Starting now, Hyland customers and partners can begin integrating Another Monday’s RPA software into Hyland products using web services and other open standards. Hyland fully expects to gain an accretive RPA revenue stream this year. Over time, RPA integration will drive deeper in
All established organizations must deal with their legacy IT, with decades of hodge-podge implementations, custom development, and little appreciation for the bigger picture. But the good news is that broken processes that became painfully obvious this year will put business transformation in play for the better. Using RPA systems to hit the organization’s head against figurative brick walls are but a symptom of the work that is ahead of us.
Whenever we discuss trends, the conversations inevitably turn to the future of artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) in process automation and robotic process automation (RPA). Frankly, I’ve found that most vendors latch on to the idea but have very little substance behind their words in terms of strategy and product roadmaps.
Increasingly, my colleague, Alan Pelz-Sharpe, and I are finding substantial convergence and common ground in our coverage areas. (Alan covers blockchain, content, compliance, and AI/ML, and I cover digital process automation, RPA, process mining, and customer experience.)

Poof–it disappeared, to be replaced by a lot of technical talk.
