What do we mean by automation in SAP?

In the context of SAP (Systems, Applications, and Products in Data Processing), automation refers to the use of software and technology to streamline, optimize, and automate business processes. This can include a wide range of activities, such as:

Top 5 automation software in SAP BTP ecosystem 

SAP Build Process Automation

This tool streamlines business processes and enhances efficiency by incorporating various capabilities like workflow management, robotic process automation (RPA), decision management, process visibility, and AI. 

Some of its features include integration with API sources such as SAP CAP & RAP, new pre-built content packages tailored to different business lines, and capabilities for operating independently of the Microsoft Excel application​​​​​​​​​​.

SAP Integration Suite 

Sap Integration Suite is one of the key components of SAP’s enterprise automation solution. SAP Integration Suite offers over 80 standard adapters for SAP applications and various protocols, along with more than 170 non-SAP connectors.

SAP Signavio

SAP Signavio focuses on process analysis and modeling. Together with SAP Integration suit, they enable end-to-end integration and automation of business processes across landscapes.

In addition to the top SAP BTP orchestration software, it’s worth mentioning two prominent tools in the broader orchestration software landscape:

RunMyJobs

This tool is renowned for its cloud-based automation and orchestration capabilities. RunMyJobs is particularly noted for its scalability, reliability, and ability to integrate with various systems and applications, enhancing operational efficiencies.

RunMyJobs enables companies to keep a clean core, regardless of whether they use BTP. If they use BTP, RunMyJobs enables keeping a clean core since it leverages an extension of BTP to connect to S/4HANA. If the companies don’t use BTP, RunMyJobs still enables a clean core since it has an API integration directly to S/4HANA, which also provides an elevated level of reliability. No code-level customizations are required to use RunMyJobs with S/4HANA.

ActiveBatch

Known for its automation capabilities, ActiveBatch offers comprehensive workflow orchestration. It provides scheduling options, integration capabilities, and a user-friendly interface. This makes it a popular choice for managing complex workflows across various environments. 

A significant share of workloads run on systems of record. ERP is the most commonly used system of record in enterprises, and SAP is the market leader. You can identify SAP workload automation vendors.

What is the difference between BTP and S/4HANA?

SAP S/4HANA and SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP) are distinct yet complementary offerings within SAP’s ecosystem. SAP S/4HANA is an enterprise resource planning (ERP) suite built on the SAP HANA in-memory database. It is designed to manage core business processes such as finance, human resources, manufacturing, and supply chain. 

BTP is a collection of technologies offered by SAP that enables businesses to integrate and extend their SAP solutions and optimize their business processes while maintaining a clean core. BTP supports a clean core since it’s a collection of tools. You can customize those tools and still keep your clean core (i.e., your ERP untouched).
