In this series of blog, will show how to use best practice bot, prebuilt bot provided from SAP, mong This time, I will show how to use “Automated Upload of Manual

Entries” at finance domain.

In recent years, the use cases of RPA have increased considerably, so many of you may know, but I will once again quote the wiki definition about RPA.

Robotic process automation
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robotic_process_automation
“In traditional workflow automation tools, a software developer produces a list of actions to automate a task and interface to the back-end system using internal application programming interfaces (APIs) or dedicated scripting language. In contrast, RPA systems develop the action list by watching the user perform that task in the application’s graphical user interface (GUI), and then perform the automation by repeating those tasks directly in the GUI. This can lower the barrier to use of automation in products that might not otherwise feature APIs for this purpose.”

To put it plainly, the RAP bot will learn and act on behalf of the user’s current repetitive input operations into the software. This allows many employees to spend less time on simple, non-valued repetitive tasks and more time on more thoughtful work.

SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation that is SAP’s RPA accelerates digital transformation of business processes by automatically replicating tedious actions that have no added value.
