Inaugural Magic Quadrant for RPA Software Recognizes Automation Anywhere
The 2019 Magic Quadrant for Robotic Process Automation Software is Gartner’s first evaluation of vendors in the rapidly-growing robotic process automation (RPA) market. Gartner estimates that “by 2021, 90 percent of large and midsize organizations will have at least one process supported by RPA”2. According to equity research firm KeyBanc Capital Markets, RPA has emerged as a $100 billion market opportunity3.
RPA is a fast-evolving technology which leverages software bots working side-by-side with employees to automate repetitive, mundane tasks – liberating people to focus on higher-level business initiatives that only humans are capable of providing. The RPA industry is growing at an unprecedented rate because of the high levels of efficiency and productivity achieved from intelligent automation.
Automation Anywhere’s customers span multiple continents and industries, and now include 90 percent of the world’s top healthcare companies, and more than 85 percent of the world’s top banks and financial services companies. The company has also deployed its solution to hundreds of mid-enterprise companies, making it the most widely deployed RPA solution.
“To us, being named a Leader in the 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant is a testament to our unrelenting focus on fueling customer success, with an advanced platform designed for the unique needs of each end user – for enterprises, developers and IT leaders, even students and first-time users,” said Gary Conway, Chief Marketing Officer, Automation Anywhere. “We have dedicated the last 15 years to create and develop the RPA category and will continue to execute on our vision, pushing the boundaries of what’s possible with intelligent automation to unlock innovation and unleash human potential.”
