Automation Anywhere, Blue Prism, NICE and UiPath named as the world’s leading RPA technology vendors in Everest Group’s fourth release of Products PEAK Matrix Assessment
Everest Group today released its evaluation of 22 leading robotic process automation (RPA) technology vendors, a report designed to assist the growing number of enterprises, global in-house centers (GICs) and service providers that are investing in RPA technology.
With all the hype, it is easy to forget that RPA is still a burgeoning market with technologies that are relatively new to many potential buyers in terms of product features, deployment options, training and support, partner ecosystem and commercial models. The technologies are also evolving, with an expanding feature set and increasing richness of functionality.
In 2015, Everest Group became the first analyst firm to assess Service Delivery Automation technologies, including RPA and AI software applications. The report released today — Robotic Process Automation (RPA) – Technology Vendor Landscape with Products PEAK Matrix™ Assessment 2019 — is the fourth edition of this landmark research.
“The market for RPA technology is becoming more complex, with highly competitive and evolving product offerings,” said Sarah Burnett, executive vice president and distinguished analyst at Everest Group. “The Everest Group Products PEAK Matrix™ is an unbiased assessment that uncovers vendor and product differentiators to identify the leaders in RPA technology based on research that goes deep into the vendors performance and product details, features, functionalities and more.”
Everest Group classifies RPA technology vendors on the Everest Group Products PEAK Matrix™ into the three categories of Leaders, Major Contenders, and Aspirants:
- Leaders: Automation Anywhere, Blue Prism, NICE and UiPath
- Major Contenders: Another Monday, AntWorks, EdgeVerve, HelpSystems, Jacada, Jidoka, Kofax, Kryon, Pegasystems, Servicetrace, Softomotive, Thoughtonomy and WorkFusion
- Aspirants: AutomationEdge, Datamatics, Intellibot, Nintex and Nividous
AntWorks, Automation Anywhere, Datamatics, Softomotive and UiPath demonstrated the strongest year-over-year movement on both market impact and vision-and-capability dimensions and emerged as “2019 RPA Market Star Performers.”
Automation Anywhere, Blue Prism and UiPath are the top vendors in terms of RPA license revenue, closely followed by NICE. Pegasystems leads in terms of revenue from attended RPA (also known as robotic desktop automation, or RDA) licenses.
These findings and more are detailed in Robotic Process Automation (RPA) – Technology Vendor Landscape with Products PEAK Matrix™ Assessment 2019. In addition to providing the classification and detailed assessment of 22 RPA technology vendors, the report describes the competitive landscape of the RPA market, outlines key RPA technology trends, and provides a snapshot of the supply and demand for assisted RPA/RDA capabilities.
