Automation is getting more and more important as processes are becoming more and more automated. Actually, we are seeing human workers that are moving from repetitive and high-volume tasks to activities that require finer cognitive insight. What does it mean? Well, basically that it is necessary to have more sophisticated automation technologies. In this article we want to get deeper in the world of automation by making a comparison between hyperautomation and intelligent automation.
When we talk about hyperautomation and intelligent automation, we cannot omit robotic process automation (RPA) that, according to Gartner, “is a noninvasive integration technology used to automate routine, repetitive, and predictable tasks through orchestrated UI interactions that emulate human actions”. We can define two types of RPA:
- Assisted. Bots are deployed on an individual desktop and human workers accomplish certain aspects of the task, relying on the bot to do other more complex part of the process.
- Unassisted. Bots are deployed on a centralized server, allowing manual control. This RPA automate end-to-end tasks from a central point of control.
If RPA focus on automating repetitive rules-based processes, intelligent automation involves the use of automation technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), business process management (BPM), and of course robotic process automation (RPA) to streamline and scale tasks and decision-making across organizations.
Thanks to intelligent automation the processes are simpler, and it is possible to tackle complex tasks in real time and drastically workflows, unlocking new possibilities to create value and achieve sustained growth. As IBM reports, IA enables businesses to do the following:
- Reduce costs through workforce augmentation and productivity improvements.
- Increase process and data accuracy as well as quality through consistent processes, approaches, and Intelligent Business Process Management (IBPM).
- Improve the customer experience by providing faster response times, higher quality products and more accurate answers to inquiries.
- Address compliance and regulations with a consistent approach to security, reporting and many other processes.
- Respond to market and environmental changes. (Fluctuating markets and workforce behaviors, resulting from disruptors such as the COVID-19 pandemic, are a forcing function for change in many areas of business.)
Hyperautomation: when automation gets hyper
As we said, there is a difference between hyperautomation and intelligence automation. We have just talked about IA, now let’s concentrate on what hyperautomation is. To do so, we need to ask again the help of Gartner’s definition, which defines hyperautomation as “the combination of multiple machine learning, packaged software, and automation tools to deliver work”.
Basically, hyperautomation is the act of automating everything in a company that can be automated. The intent is to streamline processes using intelligent process automation (IPA), which includes AI, RPA, and other technologies to run without human intervention. Therefore, hyperautomation helps you to create more data that can be analyzed to understand process performance and can also focus on entire procedures that have structured and unstructured data.
It is not a coincidence that Gartner considers hyperautomation to be one of the top-10 strategic technology trends. In fact, according to Gartner, 85% of participants will “either increase or sustain their organization’s hyperautomation investments over the next 12 months, and over 56% already have four or more concurrent hyperautomation initiatives.”
So, what is the difference between hyperautomation and intelligent automation? Essentially, intelligent automation is comprised of RPA, AI, and ML. Hyperautomation is a business-driven approach that enterprises use to identify, vet, and automate as many business and IT processes as possible. For this reason, IA is often used within hyperautomation efforts.
