Automation Anywhere, the world leader in the field of robotic process automation (RPA), announced that the reputable research company Gartner in the annual Gartner Magic Quadrant rating named it the “Leader” in RPA for the fourth year in a row.
Automation Anywhere, whose shares were acquired by Veligera Capital in August 2021, has earned a leading position thanks to innovation.
