Automation is not enough – hyperautomation is needed

As more and more organizations want to automate all types of business processes to reduce costs and improve efficiency, hyperautomation is expected to become a priority for many.

Hyperautomation uses several process automation components, integrating technologies such as Robotics Process Automation (RPA), which serves as the core – artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, process intelligence, data analytics and other advanced automation tools. 
Working together, they provide “hyperautomation” that takes automation to a whole new level.

Market drivers include the digitalization and automation of production processes around the world, as well as the growing demand for RPA technology

In addition, hyperautomatic system vendors collaborate with various companies to create and offer RPA solutions. Many manufacturing companies are implementing hyperautomation to reduce operating costs and improve overall process efficiency.

Several steps are recommended for companies that want to implement hyperautomation

1) Stimulate implementation in the organization and avoid possible errors on the way to hyperautomation by involving business units, IT, security and safeguard functions. This will help stimulate implementation within the organization and avoid possible errors on the way to hyperautomation.

2) Plan your way towards hyperautomization by focusing on a wider range of business functions and knowledge. Design your strategy and architecture using a suite of tools, including RPA, intelligent business process management suites (iBPMS), the integration platform as a service (iPaaS) and solution management tools. This is the only way to effectively use the related components.

3) Avoid the hype by carefully checking RPA proposals and their ecosystems. Focus on the capabilities of your suppliers to achieve results critical to your organization in several areas.

Success in these initiatives will lead organizations to change their funding models, so that all initiatives for new processes will consider basic automation funding as part of the business model.
