- March 17, 2023
Hyper Automation is the next evolution for because it combines the power of traditional Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) with automation technologies such as Robotic Process Automation (RPA), Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Machine Learning (ML) to automate and streamline complex business processes.
Hyper Automation involves the integration of these technologies to create end-to-end automation solutions that can significantly reduce the time and resources required to perform complex business processes.
In Hyper Automation, software robots or bots are used to automate repetitive, manual tasks that were previously performed by humans, such as data entry, data validation, and data processing. These bots can be programmed to mimic human actions and decision-making processes, which enables them to perform complex tasks with high accuracy and speed.
AI and ML can be used to add intelligence and decision-making capabilities to these bots, allowing them to make autonomous decisions based on data analysis, and to learn and improve over time.
It can be applied to a wide range of business processes, including finance, HR, supply chain management, customer service, and IT operations.
What is integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS)?
Advantages of Hyper Automation
Hyper Automation offers several advantages to organizations, including:
Hyper Automation Using iPaaS
Here is a step-by-step guide for using iPaaS to allow Hyper Automation:
- Identify the workflows and processes that can be automated. This involves laborious, monotonous tasks or procedures that entail integrating several systems and applications.
- Select the ideal iPaaS solution for your business. There are number of iPaaS platforms available, each with unique features and functionalities. When choosing a platform, consider elements like integration potential, security, scalability, and cost.
- Configure the iPaaS platform and create connectivity with the applications and systems you want to integrate. The iPaaS platform’s pre-built connectors or setting up API (Application Programming Interface) connections are examples of this.
- Identify the processes and workflows to be automated and define the integration flows. Data mappings, triggers, and actions definition, as well as error handling and alerting systems, are all included in this.
- Keep track of and improve automated workflows. This entails evaluating how well the integrations are working, finding potential areas for improvement, and making any necessary improvements.
These methods can help firms adopt iPaaS and generate business value by streamlining operations and improving efficiency and accuracy.
Disadvantages of Hyper Automation
Hyper Automation requires an initial investment in technology, infrastructure, and training. Organizations must be willing to invest in the necessary resources to implement a hyper Automation strategy, which can be a significant upfront cost.
Resistance to Change
Dependence on Technology
Hyper Automation involves a significant reliance on technology, and organizations must ensure that they have adequate contingency plans in place in case of technical issues or system failures.
Overall, while it offers many benefits, it is important for organizations to consider the potential disadvantages and take steps to address these challenges. By doing so, organizations can fully realize the benefits while mitigating the risks.
