Digital Acceleration Trends of 2022 (Here’s what we are predicting)
Will Hyperautomation work?
As the world returns to the post Covid era, organisations are taking every effort to ensure no lags, and no loopholes in deliverables. Hyperautomation is a continuing process that can substantially improve business processes, speed up and better the operations.
Hyperautomation is an infrastructure of technologies to scale automation aspects of business processes beyond individual input. The initial notch is to identify time consuming business procedures and arrive at a means to automate them.
Complex actions that require human input, analysis, or decision making, can be established by tools by creating bots to automate the processes, like Robotic Process Automation (RPA), machine learning (ML), and AI – hyperautomation is a channel for real digital transformation.
Foreseen as a trend that will enable change in functioning and business operations across several sectors in the coming months, hyperautomation can make work more human by automating business processes.
Organisations are to have intelligent data virtualization that provides a single, secured and governed workspace for distributed data.
