London, 12th December 2018: Thoughtonomy, the leading Intelligent Automation platform provider, has been named by Ovum as a market leader in Robotic Process Automation (RPA) platforms market. Thoughtonomy was featured in Ovum’s comprehensive RPA platform and vendor evaluation, Ovum Decision Matrix: Selecting an Robotic Process Automation (RPA) platform, 2018–19. . The Ovum Decision Matrix states that Thoughtonomy, as a market leader, ‘has established a commanding market position with its RPA platform demonstrating a high level of maturity, cohesiveness, innovation and enterprise fit, and the capability to effectively meet the requirements of a wider range of use cases.’

“As the first vendor to offer an RPA cloud product and then substantial AI enhancements, Thoughtonomy has developed a sound architectural and product foundation” said Saurabh Sharma, Principal Analyst at Ovum. The report also highlights Thoughtonomy’s appeal to organisations of all sizes: ‘In addition to large enterprises, medium-sized enterprises interested in a low-cost entry to RPA and pursuing a “start small and grow big” approach, should consider Thoughtonomy.’

At a broader level, the report highlights the growing potential for automation to drive efficiencies and improve productivity within organizations across the world. It also predicts that the RPA market will continue to evolve rapidly over the next few years, as core RPA technology combines with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning capabilities.

Terry Walby, CEO & Founder of Thoughtonomy, which is headquartered in London, UK, said: “This caps an incredible year for Thoughtonomy, and we’re delighted to get this recognition from one of the world’s most respected industry analysts. We’re already proving the enormous benefits that our solutions can deliver to organizations across all sectors, not just in terms of more efficient processes and reduced costs, but also in providing a digital labor pool which can be used as a strategic asset to enter new markets, develop new products, and pursue commercial initiatives which simply wouldn’t be feasible using a traditional resourcing model. We’re looking forward to continuing this exciting journey with clients, old and new, in 2019.”

Thoughtonomy has delivered year on year growth of over 300% over the past three years, and is now operating in 29 countries.
