No, I’m not talking about the mechanical, sci-fi movie kind of Transformer, but the real-life visionary, Forrester calls this Digital Process Automation (DPA) in its report, “The Forrester Wave™: Digital Process Automation, Q3 2017.” DPA goes beyond BPM to encompass different application patterns, approaches and users. And to take advantage of DPA, companies need “process driven applications to address the deep, complex needs they have traditionally targeted, while at the same time providing a platform for large numbers of rapid, business-driven applications,” noted Rob Koplowitz, Forrester analyst, in the report.

This is difficult for a business to do on its own. Implementing a deep process requires expertise in business rules, process modeling, and dynamic case management. Implementing wide processes allows a business to innovate and capture opportunities by leveraging newer game-changing technologies, such as low- code/no-code applications, Internet of Things (IoT), customer journey mapping and Artificial Intelligence (AI).

To help companies get their arms around all this technology, Forrester recently completed its DPA report that evaluated vendors in this field on 31 dimensions. These include: how well their offering supports DPA requirements; the strength of their go-to-market strategy and thought leadership; proven customer adoption across geographies and vertical markets; and the relevancy of their offering to the types of inquires that Forrester receives.

The result of this comprehensive evaluation is that Software AG’s Digital Business Platform [was] Ranked a Leader in Digital Process Automation. The platform's deep and wide product capabilities enable IT and business users to create applications using traditional BPM and low-code in line with digital transformation goals.
