In the 2020 report, Gartner evaluated 16 vendors and has positioned Blue Prism in the Leaders quadrant based on the company’s ability to execute and completeness of vision. According to Gartner, “Leaders provide mature offerings that meet market demand and have demonstrated the vision necessary to sustain their market position as requirements evolve. The hallmark of Leaders is that they focus on, and invest in, their offerings to the point where they lead the market and can affect its overall direction.
As a result, Leaders can become the vendors to watch as you try to understand how new market offerings might evolve. Leaders typically possess a large, satisfied customer base (relative to the size of the market) and enjoy high visibility within the market. Their size and financial strength enable them to remain viable in a challenging economy. Leaders typically respond to a wide market audience by supporting broad market requirements. However, they may fail to meet the specific needs of vertical markets or other more specialized segments.”2
“We believe our leader placement is a nod to what’s at the heart of the automation revolution—the fact that all systems can be made to interoperate through digital workers,” says Jason Kingdon, Chairman and CEO of Blue Prism. “Going way beyond traditional RPA, our enterprise-grade technology frees people to create and train a digital workforce that mimics a human, scales as demand increases, and swarms to tasks according to business priority. Soon, every company will have a digital workforce to automate, streamline, and accelerate work—we’re dedicated to making the vision of a digital workforce for every enterprise a reality.”
Blue Prism is the only automation product that enables automations to be centrally shared, reused and expanded across the enterprise. As a result, customers get a centralized audit trail of every process automation, including digital worker actions and training history, which helps maintain total compliance and governance transparency. Low to no coding means business users can get the job done. The intuitive operating system within Blue Prism makes it easy for people to draw, create and deploy process automations. Blue Prism’s industry leading Robotic Operating Model (ROM®) implementation methodology is proven to help users quickly identify, build, develop, and automate enterprise-grade processes at scale. • 8/20
