Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and Business Process Management (BPM) complement one another as drivers of digital transformation. RPA has gained more exposure in recent years, but BPM is an essential discipline and a key element in expanding business automation and scaling RPA programs.

Companies move towards automating more complex, decision-based tasks and end-to-end processes using various technologies, tools, and platforms. Gartner calls this Hyperautomation; Forrester calls it Automation Fabric. In this context, BPM has become a hot topic; it manages end-to-end processes, structures and business data and orchestrates how people and technologies work together.

Furthermore, BPM tools have taken significant steps in recent years and are attractive to organizations of all sizes, not just the largest corporations.

RPA and BPM are different in many ways, but most significantly, RPA automates a specific set of rule-based tasks while BPM, focuses on workflows and determines what tasks to automate and the steps needed to eliminate and consolidate those tasks.

Rewatch this webinar with Micha Kiener, CTO of Flowable and Karli Kalpala, Head of Business Services and Design of Digital Workforce, where they talk about comparing and combining RPA and BPM for the best business benefits.
