AI & Automation SAP Community Tutorial Challenge 2022: Unleash Your Hyperautomation Skills

Who said that a new year means a new challenge? Well, that’s never been so true!

Let’s launch the new 2022 AI & Automation tutorial challenge on SAP Community, starting now.

Today, infusing artificial intelligence and automation capabilities are key to enabling automated, accelerated, and sustainable corporate processes, and thus building intelligent enterprises of tomorrow.

All these services are part of the free-tier model of SAP BTP, allowing you to start with a productive account right away — try out selected services up to a specified capacity limit and switch easily to the paid service plan, without losing any work.

In addition, the use case can also integrate other services and applications, both SAP (e.g. SAP S/4HANA, SAP SuccessFactors…) and non-SAP.
