What is SAP intelligent RPA online track?
The SAP intelligent RPA online track event is an unofficial SAP event organized by SAP community active members. The event sessions will demonstrate the functionalities of iRPA and describe use cases in which the solution was applied in customers’ business processes. The event was structured in the format of 45-minute lectures on the RPA topics. In this 2nd edition there were new 5 presentations as the same number of first edition. The whole event was live broadcasted on Live Track youtube channel.
What is the event purpose?
The event aimed to promote and share relevant knowledge to all SAP ecosystem professionals who want to know more about the process automation tools. Also is described the importance of Intelligent RPA in any S/4HANA industry solution. This free of charge knowledge transfer was thanks to the voluntary effort of the SAP community organization team, SAP marketing and the great event speakers.
The public will realize by watching the event sessions that there are many possibilities for automating business processes in SAP Clients. We still have many barriers to cross in regard to knowledge of RPA tools. Not only do companies staff have a lot to learn about opportunities to use automation, as well as professionals need to upskill about intelligent SAP solutions.
The original schedule in april in its first edition was for lectures on weekdays. For the first time the event took place on the weekend as an agenda in a single day, which was Saturday. It was hosted in the morning in Americas and in the afternoon to evening in Europe and Asia.
As the regular SAP community events are organized for general topics ranging from technical content to functional business content, which is plenty of sessions options for speakers submission, it’s not easy task to organize a topic-specific event like Intelligent RPA solution. Due this we have to say many thanks to the organizers that has made possible to gather great professionals to share valuable knowledge which has made the event very bright. Thanks to Jerry Janda, Pierre COL, Maiara Regina Schardong Ellwanger, Jesse (ENKHZUL SUKHBAYAR) and Stacey Fish from SAP team. Also big thanks for the SAP community enthusiast Rutvik Chowdary which is a good partner in this journey of knowledge.
What they thought of the event?
The event had more than 2000 views in the first 24 hours. Very pleased result that was. The second iRPA event have repeted the same performance and interest from the first edition and the atendees’ feedback was very good. We felt that the event closely maintained a trend of SAP Inside Tracks events to capture the public’s attention in every session end to end. This made the event itself a complete training for many attendees who watched all the sessions.
