What is digital process automation?

Learn how OpenText helps organizations gain an information advantage with digital process automation.

Digital Process Automation (DPA) software helps organizations transform into digital, data-driven businesses through automation. It enables the automation of repetitive tasks, process orchestration across multiple systems and empowers workers to make data-driven decisions, while simultaneously providing a flexible platform for rapidly building user-centric applications.

Process automation software is used to automate processes as part of wider digital transformation initiatives. It creates opportunities to re-engineer processes around customer needs, deliver seamless customer and employee experiences and quickly adapt to changing expectations while improving efficiency and managing risk.
