Blue Prism® has created a new value-added distribution (VAD) model by partnering with StarLink, the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa (META) region’s fastest growing specialized cyber and cloud value-added distributor.

This new model aligns with Blue Prism’s broader mission to help organizations around the world easily access Blue Prism technology and services and contributes to the business’s globalisation efforts:

  • To expand Blue Prism’s presence in key geographies.
  • To acquire new customers and better serve existing customers.
  • To onboard new partners.
  • To accelerate regional growth in untapped markets.

Addressing automation goals

Blue Prism and StarLink will establish a unified distribution process with deeper engagements and competency

Blue Prism and StarLink will establish a unified distribution process with deeper engagements and competency within the StarLink extensive channel community to help address regional customers’ automation goals.

The partnership will provide Blue Prism with extensive visibility into the new business market and will facilitate expansion of the Blue Prism partner eco-system.

Intelligent automation practice

Having launched its Blue Prism intelligent automation practice, StarLink and its channel partners within the cyber security and cloud practices will benefit from access to key partners and their best-of-breed technologies within Blue Prism’s partner ecosystem; the Technology Alliance Program (TAP).

In addition, StarLink’s current security distribution network and Blue Prism’s TAP program have overlapping partners, including Sailpoint, Thales, and OneIdentity. This overlap enables these and other security partners in the StarLink Connect Partner network to realize the value of using Blue Prism’s intelligent automation platform with their own capabilities, giving customers better automation options and serving their needs in the high growth cyber security market.

Automation and artificial intelligence landscape

"Our partnership with StarLink represents a positive step for us in the region, as Blue Prism technology is rapidly made available to its customers. StarLink will also be providing local resources and professional services for product implementation and support, which expands the scope of our presence in the Middle East and will help us in accelerating the revenue generated by our partners in the region," said Linda Dotts, Chief Partner Strategy Officer, Blue Prism.

"The intelligent automation and artificial intelligence landscape holds huge potential in the META region, with Blue Prism at the forefront of this next-generation technology. We feel privileged that Blue Prism chose us as their first value-added distributor. This is both a huge responsibility and opportunity, but we are well-equipped to take this on and look forward to adding value to this great partnership," said Zaidoun ArbadCOO, StarLink.

What Are The New Developments In Facial Recognition?
What Are The New Developments In Facial Recognition?

Facial recognition is a mature technology that continues to change and evolve. New innovations such as artificial intelligence (AI) are expanding facial recognition capabilities, even as privacy concerns, though often misguided, undermine wider acceptance in the market. We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: What are the new developments in facial recognition?

The Global Biometrics Trends Review
The Global Biometrics Trends Review

The global biometrics market has been recently developing rapidly, and this trend will continue shortly. If in 2018 its volume was estimated at $23.4 billion, according to the forecast of the analytical company BCC Research, the market size may increase to $71.6 billion with an average annual growth rate of 23.2 % by 2024. Fingerprint scanning, facial recognition, iris, vein, and voice technologies are expected to be implemented at the fastest pace. The analysis is based on the revenue indicators of key players depending on segments, including hardware, software, and integration. Biometric electronic documents Another analytical Agency, Acuity Research, estimates that the number of biometric electronic IDs will increase by about 3.5 billion electronic documents in the world. Moreover, more than half of the UN member States issue biometric passports. Government and private contracts of Canada, the United States, Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, Lithuania, Hungary, Bangladesh, Senegal, and other countries are examples of implementation of programs for the transition to biometric electronic documents. Government organizations in various countries believe that biometrics is one of the most effective ways to identify refugees and those who cross the border. Now there are a lot of projects which are based on biometric technology. Biometric identification system Perhaps one of the most ambitious is the Aadhaar project being implemented in India Perhaps one of the most ambitious is the Aadhaar project being implemented in India. It is a biometric identification system that contains the data of more than a billion people. The database contains about 10 billion fingerprint templates, two billion iris templates, and a billion photos. There is another ambitious project at the Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, where RecFaces company has implemented a passenger facial identification ready-made solution, that helps the security guards to receive notifications about airport visitors in just a few seconds and increase the efficiency of security services at least by 30%. The introduction of biometric identification of passengers aimed at increasing the level of airport security, as well as quickly obtaining information about the detection of wanted persons, stored in the long-term archive. Automated control gates As another example, face match is used at border checks to compare the portrait on a digitized biometric passport with the holder's face. In 2017, Thales company was responsible for supplying the new automated control gates for the system of Automated Fast Track Crossing at External Borders at Roissy Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris. This solution has been devised to facilitate evolution from fingerprint recognition to facial recognition This solution has been devised to facilitate evolution from fingerprint recognition to facial recognition during. Governmental systems, SmartCity, airports projects using identification technologies day by day become our reality and influence the growth of the biometrics market globally. Countries are studying the experience of each other and adopting it. Paperless payment technologies The global market of biometrics will shift all industries, starting from the transportation facilities especially airports, where a transition from traditional VMS and ACS to paperless biometric self-Boarding systems will be carried out. Sports facilities will see the development of paperless payment technologies at cash desks, and the banking sector — the payment systems with remote customer identification. HoReCa will transfer from staff time tracking systems to biometric payment systems, biometric check—in systems and the use of biometric identifiers. To sum up there are two most significant drivers of this growth are surveillance in the public sector and numerous other applications in diverse market segments.

What Are New Trends In Residential Security?
What Are New Trends In Residential Security?

Residential security and smart homes are rapidly changing facets of the larger physical security marketplace, driven by advances in consumer technology and concerns about rising crime rates. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many people spent more time at home and became more aware of the need for greater security. As workplaces opened back up, returning workers turned to technology to help them keep watch over their homes from afar. We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: What are the trends in residential security in 2021?
