UiPath brings Robotics Process Automation to SAP Applications

Monday 13th May, 2019

Robotics Process Automation (RPA) company UiPath is enabling businesses that use SAP solutions to accelerate their digital transformation, automate critical business operations, and ease migrations to SAP S/4HANA.

Peter Villeroy, Global SAP Practice Director at UiPath, said: We see customers able to drive stronger ROI for their SAP investments with our RPA platform by simplifying the connection between SAP and non-SAP applications easily and with fast time to value; our software robots are able to move across applications seamlessly. Businesses are deploying RPA to automate mundane back office processes in finance, supply chain and HR and moving people to more value-added functions.

UiPath not only supports automation across all SAP Business Suite applications, SAP S/4HANA, SAP® SuccessFactors, SAP Ariba, SAP Concur and others, but integrates to other vendor applications and custom applications to accelerate end-to-end processes through UI automation and eliminating manual tasks. And as businesses make the transition to SAP S4/HANA, UiPath’s RPA platform eases the migration process by automating important steps.

UiPath solves challenges with AI skills such as Computer Vision that enable human-like recognition of user interfaces, using a mix of AI, optical character recognition (OCR), text fuzzy-matching, and an anchoring system to tie it all together. This allows UiPath’s robots to “see” the screen and visually identify all the elements, rather than relying on their hidden properties, IDs, and other metadata.

UiPath showcased these solutions at the SAPPHIRE NOW and ASUG Annual Conference on 7th-9th May in Florida.
