Hyperautomation Examples: 4 Ways to Leverage the Technology

With the Corona Crisis, a greater need for businesses to streamline workforces has emerged. Automation allows businesses to increase productivity, lower costs and reduce risk, and is therefore an essential component in this streamlining.

Hyperautomation, which was coined as a term by Gartner in 2020 and declared as “an unavoidable market state”, further enhances the capabilities of automation by increasingly helping organizations visualize how functions, processes and key performance indicators interact to drive value.

Hyperautomation is, in other words, an expansion of automation that lets robots increasingly perform tasks that humans otherwise would.

But exactly what tasks can hyperautomation be used for, and which businesses and industries is it most relevant to? These are questions that have surfaced in the wake of this trend.

Which industries is hyperautomation relevant to?

Hyperautomation is relevant in many industries, from banking and insurance to health and life science. There are virtually no limits to where hyperautomation can be leveraged. It’s more a matter of where the largest return on implementing hyperautomation can be found. 

For this reason, it’s more relevant to look at specific use cases for hyperautomation, as well as which underlying technologies it utilizes to deliver its value.

Examples of hyperautomation

Generic examples or use cases for hyperautomation include:

  • Understanding documents using OCR (Optical Character Recognition)
  • Understanding emails using NLP (Natural Language Processing)
  • Forecast stocks and automate restocking
  • Enhancing automation flows using AI/ML (Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning)

As with any technology, implementing hyperautomation requires a strategic approach and the right toolbox to deliver value. Unscalable, partial solutions that don’t give you an instant ROI won’t get you where you need to be in time.
