This week, Gartner released its 2022 Magic Quadrant for RPA. Let’s take a look at what has changed from the 2021 report.

LEADERS
UiPath was recognized as the absolute Leader, both in Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision. Last year, Automation Anywhere was better in the second metric. Blue Prism, which is now SS&C Blue Prism, and Microsoft came much closer to Automation Anywhere, which means its position in the RPA market is no longer as confident as it was last year. Finally, NICE became the fifth Leader, moving to this group from Challengers.

VISIONARIES
The Group has two new companies: SAP moving from Niche Players and Salesforce (Mulesoft), which made its debut in 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant for RPA. To be precise, Salesforce has entered the Quadrant this year thanks to last year’s acquisition of Servicetrace, a Visionary in 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for RPA. Workfusion has left the group to become the only Challenger in 2022.

CHALLENGERS
The challenger’s section of this year’s report is the least crowded, only containing Workfusion, as we mentioned above. In addition, EdgeVerve Systems, a Challenger in 2021, dropped out of the 2022 Magic Quadrant for RPA at all.

NICHE PLAYERS
The most significant changes in this block are the following:

  • Two players, Nintex and Kryon, have merged into one due to this year’s deal.
  • Cyclone Robotics made a leap in its Ability to Execute, thus moving from the bottom of the block to the top.
  • SAP left the group to become a Visionary, as we mentioned above.
  • Finally, NTT dropped out of the 2022 Magic Quadrant for RPA at all.
