SAN JOSE, CA -- Automation Anywhere, the global leader in enterprise robotic process automation (RPA), announced they have been named a "Leader" in the February 2017 report, "The Forrester Wave™: Robotic Process Automation, Q1 2017" by Forrester Research, Inc.

Forrester counts 38 RPA product vendors, but there are even more -- over 50 and counting -- professional service firms that deliver RPA. Among these, Automation Anywhere was the only vendor evaluated on more than one product offering and named as a leader in RPA.

The company "has the largest trained ecosystem, approaching 10,000 certified RPA implementers globally with over 150 in R&D and is the largest RPA provider from a revenue standpoint." The report also stated that Automation Anywhere "is often selected for overall ease, duration, and cost of deployment."
