LOBSTER LISTED FOR THE THIRD TIME IN 2021.
LOBSTER CONSIDERED A MAJOR PLAYER IN DIGITAL PROCESS AUTOMATION.
Lobster has been included in Now Tech: Digital Process Automation, Q4 2021, Forrester’s overview of digital process automation providers. This is the third time this year that Lobster has been named, having already been mentioned in Q1 with low-code development and in Q2 regarding its integration platforms. Only 43 providers were detailed, depending on their market presence and capabilities, and Lobster’s inclusion highlights its leading efforts in these three important technological areas.
The American analyst Forrester is one of the preeminent research and advisory firms working with business and technology leaders in a range of industries. The company provides analysis in technology areas, including IT, telecommunications, computing, software, and networking. They have dedicated their most recent report to the future challenge of digital process automation (DPA).
THE NEED TO IMPROVE DIGITAL PROCESS INTEGRATION.
The report acknowledges that organisations face an automation imperative. Forrester defines DPA as:
Platforms for application development that combine low-code programming for general-use application development with support for modelling and orchestrating basic to complex processes, along with robust, dynamic case management.
These platforms easily incorporate many of the categories that were formerly defined as business process management and dynamic case management – integrated with the capabilities of low-code development. These platforms can:
- Provide a platform for general-use low-code development: In a previous report (Q2 2021 Global Digital Process Automation Survey), 76% of respondents confirmed that they were moving towards end-to-end automation for business processes. This will compel a new approach that is both faster and embraces new business developers, like low-code. New DPA platforms will need to offer general low-code capabilities in order to succeed.
- Address all process and case management requirements: These require comprehensive modelling, management capabilities, orchestration, and the skill to manage heterogeneous technologies.
Drive faster development cycles: The speed and scale of automation has increased rapidly in the last few years, along with the need for companies to quickly adapt to new circumstances. This is particularly true recently regarding COVID-19, which has accelerated the need for remote working. Only businesses with a robust DPA structure can adapt to the rapidly changing situation allowing them to react in an effective manner to the challenges of the future.
LOBSTER IS A PRIME CHOICE FOR DPA.
In this regard, Lobster is listed as a major player in the EMEA area, with a small, but growing presence in North America and the APAC area. The report details Lobster’s vertical market focus in manufacturing, retail, transportation, and logistics. Some of the company’s customers include the chocolate manufacturer Lindt and Sprüngli, Lufthansa Cargo and the Schaeffler Group.
Therefore, Lobster is a prime choice to support the evolution towards full DPA, with the experience and solutions to help organisations automate their business processes, offering services, technical support, training and certification. This allows companies to become more client-focussed and responsive to their own customers’ needs, knowing that everything is in safe hands.
