More UiPath funding analysis, RPA's Sweetspot, and Recruiting Automation

RPA Weekly for July 21st, 2020

UiPath’s $225M Round: What Does This Mean For RPA (Robotic Process Automation)?

“The funding for UiPath is consistent with our view of a technology at the proverbial inflection point,” said Adib Ghubril, who is the research director at Info-Tech Research Group. “IBM has actively sought to strengthen its position in this market since the beginning of the year. Indeed, many believed that Automation Anywhere or UiPath would be the target. The fact that IBM opted for a much smaller player–WDG Automation–suggests that the big three–Automation Anywhere, BluePrism, and UiPath–are liking their odds of going-it-alone, at least for now.”

Finding the sweet spot for RPA in the Covid-19 response

RPA can smooth some working from home bumps amid the Covid-19 crisis, but don’t expect it to solve everything.

However, organisations are playing with fire if they drop RPA into the middle of the Covid-19 work-from-home scramble. Knowledge workers are already pulling their hair out trying to figure out how to do their jobs under standard operating procedures while working from home. Expecting those beleaguered workers to rethink and reprogram those processes from home feels like a recipe for disaster.
