The video contains a short overview of main improvements available in RPA Express 2.3.0. For the full list of new features, see their description below the video.
SAP has ~425,000 customers in 180 countries, including 92% of Forbes Global 2000, making it one of the most popular enterprise digital ecosystems. Now, WorkFusion offers full SAP automation, adding SAP GUI desktop automation to the experience of automating web and back-end applications.
Previously, digging into server API and custom ABAP coding were complicated and required a lot of technical knowledge, thus increasing automation costs. WorkFusion Bots provided fully featured web automation, while manipulations in the SAP GUI client were limited and based mainly on using keystrokes, clicks on coordinates, OCR, etc.
Genuine SAP GUI desktop automation introduced in the release is intuitive and aimed at business users, with a new SAP connector making interaction with the desktop client more robust.
The approach is the same as when automating a standard desktop application, such as Excel. A WorkFusion Bot sees the SAP GUI internal structure as any other Windows application, so that it is possible to record workflows, inspect elements and execute scripts. To start automating, all that is needed is to enable scripting for the desktop client and server.
Traditional SAP GUI screens have plenty of controls. A set of essential controls — for example: ALV grids, tabs, column trees, etc. — explored with the help of SAP experts and customers can be used in the majority of automation use cases.
