UiPath also received the highest possible score in the criteria of architecture, execution on enterprise RPA strategy, partnership ecosystem, product road map and differentiation, and enterprise customers.

The platform easily handles attended robots, developed by employees, as well as unattended robots, that can handle large scale processing… UiPath is one of the stronger RPA platforms, geared for independent-minded partners and customers.”
The Wave examined the rapidly maturing RPA market, which is moving so fast that features that stood out in the 2017 Forrester Wave™ are now expected. To assess and recognize the vendors driving the advancement of RPA, this year’s evaluation highlights deployment efficiency, scale, training breadth, new ways to look at governance, and advancing analytics. Participant evaluations were based on a comprehensive set of 30 evaluation criteria, grouped into three categories: Current Offering, Strategy, and Market Presence. As part of Forrester’s rigorous review process, the firm also analyzed vendor surveys, conducted customer reference surveys, participated in product demos, and examined expert interviews.
