Key Features of Build Process Automation in SAP

Let’s take a closer look at a few of the key features of Process Automation in SAP…

1) Robotic Process Automation

SAP Process Automation provides the capabilities needed to combine SAP Workflow Management and SAP Intelligent RPA solutions, allowing companies to automate manual tasks, improve user interfaces, and scale their solutions to withstand growth and change.

With intelligent RPA capabilities, users are enabled to execute tasks, such as the generation of large amounts of business documents, without the need for human intervention.

2) Workflow Management

By leveraging drag-and-drop functionality to digitize, configure, and manage workflows, create forms, and manage business rules, companies can improve the efficiency of their core business processes, all without direct involvement from IT teams.

Companies can also develop decision logic and manage business rules in flow charts and spreadsheet-like decision tables to manage data and process instances more efficiently.

3) Process Visibility Dashboards

With SAP automation tools, business users can create process visibility dashboards that provide real-time visibility into end-to-end processes across the entire SAP system.

4) Embedded Artificial Intelligence

SAP Process Automation enables users to leverage embedded artificial intelligence (AI) functionality to process business documents, provide support for business decisions, and create intelligent recommendations based on the correlation of workflow data and attributes.

5) Prebuilt Process Content

With predefined forms, bot templates, business rules, process flows, and process visibility dashboards, SAP Build Process Automation makes it easy for companies to manage cross-application scenarios and and extend functionality across their SAP applications.
