Minimum requirements and components

SS&C | Blue Prism® Decipher IDP is a production ready IDP solution, closely integrated with SS&C | Blue Prism® Enterprise. We recommend that you deploy Decipher IDP on dedicated hardware to better support scalability as your use of Decipher IDP increases. We also recommend installing and testing Decipher IDP in a non-production environment prior to using it in a live environment.

Decipher IDP is designed to provide an on-premise solution and is not supported in SS&C | Blue Prism Cloud at this time.
