Gartner just released the Gartner Critical Capabilities for Robotic Process Automation.
This Gartner evaluation provides specific details on each vendor’s approach and overall ability to deliver on Robotic Process Automation market expectations and requirements. More, Gartner gives specific scores in different categories and use cases. UiPath ranked within the five highest scores across all three use cases including a rating of "Excellent" for "Integration using the application's user interface (UI)."
Gartner evaluated UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform and UiPath Go! for the report. Since that time, we’ve had our October release, which we think further improves our overall capabilities and now gives users new ways to manage the entire automation lifecycle.
A positive trend continues
We’re especially grateful for this evaluation because we feel it represents continued positive recognition from Gartner and validation that our capabilities are aligned with what the overall market is looking for.
For example, this summer, Gartner released the 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Robotic Process Automation Software, and UiPath achieved the highest and furthest overall position for our ability to execute and our completeness of vision. (In case you missed it, you can still download your own complimentary copy of the 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Robotic Process Automation.)
Poised for hyperautomation
Additionally, this news is further proof that UiPath is ready to build on the momentum created by Robotic Process Automation and deliver even more success in the area of hyperautomation.
It’s an important development. Gartner recently named hyperautomation as the number one trend in their Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2020 report, a view we agree with and support. In fact, with our recent product release, the UiPath platform is moving beyond task-based automation to now support more complex processes and automate long-running workflows.
In this way, have already taken steps to make sure the UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform is built for hyperautomation.
2019 has been a great year for UiPath, and we’re grateful for all these positive acknowledgments from Gartner, other independent research firms, and the market itself. But we’re especially grateful for the role our customers and partners have played in helping us achieve this success. We couldn’t have done it without you, and we look forward to even more joint success in 2020 and beyond.
