Course Summary

SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation (SAP Intelligent RPA) is a complete automation suite, where software robots are designed to mimic humans by replacing manual clicks and automate end-to-end scenarios for definable and repeatable business processes. The solution consists of several components that enable you to develop your own bots by capturing your process, creating your workflow, configuring, executing, monitoring, and debugging your automations.

This course provides an update on the solution since the last course, “How to Build Bots with SAP Intelligent RPA”. In the previous course, you learned how to create your own bots in the Desktop Studio, how to configure and monitor them with the Cloud Factory, and how to make them run as digital workers or digital assistants.

In this course, you’ll learn what’s new with the different components of the solution, like the Desktop Studio and the Cloud Factory, which you can try out in trial mode. You’ll also be introduced to the Cloud Studio for Process Design, which is not part of the trial. If you missed the original course, you can still access all the content to prepare for this course.

Here is what some participants are saying about the course:
