at a much lower operational cost.  

“We are thrilled to partner with arago to provide our clients with an accelerated digital transformation using AI Knowledge Automation that maximizes their service efficiency and speed while dramatically reducing costs,” said Marcos Acosta, Chief Operating Officer at NEORIS. “Smart AMS will make an impactful difference on our clients’ businesses and enable them to meet market demands.”

“arago is excited to partner with NEORIS given their vast experience and expertise in Managed Services to bring the benefits of Knowledge Automation to a larger customer base,” said arago’s founder Hans-Christian Boos. “We are proud to help make Smart AMS the leading next generation Managed Applications and Infrastructure service.”
