Hyperautomation Examples: 4 Ways of Leveraging the Technology

As the current economic crisis unfolds, 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 only recently coined as a term by Gartner 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.

Read: Hyperautomation: What, Why and How?

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 such as banking and insurance. 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) 

Watch: Hyperautomation use case

The first of these is described in further detail by AI automation specialist Florin Manole in the video clip from our webinar on hyperautomation below.

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 fast.

Best Practices for Building Maintainable and Scalable Test Automation

There’s a major difference between automating twenty test cases and automating 2000 test cases; while it’s completely possible to take an ad-hoc approach when there are only a few test cases, it becomes an entirely different story when test cases run into the thousands.

How to Build Stable Test Automation

Test automation brings many benefits with it, such as increased execution and reduced risk. But these benefits may be diminished if the tests aren’t performing as intended. There are several reasons why tests become unstable, most of which you can turn around by following these best practices and guidelines.

How to Effectively Analyze Test Automation Results

If you have introduced test automation as a means to achieve more efficient testing, you’re probably also interested in making the test result analysis process as efficient as possible. This requires the right approach and the right set of tools.
