Our vision for Intelligent RPA relies on three pillars:

  1. Become the best integrated RPA solution for automating SAP
  2. Build a truly intelligent RPA by embedding AI in its core
  3. Make RPA stable and efficient by reducing implementation time and maintenance efforts

How do we do that?

Become the Best Integrated RPA Solution for Automating SAP

SAP Intelligent RPA integrates natively with SAP systems, together with a robust UI layer to interact with non-SAP applications such as legacy mainframe back-office, client-server Windows-based front-office, etc.

SAP Intelligent RPA is already available, with a cloud-based infrastructure including on-premise components and pre-built bots for implementing SAP S/4HANA use cases. Intelligent RPA components for the wider SAP portfolio (SAP C/4HANA, SAP Customer Experience, Concur, Ariba, Success Factors, Fieldglass…) will come later.

Build a Truly Intelligent RPA by Embedding AI in Its Core

By combining the strength of SAP machine learning (ML), artificial intelligence (AI), conversational AI (CAI), and robotic process automation (RPA), we can deliver the best out-of-the-box intelligent process automation for business, tightly integrated into the SAP Digital Core.

That is why SAP has invested into creating intelligent robotic process automation (IRPA)—the combination of RPA, machine learning, and conversational AI into one end-to-end automation stack, tightly integrated with the SAP landscape.  With Intelligent RPA, businesses will be able to achieve the high automation level necessary to become intelligent enterprises.

Make RPA Stable and Efficient

Basic RPA bots are interacting with business applications via their User Interface. Mimicking a human user working on a PC, the RPA bot interprets UI components and extracts the data it needs to execute tasks, virtually copying, pasting, clicking, etc. Is it efficient and reliable? And could it be improved?

We consider that APIs are the best way to interact with the applications. First, an API guarantees an upward compatibility when application is upgraded, which eases bot’s maintenance and improves their reliability in the long run. Second, it has lower response time and better performance. Not only does it save resources from your IT infrastructure, but it also lets your bots do more work in the same time.
