We’re thrilled to share that Gartner has named UiPath a leader in the 2021 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Robotic Process Automation—for the third consecutive year.

We are both proud and humbled to have been recognized once again among the 18 robotic process automation (RPA) vendors evaluated by Gartner. The UiPath Platform is designed to support enterprises on their journey toward complete digital transformation, improving efficiency, and making people’s work more fulfilling and strategic. This consistent positioning illustrates our dedication to customer satisfaction and innovation. Once again, we’re reiterating our commitment to drive innovation through end-to-end automation and to help businesses thrive with technology.

Recently, UiPath has also been recognized as a 2020 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Robotic Process Automation Software. Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice recognizes the vendors that are the mostly highly rated by their customers through the Customers' Choice distinction.

Enabling the automation journey

Business operations around the globe have completely transformed since the beginning of 2020. Today, it’s more apparent than ever that organizations must equip themselves with resilient, forward-thinking software that helps them get (and stay) ahead.

Moreover, the business landscape requires that entities who want to make a strong mark are agile. The ability to adapt and remain nimble in the face of challenges isn’t just a nice-to-have—it’s a necessity in the modern world.

The need for organizations to adapt and remain nimble has resulted in an increasing demand for automation. According to the Harvard Business Review, “virtually every business process and function can be improved through some degree of IA [intelligent automation]. Yet many organizations either aren’t moving forward fast enough to keep pace with change, or they’re rushing ahead with isolated projects but without a greater plan.”

Looking ahead at the future of RPA

Being named a leader in the 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Robotic Process Automation is a chance not only to see how far we’ve come, but to look ahead to how much yet we have to do together.

2021 marks a great milestone for the RPA ecosystem as we exceed 1.5 million UiPath Community members. As the largest automation community in the world, we take our impact seriously—pursuing the vision of empowering every employee with a robot and thriving to unlock human potential. Whether you’re a customer, a freelancer, or an automation beginner, we strive to create a world of automation that’s accessible and innovative for all who join.

Thank you to our customers, partners, and all who use UiPath. We’re grateful for your support and feedback.
