Quite recently, Gartner shared a reprint on the necessity for the enterprise architecture and technology innovation leaders to look beyond Robotic process automation (RPA) and target on delivering end-to-end automation. This is more of a strategically defined approach and the focus lies on both the tactical and strategic goals of an Enterprise. This essentially involves following a more integrated approach by augmenting RPA with its counterparts like AI, ML, NLP, ETL. Gartner coined this as ‘Hyperautomation’.
The need to look Beyond RPA
Enterprise architects and technology innovation leaders focus more on tactical automation over a strategic roadmap. Without any doubt, Robotic process automation is great when it involves automating the more functional, tactical, routine needs of an enterprise, however, for the complex processes, it’s just not enough. Thinking of larger, strategic-level business objectives, it needs to be combined with the complimentary technologies to succeed in the strategic output. Gartner states that “By 2022, 65% of organizations that deployed robotic process automation will introduce artificial intelligence, machine learning, and natural language processing algorithms.”The approach, thus, must shift on the end-to-end automation by integrating the functional and process silos.
Three (strategic) Musketeers to enable Hyperautomation
Some still confuse Hyperautomation with IT automation, they are not the same. While Automation is about optimizing a process or a task, Hyperautomation is an additional layer of ‘intelligent’ automation, i.e., adding artificial brains to IT automation.
Hyperautomation is a strategic jump and is here to stay. Let’s understand how does a business gets going with Hyperautomation. Gartner has laid out three key strategies to help enable Hyperautomation in organizations- Planning, Applying, and Augmenting.
