Winshuttle: Data Quality and RPA for SAP

An Intellyx Brain Candy Brief

In the digital era, data is a key strategic asset. Unfortunately for many organizations, however, the quality of that strategic asset is severely lacking. In many enterprises, the primary system of record is SAP and manually moving data in and out of this critical system becomes a primary source of data quality problems.

In complex enterprise environments, it is the intricacy of loading data into SAP that often leads to these data quality challenges. Winshuttle aims to solve this problem by enabling business users to automate the movement of data between SAP and both Excel and Sharepoint (and also between Salesforce and Excel). But more than just allowing the automated movement of data, this data transfer can be tied to application workflows and governance policies to ensure the quality of data throughout the load or transformation lifecycle.

Even more interesting, the company has introduced its Robotic Process Automation (RPA) for SAP solution. Using their automation engine and its deep SAP integration, business users can automate manual, repetitive data entry and related business processes to improve data accuracy and reduce cycle times. Executed interactively to handle any exceptions, the RPA engine acts as a force multiplier increasing the productivity of employees.
