HfS Blueprint Snapshot: RPA Providers
WHAT THIS BLUEPRINT SNAPSHOT REPORT COVERS
In the 2017 RPA Blueprint Snapshot, we cover the innovation in service delivery with a focus on RPA, Cognitive Computing, and AI. The aim is to drive a more holistic understanding of automation at large and RPA in particular, and to understand how providers are driving RPA across a diverse set of use case and into new scenarios such as Application Management.
KEY MARKET DYNAMICS
- "Free RPA" products won't disrupt the market: WorkFusion's "RPA Express" will not disrupt the market, but might impact valuations as part of M&A activities.
- Exponential growth is setting in below the radar: Despite a lack of stakeholder management and communication, the scale in deployments is increasing strongly with the market moving toward transformational projects
- Lack of definitions and the common language: Even though nothing is defined, the common denominator (and at the same time, the lever for disruption) is the de-coupling of service delivery from labor arbitrage. At the same time, there is lots of smoke and mirror, in particular, the blurring differences of RPA vs. RDA and the necessity to code and script when deploying projects
- Disruption is nigh: the Disruption will happen not just in the long-term future or in back-office or offshore activities. Instead, the disruption will encompass the entirety of knowledge work.
