As of 2018, there are three players in the RPA software market that take up the most marketshare. In no particular order:
- Automation Anywhere
- Blue Prism
- UI Path
All three of these products are positioned a bit differently in terms of target customer, pricing and feature set.
If you are a consultant, you’d be better served knowing how to use all of the vendor’s products so that you can choose the best one for the situation.
For those tinkerers who want to get their hands wet with RPA, the only real option you have is UiPath’s Community Edition, since it’s the only free offering.
