Kieron Allen hosts the AI/Hyperautomation channel leaders, Toni Witt and Ronak Mathur. The three discuss the AI/Hyperautomation Top 10 companies shortlist, which they helped establish and compile Acceleration Economy analysts. Ronak and Toni describe how the companies made it onto the shortlist, the qualities these companies share, and what qualifies them to be on the list.
00:36 — Acceleration Economy recently launched a series of Top 10 lists that focus on the most important enablers in AI/Hyperautomation, Cybersecurity, and Data Modernization. Kieron asks Toni to give viewers an idea of what the AI/Hyperautomation Top 10 shortlist is.
01:11 — The Top 10 shortlist, in a sense, is a watch list — these are companies to keep an eye on as they are continuing to innovate, suggests Toni. Acceleration Economy takes a unique approach to cover these companies, as the analysts will be sharing stories from each company and how their technologies and solutions impact customers
02:00 — What does it take to make it on the Top 10 shortlist? What qualities are the analysts looking for in the organizations? The companies featured on the shortlist come from various backgrounds, notes Ronak. At the core of hyperautomation is robotic process automation (RPA), which a few companies on the Top 10 shortlist have always focused on and remains their main strength. A key quality for making the list is for companies to focus on their strength, keep building on it, and continue to embed elements of AI and machine learning (ML) into it. Companies such as UiPath, Automation Anywhere, and Celonis are notable. Ronak adds that the Top 10 list is a great combination of companies that focus on hyperautomation, process mining, RPA, automation, and AI.
03:14 — Toni notes that all of the companies share the quality of an “incessant focus on customers.” On each company’s website, users can find case studies that identify customer success stories. Additionally, all of these companies work in different vertical industries, but all retain a specific focus on customers.
04:19 — What can readers at Acceleration Economy learn from following these companies? For companies that wish to move forward, Toni advises that business leaders look for ways to integrate these services and platforms into their own organizations. Analysts at Acceleration Economy will not only be sharing examples of customer successes in upcoming reports, analyses, and videos, but also define the “why” and the “how” of these companies — one of the overarching themes at Acceleration Economy.
05:38 — How will the analysts judge which companies stay on the shortlist and which companies go? Ronak notes that the companies that will stay are those that are continuously updating themselves based on the market’s perspective. At the end of the day, these companies have to be focused on solving customers’ problems. He notes two aspects that will keep companies on the shortlist:
- Focusing on their strengths
- Keeping communities involved and engaged
At Acceleration Economy, analysts continue to share their perspectives because analysts are members of these specific industries who are working with these technologies and offering feedback to the companies.
