Microsoft flow is now evolving and keep on expanding it’s scope. Initially it was ‘Microsoft flow’ with Automated Flow, Business process flow(BPF), Instant Flow… then it added UI Flow into the box ‘with selenium IDE’ .
Later in Ignite microsoft announced ‘Microsoft flow’ is coming up with RPA capability and name changed to Power Automate
After some days… got the news Microsoft took over Softomotive Ltd Which is the Niche player as per Gartner’s Magic Quadrant May 2019 report and Microsoft was not in the race of RPA products.
Anyways after this acquisition Softomotive‘s product WinAutomation is in the bucket of ‘Power Automate’ which added feather 🪶 to it which is already established name in RPA market and Microsoft gushed in to Gartner’s Magic quadrant June 2020 report as Visionaries.
Now Microsoft released new member Desktop flows with Process Advisor which are in preview. Already AI Builder entered in to The bucket of Power Automate. What’s next 🤔
Microsoft is addressing all %Process% automation 😀 like Robotic Process Automation, Digital Process Automation, Intelligent Process Automation, Business Process Management etc..
Just thought to check the trend analysis of Power Automate along with leading RPA products and result is amazing 🤩 graph is increasing for Power Automate from last one year worldwide. Attached the snapshot for easy reference and anybody can analyse from their end as well.. 😊
