Automation and artificial intelligence advisory firm Mindfields has been named a leading RPA service provider in Asia Pacific by IDC.

IDC Financial Insights named Mindfields as one of the leading service providers in the recently released IDC Perspective: Six Capabilities from Leading RPA Service Providers That Advance Financial Services Institutions toward Intelligent Automation. 

The Perspective recognises Mindfields as having the desired capabilities to offer ready propositions in intelligent automation solutions to the financial services industry in Asia/Pacific.

IDC Financial Insights indicates that institutions which choose an intelligent automation service provider based on six identified capabilities, typically achieve more favourable and long-term results from their automation deployments. 

The report maps and analyses these six capabilities for eight leading service providers including Mindfields. 

These capabilities are:

  • Ability to deliver desired business outcomes
  • Process identification and optimisation
  • Ability to deliver enterprise-wide scale
  • Security, governance, and post-deployment support as core tenets
  • Intelligence powered by AI technologies and innovative tools; and
  • Availability of talent and strong ecosystem support.

The IDC report is an important enabler for Financial Services institutions to understand the various nuances in the implementation or scaling of automation solutions.
