Uniphore Recognized in Eight 2022 Gartner® Hype Cycle™ Reports

3 min read

This year, Uniphore is proud to have been recognized in eight Gartner Hype Cycle reports focused on the critical AI, analytics and customer service technologies that are driving rapid innovation across enterprise organizations worldwide.

Gartner Hype Cycles provide a graphic representation of the maturity and adoption of technologies and applications, and how they are potentially relevant to solving real business problems and exploiting new opportunities. Gartner Hype Cycle methodology gives organizations a view of how a technology or application will evolve over time, providing a sound source of insight to manage its deployment within the context of specific business goals.

As a result, businesses leverage these tools when mapping out their technology strategies and forecasting their future needs and investment areas. According to Gartner, “CIOs and IT leaders can use Hype Cycles and associated Priority Matrices to strategize roadmaps for investing in the right innovations at the right time.” ⁹

In these reports, Uniphore is recognized as a Sample Vendor for:

Emotion AI:

Gartner notes, “Emotion AI is considered transformational as it turns human behavioral attributes into data that will have a large impact on human-machine interface (HMI)…Applying deep learning to computer vision or audio-based systems to analyze emotions in real time has spawned new use cases for customer experience enhancements, employee wellness and many other areas.” ¹

Speech Analytics:

Gartner notes, “Rapid advancements in speech-to-text technologies and natural language technology in recent years, including the use of AI techniques such as machine learning, have improved categorization and analysis accuracy. This is enabling organizations to be more accurate and confident when using the insights surfaced from analyzing voice conversations for compliance, training, analytics and collaboration initiatives.” ²

Virtual Employee Assistants (VEA) for Customer Service:

Gartner notes, “A virtual employee assistant (VEA) for customer service has the potential to significantly impact employee performance and engagement, while simultaneously elevating operational performance and the customer experience (CX).”³

The team at Uniphore believes that the inclusion of Uniphore in these categories represents the strength and market impact of Uniphore’s flagship X platform, which provides conversational AI and automation and analyzes intent, sentiment, emotion and tone during every enterprise conversation.
