The 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant has named Microsoft Power Automate a Leader for Robotic Process Automation (RPA) thanks to its several robust capabilities. It is worth mentioning that this is not the first time Microsoft Power Automate excels at providing intelligent automation worthy of recognition.

Back in 2019, Power Automate RPA was launched at Ignite, leading an entry into the market starting as a Visionary in Gartner Magic Quadrant for RPA the following year.  An additional milestone for Microsoft is the acquisition of Softomotive in 2020 to keep bringing meaningful investments in RPA, increasing low-code robotic process automation capabilities.

Power Platform product includes:

  • Power BI (for analytics)
  • Process Advisor (process mining)
  • Power Apps (LCAP)
  • API connectors
  • Power Virtual Agents (chatbots)

Power Automate product includes:

  • Power Automate Desktop (PAD)
  • API integration and orchestration capabilities

The Gartner report highlights the following Microsoft’s RPA strengths:

  • Product strategy: Microsoft’s RPA with API orchestration is a significant value, allowing the user to integrate multiple systems while harnessing the Power Platform capabilities to create an end-to-end automation platform with low-code app development and analytics competencies.
  • Microsoft ecosystem: With 15.8 million deployed bots conducting over a billion actions daily, Microsoft excels at offering a large customer ecosystem with an Azure-based RPA and Power Automate integration.
  • Sales performance and operations: Microsoft keeps growing the sales ecosystem for Power Automate with over 400 partners, offers a free version of PAD and a paid premium that features every additional capability.

Therefore, Microsoft delivers a powerful unified, end-to-end platform that brings integration, low-code app development and analytics capabilities while meeting the business process automation of several companies.

According to the Gartner report, Microsoft as a Leader represents their market-leading vision while meeting customers’ needs with new products and solutions to Microsoft’s core RPA offerings.
