The 2019 - 2020 Robotic Process Automation Product and Market Report provides an in-depth analysis of this market, including comprehensive coverage of the competitive landscape, vendors and offerings.

The detailed product comparisons and analyses presented in the Report are intended to assist companies in identifying and selecting the right RPA solutions to meet their current and future needs. The Report features 4 vendors who offer solutions that address service, contact center, back-office, and other enterprise uses: Jacada, NICE, UiPath and Verint. OnviSource is covered at a high level.

RPA is helping organizations improve productivity, reduce costs, mitigate risk, improve operational efficiency, oversee internal processes, and improve regulatory compliance. These automated tools can also help to reduce systems and IT development costs and extend the life of applications throughout the enterprise.

A new staffing paradigm

Organizations are using RPA in a hybrid staffing model, where the technology works side by side or as a virtual assistant to humans. RPA solutions can assist by looking up information in a knowledge base, auto-completing forms with data obtained from internal or external sources, and much more. RPA can also fully automate processes that do not require human cognitive capabilities, freeing workers to perform more interesting and rewarding tasks.

These automated capabilities are changing the responsibilities of employees and the dynamics of contact centers and back-office functions, for the better. Human employees, however, feel threatened by the rapid emergence of the automated workforce. Companies are encouraged to build Centers of Excellence (CoEs) and training programs to improve and extend the usefulness of their organizations' human capital in this age of artificial intelligence.

High demand in a rapidly expanding market

The RPA market is experiencing hockey-stick growth, expanding by over 100% during the past year. The publisher expects this remarkable rate of adoption to continue for the next few years, as many opportunities remain for organizations to benefit from this automation. RPA vendors are facing extraordinary demand for their products and support services. RPA is still a relatively new IT sector, and the RPA vendors are experiencing growing pains in this rapidly expanding market. One of the biggest opportunities is in the area of training. Customers are looking to their vendors for guidance, professional services and best practices to succeed with their RPA initiatives.
