[Updated Feb, 2020]
If you’re wanting to read about the different RPA products and where they stand, you can take a look at various RPA market research reports.
There’s four big marketing research reports that are commonly cited in the industry by RPA vendors for sales and marketing reasons:
- Forrester Research
- Everest Group
- Horses for Sources
You’d normally have to pay to see these reports, but ABU (Automation Anywhere, Blue Prism, UiPath) have special agreements to distribute the reports in exchange for your contact information. Basically, if ABU typically rank somewhere in the top 3 places of all of these market reports, and use them as sales tools in exchange for your information.
I’ll try to keep these links up to date as new reports are released.
- Forrester Q4 2019 (https://www.uipath.com/company/rpa-analyst-reports/forrester-wave-rpa) – there is some controversy over this as apparently there is some family relationship between a UiPath exec and Forrester research staff.
- Everest Group July 2019 (https://www.automationanywhere.com/lp/everest-group-peak or here)
- Gartner May 2019 (https://www.uipath.com/company/rpa-analyst-reports/gartner-magic-quadrant-robotic-process-automation or here)
