How to Optimize SAP With Robotic Process Automation?

Blog: Developing digital workers quickly and cost-efficiently to handle routine tasks in SAP


Robotic process automation (RPA) has become commonplace for many organizations. RPA uses digital workers to automate dozens or even hundreds of routine workflow tasks and processes. RPA increases productivity by reducing the time it takes to accomplish repetitive backend tasks.

RPA is used in SAP-related processes to bridge the gap between departmental functions, as well as those catered to by ERP, legacy, and third-party applications. Now, RPA can be utilized in SAP environments more effectively than ever before.

Developing automations can be a long, drawn-out process. This is why we developed a new tool, Digital Workforce Automation Creator for SAP Applications that can reduce the time spent developing SAP automations by 50-90%.

Here’s an overview of the tool and a quick look at 4 ways it can help your company optimize SAP while saving time and money.


Digital Workforce Automation Creator for SAP Applications

Digital Workforce Automation Creator for SAP Applications enables companies to take an entirely new approach to SAP automation. It converts macro recordings made in the SAP environment into Blue Prism processes.

Instead of needing to develop fully-customized automations, organizations can leverage measures already taken in the SAP environment, making the development of the automation itself much more efficient and faster.

Automations are accomplished in a way that is compatible with SAP with support for development maintenance and reuse. Creating automations this way significantly reduces costs associated with development.

1. Reusability

Reusability is a key component of the way Automation Creator promotes efficiency. Software reusability optimizes automation development by saving both time and money. Digital Workforce Automation Creator for SAP Applications uses no duplicates. The number of components is reduced to a minimum. Uniform names and descriptions are based on a technical rule. All issues are reported to avoid duplicate work in resolving incidents.

2. Performance

Automations developed using Digital Workforce Automation Creator for SAP Applications involve the minimum number of stages needed, allowing for faster performance. The opening connection is improved. Automations developed by the Automation Creator are more robust than those developed by other methods. Sometimes scripting is the only way to interact. Multiple connections and sessions can be used at the same time.

3. Management

Management for Digital Workforce Automation Creator for SAP Applications is unified and simplified. Automation Creator has a centralized knowledge base. Quality is not dependent on development skills. However, due to ease of management, developers can focus on becoming SAP experts and better understanding business needs.

4. Cost Efficiency

Digital Workforce Automation Creator for SAP Applications is cost-efficient because it minimizes development time. With SAP Automation Creator, 50% to 90% of a process can be automatically generated. Additionally, any quality costs related to issues in development and process maintainability are – at a minimum – radically reduced or altogether eliminated. Minimal maintenance is needed because the SAP structure remains the same.

Meet the challenges of developing SAP automations

If SAP is your core system, and you currently use or plan to use Blue Prism RPA, the Digital Workforce SAP Automation Creator is a must-have. Developing automations for workflow tasks can be challenging and time-consuming.
