Intelligent Process Automation (IPA) is one of the most potent digital levers enabling digital transformation for organizations globally. Enterprises are facing unprecedented pressure to reduce costs, optimize operations, and increase business resilience due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. Multiple digital elements are disrupting the status quo. Both on the demand and supply side, digital technologies, particularly automation, are becoming ubiquitous. Enterprises are expecting not only cost reduction, but also next-generation benefits from their relationships; and solutions providers have recognized the need to pivot quickly to a digital-powered model to provide those benefits to their buyers. To achieve success, it is critical to select the right IPA solution provider.

In this report, we study 27 IPA solution providers and position them on Everest Group’s PEAK Matrix®, categorizing them into Leaders, Major Contenders, and Aspirants based on their capabilities and offerings.
