What is hyperauntomation? 

Hyperautomation is the latest buzzword in the tech world.

The term ‘hyperautomation’ was coined in 2019 by Gartner, an IT research and advisory firm.

Hyperautomation provides the means to strategically deploy various automation technologies separately or in tandem, augmented by AI and machine learning.

It attempts to fill in the gaps and limitations that the use of robotic process automation (RPA) initially presented for automation across enterprises.

Complex as it sounds, it means that hyperautomation is a process of transcending automation as by adding a layer of intelligence to it.

Also called ‘intelligent automation’, it ventures into uncharted territory where digital platforms control entire business processes, direct human workflow, link similar tasks and automate them.

Hyperautomation is essentially a manager in the form of a computer that uses artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, robotic process automation, etc., to manage multiple businesses.

You can think of hyperautomation as a scaled, higher level of automation.

Automation generally makes individual tasks more effortless, more cost-effective, and less in need of manual intervention.

On the other hand, with hyperautomation, many related tasks can be automated, forming a link of intelligent automation, reducing human intervention to mere supervision.
