Emerging Duo-Platform Strategy In RPA Migration

Many businesses have started their automation journey with Gen1 RPA. However, Gen2 RPA emerges as an innovative solution to remedy and counteract issues of Gen1. This facilitates organizations to migrate their automation initiatives to another platform. According to a survey, 74% of businesses are considering or in the process of migrating their RPA estates to a new platform in 2023. 

However, in case some businesses do not want to change, the solution is to adopt additional RPA platforms for more advanced capabilities and features. A study by Gartner found that 40% of RPA buyers will adopt a multi-vendor strategy by 2024.

Why are businesses opting for duo RPA platforms?

Lock-in mitigation

Being reliant on a single platform can restrict a business’s ability to scale, leading to long backlogs of work that cause unwanted compliance risks. This is especially important for businesses looking to promote flexibility and scalability effortlessly. Therefore, many businesses looking to add a second RPA platform to reduce the risk of being at the mercy of a single vendor.

As the RPA market continues to thrive, several talents increase by necessity. According to Gartner, 60 notable vendors are currently available in the RPA market.

Different businesses have their own preferences, and they might want to choose RPA platforms that meet their varying requirements. Besides, some enterprises do not want to replace their existing automation solutions, so they adopt an additional vendor and the RPA platform that is compatible with their legacy system for greater interoperability, flexibility, and scalability.


Specialization is a significant reason several companies utilize multiple RPA platforms. It refers to the specific processes being automated. For example, an organization might want to invest in different RPA tools that are tailored to IT, HR, back offices, and front office processes.

Different RPA platforms have different capabilities and are well-suited to specific processes. Besides, some vendors focus on niche use cases, developing and providing their own RPA capabilities precisely for specific processes. Therefore, allowing a duo-platform strategy can allow businesses to tailor their automation initiatives and select the RPA tool that best fits their needs.

As the RPA market is evolving rapidly with many emerging talents, organizations are still testing multiple platforms. Also, as each RPA tool has different capabilities, strengths, weaknesses, and complexities, businesses are trying to select the best-of-breed solution for their automation. 

There are many factors to consider, including which is the most efficient in terms of implementation, ROI, and features, which is most cost-effective in terms of pricing, resources,…, and which provides the best support teams, etc.

In the process of sampling vendors, businesses may find the perfect match and migrate their current RPA tools into one RPA platform to consolidate disparate digital workforces.
