Microsoft named a Leader in the 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Robotic Process Automation

Microsoft Power Automate is striving to provide customers with a single intelligent automation service for coders and non-coders alike. We have rapidly added capabilities and features based on customer requests and the evaluation of the market.

A pivotal moment for Power Automate was the launch of Robotic Process Automation (RPA) at Ignite in 2019. We believe, this led to Power Automate landing as a ‘Visionary’ in Gartner Magic Quadrant for RPA in 2020, which was an incredible start for our entry into the RPA market.

We have continued to make significant investments in RPA capabilities with the acquisition of Softomotive in 2020, which resulted in the general availability of Power Automate Desktop. This evolution continued as we added the powerful process advisor capability, and offered Power Automate Desktop for Windows 10 at no additional cost.

Today, we are pleased to announce that these investments have led to an important milestone; Microsoft has been named a Leader in the 2021 Gartner Robotic Process Automation (RPA) Magic Quadrant. Gartner recognized several of Power Automate’s strengths.
