Automate with Intelligent Process Automation Webcast Recap

This was a SAP User Group webcast.  I am glad they are offering these webcasts as I missed much of this at ASUG Annual Conference/SAPPHIRENOW earlier this month.


Abstract of the webcast:

In the digital economy, there is a disruptive trend in the way work gets done. With high cost saving potentials, robotic process automation revolutionizes high-volume, highly-transactional manual processes.

This webinar will introduce you to SAP’s Intelligent Robotic Process Automation solution, exploring its capabilities, first automation use cases, and the roadmap on how SAP plans to spearhead the intelligent process automation journey. It will cover the solution components and architecture in detail and also address dependencies. Join us to get an interactive glimpse into the solution and discover customer experiences.

Why attend?
