This blog provides an overview of the latest and greatest innovations highlights which are released as part of our #S4HANA #Cloud 2002 shipment for Intelligent Robotic Process Automation using SAP Best

Practices Explorer “SAP Best Practices for SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation Integration with SAP S/4HANA“.

Automation is incredibly important for our customers, and it’s a key driver of our Intelligent Enterprise vision. Robotic Process Automation as a technology allows enterprises to automate manual activities by emulating the task work that humans perform in their systems.

Intelligent bots accelerate process automation goal of new age enterprises. After capturing user activity, bots can emulate users in their interactions with software, and digitally execute some of their tasks.

With #S4HANA #Cloud 2002, we provide new innovations with Intelligent Robotic Process Automation Best Practices Content Innovation for Finance Data Management, Supply Chain and Project based services using SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation running on SAP cloud platform to automate business processes within SAP S/4HANA on premise and S/4HANA Cloud.

Out-of-the-box automation – SAP Best Practices for SAP Intelligent RPA integration with SAP S/4HANA.

We’re releasing even more advanced SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation features and content in this release that motivates enterprises to run independent ERP systems in cloud

Users can download our best practices for SAP RPA content from here – Software Center-IRPA S/4 Content.

Future direction will have Intelligent RPA Store for sharing content from SAP S/4HANA to provide Browse & Search capabilities for acquiring content without a tenant.

You can find Bots in Store and SAP Best Practice Explorer.

Let’s take a look at the intelligent enterprise, automation and a process excellence framework to help you understand how SAP can deliver automation in a way that keeps complexity down, is scalable, and valuable.

Important Components that are newly added to SAP’s Intelligent Robotic Process Automation to drive efficiency for autonomous intelligence.

Triggers & Notifiers

SAP Intelligent RPA now enable Triggers and Notifiers.  Triggers provide means of starting bot execution from outside of Intelligent RPA.  Notifiers provide means of communicating job execution status to external applications.

Business users can now start SAP Intelligent RPA bot from your application and receive notifications to your application.

Top 3 business driven innovations to automate your business processes using SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation capabilities with #S4HANA #Cloud.

  1. Digital Automation to exclude Inconsistent New-GL Open Item for Migration Cockpit.
  2. Post Goods Movement for Supply Chain Management.
  3. Digital Automation for Professional Services – Automation List of Ongoing Projects, Purchase Requisitions and Purchase Orders for Terminated Employees.

Let’s take deeper look at the First business driven innovation for Finance Data Management using SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation content with SAP S/4HANA.

Inconsistent New-GL Open Item Exclusion for Migration Cockpit (‏4JD‏)

The solution provides increased efficiency and simplifies the data migration process for the SAP S/4HANA users by reducing manual process to find millions of GL Open Items that may need to be excluded for migration cockpit.

Digital Automation using SAP Intelligent RPA provide data consistency during migration which is one of the most common and complex challenges for transformation to SAP S/4HANA System. This scope item simplifies the work of SAP S/4HANA users, who are responsible for data migration projects, and core business users, who are responsible for business decisions.

Improve user productivity where accounting data migration process is accelerated and improved by a digital assistant.

  • Speeds up the time taken to identify GL Open items for exclusion.
  • Faster processing time for transactions
  • Increase efficiency for GL Accountants and Data Migration S/4HANA Users.
  • Increase speed of transformation by utilizing Intelligent bots to extracts the GL data from the ERP system and perform data loads into SAP S/4HANA through the API.
  • Efficient method reduces input time with minimal user intervention.
  • Automation framework can be extended to multiple business scenarios.

Let’s take deeper look at the second business driven innovation for Supply Chain Management using SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation content with SAP S/4HANA Cloud.

Post Goods Movement (‏4FP‏)

With this scope item, we deliver more advanced automation features, allowing a Warehouse Clerk and Production Supervisor to manage the quantity of materials produced for each production order in different formats and consolidate the output of each order and submit the Goods Movement for multiple orders.

Intelligent bots can take smarter decisions, cut across organizational barriers by driving optimal process modelling for maximum efficiency in manufacturing processes.

Goods movement reported on at different intervals and movement type for numerous orders are updated via automated bots,  eliminating time consuming process with manual interventions.

  • Automate posting the goods movement reported on at different intervals at one time.
  • Increase speed of transformation in manufacturing processes where 3rd party manufacturing execution systems can produce an excel output to generate the list of Movement Types and bot submit movement type for numerous orders at one time.

Communication Scenario has to be set up in S/4HANA system for the Material Document Integration (SAP_COM_0108). See for more detail documentation here and SAP help documentation URL

Let’s take deeper look at the third business driven innovation for Professional Services (Commercial Projects) Project Managers using SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation content with SAP S/4HANA Cloud.

Automated Project Execution for Project Based Services (‏4J1‏)

This scope item automates tracking of open items associated to terminated employees due to organizational changes or in cases where employees or contractors leave the company.

Automation can perform this manual work to a high degree of precision and speed by generating automated list of Ongoing Projects, Purchase Requisitions and Purchase Orders for Terminated Employees to update the open projects for which they are staffed to, as well as purchase requisitions and purchase orders created for services provided.

Solution capabilities empower Project Managers and Purchaser in making better decisions with a list of projects, purchase requisitions and purchase orders for which the employee(s) whose contract has been, or will be, terminated is assigned to.

SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation content  improve the process efficiency by automation.

  • Quicker turnaround by execution of automation bot that collects a list of projects for which the terminated employees are assigned.
  • Bot compiles the report and sends it to Project Managers and the Purchaser.

Communication Scenario for Commercial Project Integration (SAP_COM_0054) has to be set up in S/4HANA system.  See for more details documentation here and SAP help documentation URL
