Enterprise investments in RPA helped validate the benefits of automation. Today, enterprises are thinking more broadly about what automation is, how it is changing, and how they can enhance and extend ways to automate to gain even greater benefits. Automation is no longer a single technology but a portfolio of technologies aimed at speeding up operations, improving productivity, aligning operations with customer needs, and driving out unnecessary cost. Over the next five years, enterprises will be heavily focused on broadly applying automation to reshape how they operate. IDC's Business Automation Software and RPA Strategies focuses on the convergence of a portfolio of technologies — AI, machine learning, RPA, no code, process automation, decision automation, and process and task mining — and how these platforms change, grow, and compete to broaden out and pursue new areas of opportunity.
