With Ruum, Spotlight and RPA, SAP is expanding its core portfolio with three more products. They come from the New Ventures and Technologies (NVT) division. Small teams should act like start-ups in it and develop innovative products in this way – comparable to programs from other corporations such as Microsoft’s garage.
Ruum has existed since 2016, the tool is intended to map business processes in software without programming knowledge and thus automate them. Robotic Process Automation (RPA) also comes from the field of process automation, where bots are supposed to take over routine tasks that were previously performed by humans, such as copying data from Excel. This should go faster and at the same time avoid mistakes.
Spotlight saw the light of day in 2018. Business processes should be checked for their efficiency with the software.
The -tool identifies whether a task requires significant manual effort. Companies should then automate these as part of their digitization. From now on, Spotlight is a core element of the new SAP Business Process Intelligence (BPI) division.
