UiPath offers its AI-powered business automation platform to SAP’s clients

UiPath, an enterprise automation software firm and a Premier Sponsor of SAP Sapphire & ASUG Annual Conference in Orlando, is making it easier than ever for customers to maximise their SAP® investments with the AI-powered UiPath Business Automation Platform.

By integrating with enterprise vendor applications and custom applications across SAP and non-SAP solutions, UiPath accelerates digital transformation efforts, automates critical business operations, and eases migrations to SAP S/4HANA® reducing cost, time, and effort​.

What is the market offering of the joint solution?

UiPath recently expanded its partnership with SAP to offer the UiPath Business Automation Platform to clients. This enables clients to execute business transformations, migrate critical business systems to the cloud, and augment existing business systems with the UiPath Platform and helps enterprises take advantage of a clean core with SAP S/4HANA® Cloud.

The UiPath Platform is planned to be offered as a SAP-endorsed application and on the SAP Store, the online marketplace for SAP and partner offerings. For customers that want to drive strong ROI for their SAP investments, they can purchase directly from UiPath to:

  • Automate and Centralise Testing: UiPath Test Suite provides quality assurance for Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and application testing to accelerate scaling through cross-enterprise collaboration and a consistent approach to create and deploy automations.

It simplifies the user experience, accelerates test cycles, and streamlines SAP S/4HANA migrations. UiPath connectors also integrate seamlessly with an existing SAP ecosystem for a smoother development process and through the UiPath partner ecosystem, users have access to hundreds of prebuilt workflows specifically for SAP testing.

  • Unlock Seamless Test Prioritisation with Heatmap and Change Impact Analysis for SAP: UiPath is introducing two new UiPath Test Suite features for seamless test prioritisation: the Heatmap for SAP and Change Impact Analysis for SAP.

With the Heatmap for SAP, users can leverage real-time process insights to uncover test automation and RPA testing opportunities. Using Change Impact Analysis for SAP, users can scope testing around changes made in their SAP system through the impact analysis.
