Automation Anywhere Ranks #1 in Top 10 RPA Products


Automation Anywhere, a global leader in robotic process automation (RPA), announced it has received the #1 ranking in HFS's second annual "Top 10 Robotic Process Automation Software Products" for the second straight year. The RPA ranking is based on interviews with more than 350 customers and product partners across leading RPA software products on the ability to execute, innovate and generate customer success. Automation Anywhere ranked highest for its technology, roadmap and vision after having been the first company to introduce a web-based, cloud-native RPA platform (Enterprise A2019), the first automation marketplace (Bot Store) and first dedicated analytics engine (Bot Insight) and IQ Bot, an AI-driven intelligent document processing solution that allows business users to process complex documents. "Increased adoption of automation will continue to be a strategic priority and captivate organizations exploring RPA in this new decade," said Phil Fersht, CEO and chief analyst, HFS. "Our latest ranking identifies the top RPA products from leading vendors, such as Automation Anywhere, that dramatically reduce cost and infrastructure barriers to RPA implementation and hold the promise of cost savings and improved productivity."

Latest IT staffers: Software robots for data entry and process tasks


The next member of your company's IT team might be a robot. Not the kind you'd typically see working on a factory assembly line, but a software tool that performs multiple digital tasks in an automated way. The market for robotic process automation (RPA), in which a software "robot" replicates the actions of humans such as entering data into an enterprise resource planning (ERP) platform, is slowly emerging as organizations look for ways to improve efficiencies and cut costs. Companies can configure RPA software to capture and interpret the actions of their existing applications used in a variety business processes. Once the software has been "trained" to grasp certain processes, it can automatically manipulate data, communicate with other systems, and process transactions as needed.

New Research Shows that Businesses have Passed the Tipping Point Towards Universal Intelligent Automation Adoption


The "Report for the State of RPA and Smart Automation" interviewed more than 1,000 business executives in North America and found that while 75.3 percent believe automation will make them more competitive, significant disparities exist between industries – with public sector and surprisingly, technology companies lagging significantly when it comes to adoption. While more than half of businesses in North America have already implemented some type of automation solution, such as RPA and AI, the research uncovered notable differences between industries. For instance, nearly nine in 10 manufacturing organizations have already adopted some form of intelligent automation, compared to less than three in 10 public sector organizations. Despite these identified barriers to overcome, nine in 10 organizations that have not yet implemented RPA and AI-based automation solutions report having sufficient internal technical competencies to do so, showing that technical implementation is no longer a significant hurdle for most organizations. "Intelligent automation marks a quantum leap for humanity, and like the early stages of the internet, companies that do not adapt to this new reality risk becoming obsolete," said Daniel Newman, founder and principal analyst at Futurum Research.
