Automation has become one of the most important technologies for digital enterprises. Robotic process automation (RPA) tools have made its way to almost every organization to make process automation easier.
Prior to RPA, organizations have relied on complex code for automation, but RPA has made it easier to implement and adopt. RPA bots work like a human using user interfaces (UIs) of common application like SAP, Salesforce, Service Desk and Microsoft Office.
But RPA is limited to automate only simple tasks with predefined rules and structured data. This leads to the automation in silos and limited to repetitive tasks. There is a need of more mature and advanced solution to automate critical tasks. Gartner’s report on Top 10 Technology Trends for 2020 has mentioned one such technology, Hyperautomation.
What is Hyperautomation?
According to Gartner, “Hyperautomation refers to an effective combination of complementary sets of tools that can integrate functional and process silos to automate and augment business processes.”
We at AutomationEdge are excited about Hyperautomation as it aligns with our vision of work.
Hyperautomation is built on few key technologies like RPA, process mining, process discovery, iBPMS, iPaaS and low code. Hyperautomation suggests achieving digital supremacy with process optimization, integration and automation.
Digital businesses need to scale automation enterprise-wide to remain competitive. Gartner sees it as an unavoidable state for businesses and need a change in strategy to achieve it.
Scope of automation:
With Hyperautomation, scope of automation changes from rule-based repetitive tasks to more complex, long-running process. Businesses need to connect more dots to achieve end-to-end automation.
Range of tools:
RPA is not enough anymore, companies need to integrate more tools and technologies like machine learning and artificial intelligence to achieve greater results.

Cross-functional initiative and integration is needed to achieve an end-to-end automation. Departmental tools and their integrations will play an important role.
Hyperautomation will explode the automation capabilities of the organizations. It will enable organizations breaking the inter-functional boundaries and achieve end-to-end automation. Hyperautomation will automate the processes which thought to be the work of domain experts only. It will enable adaptive and intelligence processes which will select the next best course of action instead of same repetitive activities.
AutomationEdge is one of the first automation tools to hold Hyperautomation capabilities. Its inbuilt technologies like RPA, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, iPaaS, data ingestion, technology integrations enables to provide Hyperautomation solution to its customers.
