What is Hyperautomation and Why Your QA Team Needs It
Hyperautomation, also referred to as intelligent process automation, is a set of powerful digital technologies like machine learning (ML), artificial intelligence (AI) and robotic process automation (RPA), designed to automate tasks that were earlier carried out manually.
Gartner defines hyperautomation as "the combination of multiple machine learning, packaged software and automation tools to deliver work" that "deals with the application of advanced technologies including AI and machine learning to increasingly automate processes and augment humans."
So, we see that hyperautomation is not meant to entirely replace humans. Rather, it is designed to help humans free themselves from the monotonous, repetitive tasks and focus on tasks that are of a greater value to the organization. In other words, hyperautomation is nothing but the next level of automation achieved through AI capabilities added to the automation technologies we have been using so far. This makes hyperautomation the future of test automation tools and platforms like QARA Enterprise. Interestingly enough, a new age test automation tool like QARA Enterprise is powered by AI technology for accelerated test automation. The concept of hyperautomation will be all about taking this to the next level.
Key Advantages of Hyperautomation
Now that we have an idea about the concept of hyperautomation, let us have a look at the key benefits that this new technology has in store for QA teams.
1] Next Level of Automation
Hyperautomation is not meant to entirely replace manual testing. Rather, through automation, humans are freed from repetitive and low-value tasks, which allows them to focus on tasks that are of a higher value to the team and the organization.
2] Introduction of an Element of Intelligence to Automation
Be it repetitive processes or those that involve expertise and strategic thinking, hyperautomation adds a greater extent of intelligence to automation, enabling QA teams to automate a large number of processes and minimize manual effort.
3] Increased productivity of your QA Team
Empowering your team with a more extensive strategy involving cutting-edge technology and bringing in a greater degree of automation, enables them to achieve more in less time. Hyperautomation eliminates bottlenecks at the different stages of the process of automation, optimizes the process, and automates the time-consuming tasks, ensuring higher levels of productivity.
4] Boost in ROI with Advanced Analytics
With the implementation of hyperautomation, it’s possible to deliver good ROI. With the help of AI, businesses can tap into the immense potential of data from different sources which enables enterprises to gain a better understanding of performance. With the use of advanced analytics, enterprises can measure the performance based on automated processes and save a lot of money in the process.
5] Increased Agility of Your Business
Business agility is a term that denotes the feasibility for your business to grow and evolve as per the changing needs of the market. With hyperautomation, you can implement limitless scalability, which is a great advantage. Whether layered together or functioning in tandem, intelligent automation tools make it an easy process for businesses to identify new opportunities and evolve as required.
Hyperautomation is much more than just a bot that executes a series of steps in a task. Rather, it is the future of automation that will enable businesses to reach greater heights when it comes to improving business processes and enhancing ROI, in addition to enhanced productivity. It is the technology that the enterprises need today in order to ensure their automation strategy does not go obsolete with the changing demands of the market. In other words, it is the technology that makes businesses future ready.
