UiPath 2021 FTS Release Series: Everything You Need to Know About The 21.4 Release


In our last major release (20.10), we added more than 100 advances to the core platform to help turn our vision of providing every company with the ability to become a fully automated enterprise™ into a reality.

Thank you to everyone who uses UiPath and provided feedback in the last six months about the additional capabilities that would help accelerate the transition to becoming a fully automated enterprise.

You'll see a lot of your feedback incorporated in our first major release of 2021 (21.4). 

In the 21.4 release, we've extended capabilities across the UiPath Platform for enterprises to manage every aspect of the automation lifecycle and successfully scale their entire automation program. That includes:

  • End-to-end governance and centralized control of your automation program (your CIO will love you for it)

  • Artificial intelligence (AI)-powered tools identify the automatable tasks that can yield a faster ROI (yes, discovery done for you)

  • Automation is easier and more enjoyable for employees in roles across the enterprise thanks to enhanced user experiences

  • Expanded Automation Cloud™ capabilities mean you can focus on your automation program, not your infrastructure

There’s a lot to unpack, so we’ve created the 21.4 release series (or 'box set') to walk you through everything.

Whether you have five minutes or 90 minutes, the release 'box set' has something for you.
