Automation has allowed organisations of all sizes and across every industry to increase efficiency, improve accuracy, and free people up from time-consuming tasks. Hyperautomation enables this to happen at warp speed.

Hyperautomation is often referred to as the next major phase of digital transformation. It represents the next phase of digital business, creating a smart working environment where people do not have to waste their time on tedious tasks, but instead enables them to make a greater impact with the freedom to focus on the more interesting side of work.

What is hyperautomation?

Hyperautomation refers to the use of advanced technologies, like artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and robotic process automation (RPA), to automate tasks and processes done by people. Hyperautomation is often referred to as the next major phase of digital transformation.

Hyperautomation isn’t limited to just the tools needed to carry out automation; it also refers to establishing protocols for every step of automation. Including process discovery, process optimisation, design, planning, development, deployment, and monitoring.

To put it simply, hyperautomation is the mix of automation technologies and artificial intelligence that, when combined, augment humans’ capabilities, allowing them to complete processes faster, more efficiently, and with fewer errors.

Why hyperautomation?

Over the past decade, organisations have prioritised digitally transforming manual tasks or processes into digital ones – digital transformation. The payoff has been accelerated process flows from which to gain a competitive advantage.  

Now that so many organisations have joined in on the digital transformation fun, the competitive advantages has weaned over time. And so, the next step is to further accelerate the rate at which processes can be executed, or just automate all of them.  

Not only does hyperautomation create a framework where business functions can operate 24/7, but it also further reduces human intervention, which can translate into significant cost savings and less error.

Hyperautomation has the capacity to streamline key processes across entire organisations, allowing businesses to run at peak operational efficiency. This means that companies that embrace hyperautomation can expect to see improvements, across the board.

Benefits of hyperautomation

One of the primary benefits of hyperautomation is increased productivity. By automating repetitive tasks, employees have more time to focus on higher-level tasks that require human expertise. In addition, hyperautomation can lead to improved accuracy, as machines are less prone to errors than humans are. This can reduce the need for manual interventions, which in turn can create cost savings. Hyperautomation can also improve customer experience by speeding up response times, reducing errors in customer-facing processes, and enabling more personalized interactions. Finally, hyperautomation can lead to better compliance as it enables the automated tracking and monitoring of regulations, making it easier to stay compliant.

Technologies that facilitate hyperautomation

Hyperautomation is made possible by various advanced technologies such as AI, ML, and RPA. AI and ML can analyze large amounts of data, identify patterns, and make predictions, making them useful for tasks such as fraud detection and predictive maintenance. RPA is used to automate repetitive tasks such as data entry, email handling, and invoice processing. In addition, process mining, which involves the analysis of event logs to discover, monitor, and improve processes, can provide valuable insights to drive hyperautomation. Finally, chatbots and virtual assistants, which use natural language processing and ML, can automate customer service processes and help customers quickly find information.

Challenges involved in hyperautomation

Despite its numerous benefits, hyperautomation is not without its challenges. One of the primary challenges is the need for significant investment in new technologies and resources. Hyperautomation requires not just new software, but also hardware, data storage, and IT infrastructure. In addition, there may be resistance from employees who fear that automation will make their jobs redundant. Another challenge is the need for a strong governance framework to ensure that hyperautomation is implemented in a compliant and secure way. Finally, hyperautomation may require significant changes to existing processes and workflows, which can be difficult to implement.

Hyperautomation is a powerful tool that can help businesses increase productivity, improve accuracy, and enhance customer experience. With the right mix of technologies and governance, hyperautomation can unlock significant benefits for businesses. However, it also comes with challenges such as significant investment, employee resistance, and changes to existing processes. It is important for businesses to carefully consider these challenges and work with their IT teams and vendors to develop a well-thought-out hyperautomation strategy.
