Intelligent Automation for SAP Business ByDesign 22.05: Two small things which may change a lot
Upon the fact that most of us already got familiar with SAP Best Practices for Intelligent Automation for SAP Business ByDesing and that more and more of customers and partners finds interest in this new opportunity it is good time to add two more things which will increase your freedom and flexibility to build even more automated processes for our SAP Business ByDesign tenants.
- Bots triggered via Application Programming Interface (API)Till today we had an opportunity to choose between attended and unattended scheduled bots, the first option is to run a bot with interaction of the user, while the other allowed to run them without user interaction through scheduler.
Now we are adding third option to trigger the unattended bots via API call to make the process even more automated. Shortly speaking, the new type of API trigger opens a dedicated endpoint that allows to start the execution of a process or an automation. The new API on SAP Business ByDesign side is provided to enable triggering of bots.I believe that this will help to further reduce user effort in building new processes where the applications are “talking directly”, completely without user interaction.

- Use own templates in the Document Information Extraction.
Another feature which is now available for SAP Business ByDesign users is a possibility of creating your own templates instead of using predefined schemas or pre-trained models.

I hope that the features provided with current release will open even more opportunities for building automation around most common processes in your organization and will make life of user more efficient.

Finally, soon we will provide you with further examples of bots using UI of SAP Business ByDesign, so stay tuned and eager to automate your business.
