RPA / SAP / LICENSE

  • 1.  RPA / SAP / LICENSE

    Posted 20 days ago
    Hello,

    I'd like to open a discussion about RPA <> Winshuttle licenses.

    Technically, a Winshuttle license is assign to a person.
    But the other way, often when you program a RPA process in SAP you are using a technical user.

    My consideration is the following : when you work in a big company using different SAP systems, the deployment of a RPA process is no easy as often SAP systems are not so homogeneous (different screen, different behavior, etc...).

    Winshuttle promote RPA and therefore, I see only avantages to integrate Winshuttle execution into RPA step. Activities out of SAP are the same (I collect the same data at the same place). Then easy to create specific script in Shuttle for each scenario and each SAP system. The role of the RPA will be to prepare the data file and select the correct script based on event driven.

    Then can it be reasonable to have a kind of RPA licenses for Winshuttle that will be assigned to a technical user ?

    What do you think ? Do you see interest to integrate Winshuttle into a step of RPA ? Do you already experiment yourself ? And if yes, what is the outcome ?

    Best Regards,

    Your post about RPA with Winshuttle is timely.  We are in the process of testing out a possible pricing model that supports RPA integration with Winshuttle for Financial Accounting use cases.  Our intent is to fine-tune this new pricing model with Financial Account related T-codes first before considering it for other use cases.

    If this interests people who aren't currently using Winshuttle for their Financial Accounting use cases but are looking to use RPA for Financial Accounting, then they can respond to this thread and we will get you in touch with our product management team member who is trialing this RPA for Winshuttle pricing model for Financial Accounting use cases.

    Lastly, I'll have another RPA licensing clarification with Winshuttle products that I'll be sharing later this month so stay tuned!

    ​Hello

    We alreday have an RPA process installed when we request a new vendor in SAP and our RPA´s have all a licence and SAP-login dependent on what process we run and it works fine.
    So each RPA has a designated task if you will.
    The robot will collect data from external process, collect the data and compare to exsisting parameters in SAP.
    Afterwards in the outcome, data is populated on a winshuttle-form and that is the starting phase for the Winshuttle and then the manual governance-process starts.
