The global crisis has changed corporate strategies, interests and operations. Likewise, Industry Leaders have begun pivoting towards adopting technologies that revolutionize enterprises and their business processes. In other words, visionary entrepreneurs have already started using time and resource-efficient technologies like RPA for SAP ERP to automate specific use cases that are cumbersome, repetitive and highly error prone but critical.

Automating such repetitive specific use cases can lead your business to:
  • Achieve Process Excellence

As a consequence, more and more businesses are turning towards automation and implementing technologies such as RPA for SAP to improve business efficiency.

SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation (SAP IRPA) is implemented on SAP’s Business Technology Platform layer in your SAP S/4HANA ERP Solution.

Evidently, you can now take your business to the next level by implementing SAP IRPA with your existing ERP Solutions like SAP S/4HANA and improve your business performance.

Firstly, before going into the details of SAP IRPA, we must understand the technology platform that powers it – SAP BTP.

What is SAP Business Technology Platform? How is it related to RPA for SAP?

SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP) is the fundamental business layer in SAP S/4HANA ERP Solution that powers your business with:
  • Seamless Integrations

  • Application development & integration
  • Intelligent Technologies
As we can see, SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation is actually powered by the SAP Business Technology Platform. Moreover, you can now easily leverage the power of Intelligent Robotic Process Automation to automate specific business use cases. Subsequently, RPA powered Digital Workforce (software bots) has a far reaching impact on the accuracy, efficiency and cost-optimization for your business, in the long term.

What is SAP IRPA?

SAP IRPA stands for SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation. Intelligent RPA is Robotic Process Automation supported by Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning, which is the next-generation of RPA.

Consequently, the SAP IRPA powered bots serve as an integrated offering which include futureproof & cognitive RPA. In fact, these low code/no code bots enable business users, citizen developers and expert developers to create software bots easily for specific business use cases.
