Recently leading RPA firm UiPath, released its report – “Automation Accelerates” which shares insights on the top automation trends in 2022. As a leading UiPath implementation partner, we provide expertise with next-generation RPA offerings built on UiPath’s automation platform and we are seeing significant adoption of these trends by our customers across verticals and sectors

In this blog, we take a look at leading 5 automation trends in 2022 which is disrupting and empowering the digital transformation of the business sector

#Trend 1

 CIO’s will play a deeper role in deciding on automation strategy

Automation is becoming one of the leading priorities for C-level executives to drive digital transformation.CIOs are increasingly getting deeply involved in devising business and IT strategies for enhancing enterprise agility. They are viewing automation to be the key enabler in transforming business.

The C-level teams are now expecting CIOs to take the lead role to plan and roll out the entire automation strategy. CIO needs to devise both strategic and implementation plans to enhance the enterprise’s automation capability with better-centralized governance, visibility across the entire enterprise, and enhanced control. They would need to strategically plan to consolidate all disparate It systems and ramp up the automation skills and capabilities to deliver the right business outcomes.


#Trend 2

RPA will emerge as the strongest technology in the extended automation platform ecosystem.

Business process automation (BPA), integration platforms as a service (iPaaS), low-code application platforms (LCAPs), artificial intelligence (AI) platforms, and end-to-end RPA platforms—are all emerging key components of extended automation platforms.

Though numerous technologies are seen as the next-generation automation technology, RPA will still emerge as the core technology around which all other automation activities and technologies will orbit—and function as RPA – plus.

“RPA-plus” platforms are enhancing and modernizing the capabilities of adjacent platforms and can integrate seamlessly with existing technologies.


#Trend 3

Automation would be the new engagement  layer in the enterprise stack

Robots will play a prominent role in bringing together different applications, systems, and software—to integrate all the business processes.

Enterprises will work to add an automation layer to the top of their application stack to link applications and systems of records—along with key governance, maintenance, and developer capabilities.

This new engagement layer is helping enterprises to realign and reimagine their business processes and offering new approaches to enhance the efficiency of their workforce.


#Trend 4

Automation CoEs will help  to deliver higher success rates and ROI for AI initiatives

AI deployment and execution are normally lengthy and getting a good ROI from the investment is difficult.

Automation CoE teams are now expanding their purview beyond process automation to also cover AI and ML deployment. Leading-edge companies are now using automation to put models into production and bring AI and machine learning (ML) into the front lines of actions, decision-making, and analysis.

Ready-made workflows can easily bring models into front-line decision-making and analysis, and new capabilities like drag-and-drop model insertion and continuous automated model improvement can make AI deployment simpler than ever


#Trend 5

Cloud-native architectures will be embraced  to deliver platform capabilities to give better flexibility

While choosing an automation platform, there is increasing demand for more flexibility and less lock-in to a particular delivery model. This is leading to  automation technology companies to develop platforms that can be delivered from software as a service (SaaS) to on-premises with minimal upheaval and disruption

Automation providers are increasingly embracing cloud-native architectures that leverage containerization and microservices to deliver various platform capabilities however and wherever the customer wants them.

In 2022, additional delivery innovations are anticipated, making it even easier to install, manage, and upgrade on-premises automation platforms—and reducing the total cost of ownership (TCO) for every deployment.
