What hyperautomation is?

Hyperautomation is one of the top strategic technology trends identified by Gartner, as it enables organizations to adapt to changing business needs and customer expectations.

Hyperautomation is a term that refers to the use of advanced technologies, such as:

  • Artificial intelligence (AI),
  • Machine learning (ML),
  • Robotic process automation (RPA),
  • Low-code/no-code platforms (LCNC),
  • Workflow automation tools (WAT)
  • Chatbots and conversational agents

Hyperautomation is not just about automating tasks, but also about enhancing human capabilities, improving customer experience, increasing efficiency, reducing costs, and driving innovation.

How is hyperautomation different from automation?

The main difference between automation and hyperautomation is the level of sophistication and intelligence of the technology involved. Automation relies on predefined rules and logic, while hyperautomation leverages data-driven and self-learning algorithms. Automation can handle simple and structured processes, while hyperautomation can handle complex and unstructured processes. Automation can improve operational efficiency, while hyperautomation can enable business transformation and innovation.

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning

AI and ML are at the core of hyperautomation, as they enable software developers to create intelligent applications that can learn from data, adapt to changing conditions, and provide personalized solutions.

AI and ML can also help software developers automate various aspects of their work, such as code generation, testing, debugging, deployment, maintenance, and security.

Some of the benefits of using AI and ML for software development include:

  • Faster delivery of high-quality software
  • Reduced human errors and bugs
  • Enhanced user satisfaction and retention
  • Increased productivity and creativity
  • Better decision making and problem solving

Some of the challenges of using AI and ML for software development include:

  • Data quality and availability
  • Ethical and legal implications
  • Explainability and transparency
  • Trust and reliability
  • Skills gap and talent shortage

More Intelligent Automation

Intelligent automation is a term that refers to the combination of RPA with AI and ML to create more advanced and sophisticated automation solutions that can handle complex and dynamic processes.

Intelligent automation can help software developers automate tasks that require cognitive skills, such as natural language processing (NLP), computer vision (CV), speech recognition (SR), sentiment analysis (SA), etc.

Some of the benefits of using intelligent automation for software development include:

  • Enhanced customer engagement and loyalty
  • Increased competitive advantage and differentiation
  • Greater innovation and value creation
  • Higher revenue growth and profitability
  • Better customer insights and analytics

Some of the challenges of using intelligent automation for software development include:

  • Higher cost and complexity
  • Greater dependency on external vendors
  • More training and education needs
  • More ethical and social concerns
  • More technical and organizational barriers

Process Mining

Process mining is a technique that uses data from various sources, such as logs, events, transactions, etc., to discover, analyze, monitor, and improve business processes.

Process mining can help software developers understand how their software works in reality, identify bottlenecks, inefficiencies, deviations, errors, opportunities, best practices, etc.

Benefits of Process Mining for Software Development

Some of the benefits of using process mining for software development include:

  • Increased visibility and transparency
  • Improved performance and quality
  • Optimized resource utilization and allocation
  • Enhanced process standardization and compliance
  • Faster process improvement and innovation

Challenges of Process Mining for Software Development

Some of the challenges of using process mining for software development include:

  • Data collection and integration issues
  • Data privacy and security risks
  • Data analysis and interpretation skills
  • Process complexity and variability
  • Process ownership and collaboration issues


Hyperautomation is a powerful trend that will transform the way software development is done in 2023. By leveraging technologies such as AI, ML, RPA, LCNC, cloud-based solutions, etc., software developers can automate more tasks,
enhance their capabilities, improve their outcomes, and drive more value for their customers.

However, hyperautomation also comes with some challenges, such as data quality, ethical issues, trust issues, skills gap, technical barriers, etc., that need to be addressed carefully.

Therefore, software developers need to adopt a strategic approach to hyperautomation, by identifying their goals,
assessing their current state, choosing the right technologies, implementing them effectively, and monitoring them continuously.

By doing so, software developers can reap the benefits of hyperautomation, and stay ahead of the competition in 2023.
