Data has always been at the core of the research published by HFS. Cornerstone activities have been tracking the IT and business service supplier landscape, collecting key financial data from the industry, creating models which are used to create our Top 25 IT services and our Top 50 BPO provider list. Our diverse suite of data-driven offerings aims to provide our clients with one place for their data needs.
HFS RPA Product Selector
The RPA Product Selector allows users to choose the relative importance of 35+ RPA product assessment dimensions. Based on the selected criteria, it recommends the top 5 RPA products that best suit the customized requirements. The tool leverages data inputs from 359 super users of RPA (enterprises, advisors, and service providers) across 10 leading RPA products (Antworks, Automation Anywhere, Blue Prism, Kofax, Kryon, Nice, Pega, Thoughtonomy, UiPath, and Workfusion) to make these product recommendations.
The recommendations from the tool change based on the relative importance of the underlying criteria across product functionality, integration and support, security and governance, flexibility and scalability, embedded intelligence, and realizing business outcomes. You can remove individual criteria, make them less important or elevate them as crucial to your requirements.
