SAP Process Automation is the next-gen no-code tool to boost process automation with simplicity, support automation and extensions with workflows, improve process efficiency by automating repetitive work, add the value of artificial intelligence (AI) to business process automation as well as foster efficient collaboration between business and IT. Sounds exciting? It truly is. Let’s dive deeper.

What is SAP Process Automation?

SAP Process Automation provides you with a powerful new tool to create value faster. It simplifies and accelerates process automation with a new no-code experience, visual drag-and-drop tools and pre-built industry-specific content. You can now build workflows as well as automate tasks and decisions with ease and, if needed, collaborate with development teams to meet all their automation needs.

To jump-start projects, you can select from a quickly growing library of more than 340 pre-built process flows, forms, business rules, dashboards, and bot automations across applications, lines of business, and industries. For example, SAP S/4HANA content is available for more than 100 automation scenarios in the finance, manufacturing, sales, services, sourcing and procurement, and supply chain lines of business. SAP SuccessFactors and SAP Ariba software development kits (SDKs) provide predefined activities to easily automate key tasks in these applications, augmented by SDKs for popular office productivity tools for desktop automation. All of this is readily available in a dedicated store accessible directly from SAP Process Automation.

To help ensure compliance and automate processes in a scalable and reliable fashion, the service is designed to meet stringent enterprise-class SLAs, compliance, and privacy regulations. The solution further provides native integration with SAP applications and connectivity to non-SAP applications to enable automation of complex workflows spanning multiple applications and lines of business.

What are the benefits of SAP Process Automation?

SAP Process Automation enables organizations of all sizes to simplify automation with visual drag-and-drop tools and industry-specific content, automate faster with business context in a unified AI-powered workflow management and robotic process automation (RPA) solution as well as manage processes and automations with confidence on a trusted, enterprise grade, multi-cloud platform.

With SAP Process Automation, you can manage your processes and automations confidently on the cloud of choice while interoperating with their existing infrastructure. IT departments can empower business users to build process workflows, automations, and decision models while safeguarding operations with centralized governance, testing, and monitoring capabilities.

SAP Process Automation enables you to automate faster by giving users easy access to workflow management, task, and decision automation capabilities in a single tool. Built-in AI capabilities enable you to make your processes more intelligent by leveraging machine learning for decision assistance, intelligent document processing, and more.


SAP Process Automation helps fast-track your adoption of automation by offering an intuitive, simplified user experience. No-code tools for automating and adapting simpler processes and tasks encourage more people to become citizen developers. By allowing them to build and change low-complexity process automations, you can enhance your ability to rapidly adapt, improve, and innovate business processes.
