Irvine, CA, September 6, 2017 – Kofax®, a leading provider of software to simplify and transform the First Mile™ of business, announced that it has been named a “Hot Vendor in Robotic Process Automation, 2017”1 for its Kofax Kapow™ by IT market research and advisory firm Aragon Research in a report published today.
Kofax Kapow is a proven robotic process automation (RPA) solution that enables customers to leverage software robots to automate a wide range of repetitive tasks within a system by simply mimicking human action. Kofax Kapow robots are smart in that they interact with applications, trigger responses, and communicate across virtually any enterprise system (e.g., SAP or Oracle Financials), web sites, or desktop applications (e.g., Excel). Kapow robots can be implemented without complex coding or lengthy development cycles, which dramatically expedites project deployments and speeds ROI. Instead of requiring a costly virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) like other RPA vendors, Kapow minimizes its VDI footprint by providing a centralized server model that allows web and mainframe robots to execute without ever connecting to a virtual desktop. In the case of enterprise applications like SAP, Kapow robots execute on the server and communicate bi-directionally with the application on a virtual desktop via an automation service.
The Aragon Hot Vendors in Robotic Process Automation report describes RPA as a new and evolving market with great potential to foster organizational efficiencies and advance digital transformation initiatives. The report highlights providers with interesting, cutting-edge products, services or technology, and recognizes Kofax Kapow for both its standalone capabilities and its integration with Kofax Capture™ and the Kofax TotalAgility® unified digital transformation platform.
According to the report, “Kofax's secret sauce is the fact that all robots run on the server, along with the ability to combine refined and automated bots with an architected and integrated Digital Business Platform. The result is an RPA solution that exceeds simple bot deployment and management, and demonstrates a clear connection to a platform that offers broader functionality.”1
