Since the Industrial Revolution over 200 years ago, automation has changed the way we work, consume and live.
In those early days it was farming machines and automatic weaving looms that were causing riots. A century on from that, Henry Ford’s assembly line was changing the world by making things run smoother, faster and more profitable.
It wasn’t until the 1980s that robotic automation took manufacturing to another level, but in today’s digital world, automation is less physical and more about flawless software integrations.
Now as we head into Web 3.0, hyperautomation is the trend everyone is talking about.
Hyperautomation is simply taking multiple technologies and having them all work together seamlessly, without the need for human input. At the moment, we have frontend and backend systems, both doing their own thing. Employees are a bridge between the two, using tools like Google Workspace and Microsoft 365 to help.
And while it’s pretty well automated compared to a decade ago, there’s still room for improvement. All these systems aren’t integrated with each other and frontend systems and backend systems often don’t even speak the same language, which is why we need a person in between to keep them connected.
Intelligent automation is the key to making all these systems work as one, and it’s coming within the next few years. Hyperautomation enables automation for virtually any repetitive task executed by business users. And due to its AI learning capability, it will even dynamically discover solutions to problems that don’t even exist yet, creating bots to automate them.
As businesses evolve into a purely digital organisation, hyperautomation is a key aspect of the next stage of the digital transformation.
Just like power looms in the Industrial Revolution, modern demands are still very much the same - make things more efficient. That’s what automation is.
Whether it’s ploughing a field or running SaaS software, the objective is always to get more done in a faster time with less effort. Business leaders are always looking for this. “In 2021, Gartner surveys found that more than 50% of CEOs and 69% of boards of directors are demanding accelerated growth and operational excellence.”
So how does an IT Manager get all this extra growth demanded by the boss? Hyperautomation.
By accelerating complex work that relies on input from people, hyperautomation decreases downtime, augments employee performance, and discovers new processes and opportunities. One of the reasons for the appeal of hyperautomation is that it is not partial to any technology or vendor - it can be applied to any business or IT process.
Basically, anything that’s repetitive can and should be automated, saving time, money and getting the end product to your customers and clients quicker.

Heading into the next decade, we expect to see hyperautomation as a developing trend in the industry, and we’re right there on the launchpad, ready to take off.
“Gartner estimates that more than 56% of organizations have an average of four or more concurrent hyperautomation initiatives underway, and leading companies have over 10. The continued growth of hyperautomation initiatives is increasing the need for high-performing fusion teams.”
If you’re not part of the trend you’ll be left behind.
