Forrester Report Ar Page

In order to meet customer demands, organizations are looking to expand their digital process automation (DPA) services. As a result of these increased demands, the focus of DPA has moved from concerns about cost reduction to an emphasis on digital transformation. Traditional methodologies are being refined to focus on the customer journey and to ensure a seamless, end-to-end user experience.

The Forrester WaveTM: Digital Process Automation Service Providers, Q3 2020, The 13 Providers That Matter Most and How They Stack Up

The Forrester Wave report identifies Perficient as one of “13 providers that matter most…” Says the report, “Reference clients praised the firm’s ‘proficiency in all aspects of the technology stack.'”

The Forrester report took an in-depth look at each service provider’s strengths across three categories: strategy, current offering, and market presence. According to the report, “Strategy, process discovery/analysis, and citizen dev support were key differentiators,” and DPA service provider customers should look for vendors who not only provide a large array of heterogeneous process automation tools, but who also provide supporting technologies such as process mining, modeling, and documentation, and offer services and methodologies to support best practices for the adoption and use of DPA for their clients.

Perficient’s approach to automation focuses on the intersection of process orchestration, RPA, and AI. We achieved the highest possible score in the innovation roadmap criterion, which is within the strategy category, and were listed as a “Contender,” as we’re still building our process discovery/analysis and citizen developer capabilities. The report states, “Perficient’s entire team of DPA consultants is officially certified in one or more DPA technologies, and the firm has an unusually high ratio of Lean/Six Sigma-certified consultants.”

The Forrester report stated that “Perficient brings passion and expertise on human-focused, formal change management to its engagements…” We believe this speaks to our ability to build strong client relationships: we tend to start small, build on early success, and become a trusted partner, forming long-term relationships and in-depth solutions.
