According to Gartner, “Hyperautomation will enable both services and asset-intensive enterprises to gain 20% to 30%, or more, in operational efficiencies over the next 10 years.” Undoubtedly, automation is inevitable, yet many automation projects fail, primarily due to resistance by workers and middle management. Be it a possibility of displacing workers in specific locations and tasks in operational processes or poor communication with workers for automation initiatives, hyperautomation efforts are often understated.
Executive leaders guiding digital transformation should get this Gartner report to:
- Propose a long-range automation plan that makes provisions for personnel.
- Consider automation from various stakeholders' perspectives.
- Improve the factors that affect technology acceptance.
- Develop a potential life cycle for jobs in the path of hyperautomation.

How Gartner Defines Hyperautomation?
Hyperautomation is the use of digital technologies to automate activities to achieve a step-change improvement in business performance.
"Enterprise architecture and technology innovation leaders lack a defined strategy to scale automation with tactical and strategic goals. They must deliver end-to-end automation beyond RPA by combining complementary technologies to augment business processes. Gartner calls this 'hyperautomation'."
(**Source: Gartner, Move Beyond RPA to Deliver Hyperautomation, Saikat Ray, Cathy Tornbohm, Marc Kerremans, Derek Miers, December 16, 2019.)
The term “hyperautomation” was coined by Gartner as one of the year’s top 10 strategic technology trends. Hyperautomation, a more disciplined approach towards business results, allows you to combine complementary technologies such as Robotic Process Automation, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Business Process Management (BPM), process mining, and other types of decision and task automation tools to automate more processes end-to-end. With Hyperautomation, you can automate more and more tasks at higher speed and often at scale, achieving even more value that has a lasting impact on the overall business
