Share Article

What does RPA have in store for us in the post-pandemic future? WeAreBrain writer, Samantha Wolhuter, compiled a shortlist of RPA trend predictions for 2021 and beyond.

As RPA has become more popular during COVID times, these four trends are helping the technology find further traction among businesses across all sectors:

1. IPA will come to the fore
Intelligent Process Automation (IPA) blends the rules-based automation capabilities of RPA with the sophistication of AI, together with the trial-and-error learning capabilities of Machine Learning and fundamental process redesign.

2. Rise in global business RPA capacity
As RPA technology improves, so must an organisation’s capacity to improve add-on and advanced features and functionalities to their portfolios to accommodate the changes. This will likely come in the form of new and updated licences and larger core capacities to handle the higher loads of traffic and processing requirements.

3. Hyperautomation will become prevalent
As a smarter, faster, and more sophisticated ‘big brother’ of RPA, hyperautomation is set to become widely used across large-scale enterprises. Harnessing the power of AI, RPA, and Machine Learning (ML), hyperautomation is designed to process massive volumes of data end-to-end seamlessly to optimise business processes across multiple and diverse areas.

4. RPA will not only be used in IT
RPA is no longer considered a ‘new’ technology as many organisations use it in varying capacities. As the benefits of the technology are witnessed across multiple businesses processes and departments, its adoption is likely to increase into areas that are not specifically IT-related.

“The global RPA industry is not simply gaining in popularity across the board, it is now rightfully being viewed as the future for global business.” says Samantha Wolhuter “Now is the time to get to grips with the technology because it will continue to be prolific in the years to come.”
