Strategy, Process Discovery/Analysis, And Citizen Dev Support Were Key Differentiators
As the scale and complexity of process automation needs increase, organizations need support from service providers. Vendors that can provide strategic consulting and process discovery and support citizen-led application development will position themselves to successfully deliver process automation to their customers.
The Forrester Wave™ evaluation highlights Leaders, Strong Performers, Contenders, and Challengers. It’s an assessment of the top vendors in the market and does not represent the entire vendor landscape.
