In version 6.4, Blue Prism reorganized how it presents automation-relevant tasks to designers and process owners. The new architecture divides automation work into six areas, which Blue Prism terms Intelligent Automation Skills, as follow.

• Knowledge & Insight is defined as the ability to harvest, understand & deliver insights from disparate data sources
• Learning is defined as the ability to adapt to evolving process patterns & derive contextual meaning
• Visual Perception is defined as the ability to read, understand & contextualize visual information
• Problem Solving is defined as the ability to solve logic, business, and system problems autonomously
• Collaboration is defined as the ability to work seamlessly alongside people & systems.
• Planning & Sequencing is defined as the ability to optimize workloads & discover opportunities for better outcomes.

More than just marketing nomenclature, this taxonomy frames how Blue Prism divides skills in its design environment and in Digital Exchange (q.v.), so that automation designers can more easily locate and utilize application tools and downloadable content relevant to the work at hand.
