Top 10 Robotic Process Automation Trends to Dominate the Industry in 2023

These robotic process automation trends will continue to gain prominence in 2023 and beyond

Robotic process automation has been one of the fastest-growing phenomena in the tech industry. It involves automating software that imitates human interactions with digital systems, in order to automate processes and deployment pipeline efficiency. Basically, the pandemic was a major trigger that enhanced the adoption of robotic process automation trends and applications. By leveraging the abilities of an RPA application, businesses can improve process quality, speed, and productivity. This has become more of a reality because companies have shifted their focus to automating repetitive processes such as handling data entry, customer queries, customer ID verification, and others. The top robotic process automation trends for 2023 will empower the industry to advance growth and development. The global robotic process automation market has come a long way and its development is here to stay. Most businesses are trying to leverage this opportunity to increase human worker productivity and reduce error rates. Here are the top 10 robotic process automation trends that will dominate the industry in 2023.

Robotic process automation will divert to low-cost RPA and hyper-automation systems

The core RPA technology system has become a commodity as many low-cost RPA vendors have jumped into the RPA bandwagon. This phenomenon has created pricing pressures for vendors. Hence, several world-class RPA vendors have begun packaging complementary hyperautomation technologies such as AI, process mining, workflow, and such others.

Increased adoption of managed RPA

Historically, RPA's technical complexity has been a barrier to adoption. Several RPA service providers have begun to offer managed RPA services at a low cost to alleviate this. In the year 2022, the market witnessed enhanced adoption of managed RPA, and the trend is about to continue for 2023.

Rising numbers of RPA CoE

Basically, an RPA Centre of Excellence is a centralized group that is responsible for implementing RPA processes in a business. The RPA CoE comprises IT experts, RPA consultants, process managers, and functional experts, who represent various global tech teams. Experts believe that 2023 will witness the establishment of various RPA CoEs to improve the efficiency of the bot development cycle and integrate RPA with IT.

Semantic Automation

Semantic automation basically demonstrates a diverted course from a rules-based approach where robots learn simply by observing an activity or task and emulating it without detailed instructions. By deploying semantic automation, bots can easily understand processes and the data that is required to move the pieces required to complete the workflow.

Adoption of RP among SME adopters

As mentioned before, small and medium-sized enterprises realized the importance of robotic process automation as soon as the pandemic hit to stay competitive and resilient. Based on reports, most global companies have embarked on the path of adoption of RPA applications and intelligent automation. In the coming years, SMEs are definitely going to adopt more RPA software and applications to streamline their processes and become more efficient.

RPAaaS will become mainstream

 Banking on the popularity of RPA, RPAaaS is bound to take over the industry in 2023. As soon as SaaS was introduced into the industry, organizations took it upon themselves to innovate cutting-edge solutions and services. Automation will continue to cement its position as a crucial component for business growth and development.

More RPA-driven MSPs

Due to rising RPA deployment costs and the extended time for the solution to roll out, businesses are turning to managed service providers which offer RPA as a service to outsource their automation tasks. MSPs can provide businesses with automation possibilities without requiring any RPA infrastructure or training, and at reduced prices in the short term.

Intelligent Systems

RPA will be more integrated with AI and machine learning techniques by 2023. The line between bots and digital workers will become clearer. RPA bots will focus on tasks that are based on logged procedures with rules. Meanwhile, AI that mimics human behavior will aid in the completion of increasingly difficult jobs. This will also aid in connecting automation islands and achieving more seamless process automation and departmental interconnection. RPA's increasing cognitive AI app development will help prevent bottlenecks.

More Automation-Related Acquisitions

Consolidations and acquisitions in automation and RPA have risen considerably in 2022 and will continue to rise over the next few years. Automation providers will combine their foundations to handle all parts of the robotization value chain's usefulness, rather than focusing just on providing the greatest standalone capabilities. 

RPA will takeover Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)

Bringing ERP and legacy systems upto speed is one of the biggest challenges that organizations face nowadays. But RPA can be leveraged for ERP purposes in various ways. Industry analysts say that integrating RPA in ERP applications will definitely experience a dramatic shift where AI and automation will play an important role in 2023 and beyond.
