Getting started with SAP iRPA 2.0 – Updated 2022

SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation (iRPA) is a complete automation suite where software robots are designed to mimic humans by replicating tedious actions that have no added value, it helps reduce human error and save efforts and time.

SAP iRPA is transforming into its better version by releasing new updates almost every week and since it is a Hot-Skill in SAP community everyone is interested in getting their hands dirty with SAP iRPA Extension suite service.

But where and how to start working on iRPA? We have similar blogs available on SAP community which i referenced to when i was learning iRPA but those seem to be a little outdated and the steps in processes have changed and become a lot easier now. So, I complied this short blog which will help you kickstart start your journey in SAP iRPA.

Why this blog? My motivation and personal pain point behind writing this blog post was that all of the mentioned content in this blog is available already but NOT AT ONE PLACE so it gets a little tricky and time consuming to get hold of all the UPDATED CONTENT which would really help one to quickly grasp the IRPA skills. So this is a one stop blog for anybody willing to gain IRPA skill set and that is what makes this blog different.

I intentionally didn’t add a lot of snapshots of iRPA interface in this blog because they keep on changing a lot and then it feels a little confusing. So instead of it used links to resources which contains updated steps.

      I couldn't agree with you more Pierre !

      SPA enables users to not just automate the business processes but it also makes it a lot easier to keep track of processes, parallelly run / manage different automations, analyze data captured from all the deployed solutions for increased efficiency in future deployments.

      Thank you,
