Forrester Wave evaluates UiPath RPA
Enterprise automation software company UiPath has been named as a leader in the 2021 Forrester Wave for Robotic Process Automation (RPA).
Among the 14 vendors evaluated, UiPath earned the highest ranking in each of three categories – current offering, strategy, and market presence.
The company also received the highest possible scores in the criteria of product vision, performance, supporting products and services, partner ecosystem, delivery model, enterprise RPA customers, enterprise customers, and product revenue.
The Forrester Wave: Robotic Process Automation, Q1 2021 notes that UiPath "invested heavily in expanding its range of products to maximise the value that automation brings its customers."
The report, created by independent research firm Forrester Research, is widely respected in the RPA space.
It went on to say that UiPath "offers an enterprise-grade and innovative RPA solution augmented by a large ecosystem of partners, making it a good fit for large, global enterprises with demanding needs for support, and governance."
The report also noted that "the UiPath Marketplace, shared with Microsoft, Salesforce, Workday, and others, includes over 1,000 reusable components."
"The open platform integrates easily with enterprise applications like Google Workplace, Microsoft Office, Oracle, Salesforce, ServiceNow, and Workday."
The Wave examined the rapidly maturing RPA market. To assess and recognise the vendors driving the advancement of RPA, this year's evaluation includes criteria such as bot design and development; bot deployment, management, and analytics; bot governance, platform model, and security; and supporting products and services.
As part of Forrester's rigorous review process, the firm also analysed vendor surveys, conducted customer reference surveys, participated in product demos and examined expert interviews.
"Adoption of RPA continues to grow, and we're seeing significant demand from organisations around the world for our end-to-end automation platform and a team of experts," said UiPath Co-Founder and CEO Daniel Dines.
