No code RPA (also called low code RPA when a limited amount of coding is required) is an emerging technology but there are already strong companies with commercial space emerging in this space. We see 2 major types of vendors in the space:
- 1st generation RPA companies expanding their offering with low/no code solutions
- 2nd generation RPA companies offering only no code solutions
1st generation RPA companies
While one of the largest RPA companies like Automation Anywhere still does not have a UX programming option, Unicorns like UiPath and BluePrism have been touting the effectiveness of their UX platforms since the last couple years. Though their UX has been growing in capability, we hear from implementation partners that most solutions are too complex to be built solely using the UX. Consultants inevitably end up relying on code to program the complex parts of RPA software.
