Worksoft Products

Worksoft provides the world’s leading automation platform for enterprise applications. The fifth-generation platform provides automated business process discovery, documentation, compliance, testing, risk analysis, and RPA to support critical applications, including SAP, Oracle, Salesforce, Workday, SuccessFactors, ServiceNow, and more.

Worksoft Analyze

Worksoft Analyze is an easy-to-use solution that enables automation professionals to discover actual end-to-end business processes without having to ask someone how it’s done. Worksoft Analyze eliminates not only the need for user interviews but also all the resulting manual documentation. This drastically reduces manual labor and can cut weeks or even months from the overall project timeline. Best of all, because the business processes are now defined and documented within the system, you can use them to jump-start test automation efforts by importing them as test scripts into Worksoft Certify or even as business blueprints in SAP.

Worksoft Certify

Worksoft Certify is the industry-leading test automation solution for enterprise applications including SAP, Workday, Salesforce.com, Oracle, and Web Apps. Built to test complex business processes that span multiple applications, Certify ensures that your software and business work exactly as planned. It enables business users and QA teams to run automated exploratory, functional, regression and integration tests across hosted and on-premise applications.

Process Mining for SAP

What if you could leverage your existing SAP system as a comprehensive source of knowledge of business process – all without consultants, data models or extensive IT commitments or without stealing valuable time from business users? Process Mining for SAP extracts the actual business process directly from SAP, dramatically reducing the interviews, meetings and other costly manual activities associated with business process discovery. Worksoft enables companies to jump-start SAP transformation projects with Process Mining by better understanding existing processes and automatically creating regression assets from mined processes for use in automated testing. Whether you’re in the planning phase for a S/4HANA migration or looking to accelerate change management for an existing SAP implementation, Process Mining can help you get there faster.

Worksoft Solutions: Intelligent Automation for Digital Transformation

Worksoft automation helps you get there faster and with more confidence with comprehensive solutions for process discovery, analytics, and testing.

Discovery & Documentation

Worksoft Analyze offers two discovery approaches. These can be used independently or together to accelerate business process discovery and produce the highest fidelity insight offered in the industry.

Process Mining for SAP is one way to jump-start continuous business process discovery. It does this by automatically analyzing historical data and documents from enterprise applications and constructing accurate process flows.

With just a transport, Process Mining automatically identifies and mines unique performances of business processes across SAP modules including Sales & Distribution, Materials Management, and Warehouse Management. The recovery is automatic, with no special requirements of IT or business users. The result is business process knowledge and understanding in record time.

Process Mining also features Worksoft Synthesis technology, which transforms mined data into executable business processes. Customers can recreate the end user steps required to re-perform the business process from an end user perspective. This creates business process discovery with enough fidelity for Robotic Process Automation or automated testing using Worksoft Certify.

Visualization & Metrics

Visualization is automatic in Worksoft Analyze. The Analyze multi-variant view is always current and always reflects the actual business process as performed by end users, whether mined or captured.

Business process mapping is a tedious task. Although perfect for communicating workflow and variation, creating and keeping diagrams up-to-date is time-consuming and costly. Worksoft Analyze creates diagrams on-the-fly, with an always current representation of business processes ideal for specific inquiry or analysis.

Worksoft Analyze maintains discovered knowledge automatically. The Workspace concept makes it easy to organize information and identify the business process area of interest and drill down.

Collaboration is part of the system, with built-in sharing features ideal for teams discovering, documenting, optimizing and using business process knowledge to the benefit of the enterprise. Analyze easily leverages the same underlying business process knowledge across unique investigations and projects without disruption to other users.

Analysis & Optimization

Worksoft Analyze delivers KPIs and LPIs in the context of business processes. Business Analysts and process professionals easily surface information in Analyze for the identification and diagnosis of process inefficiency, exceptions and regular workflows. Analyze has built-in metrics, and easily integrates with 3rd party systems for extended analysis.

  • Visualize:The Worksoft Analyze heat map concept places KPIs and metrics in the context of business processes, automatically scaling to the business activities and processes of interest. This makes the visual identification of outliers easy to identify for further investigation.
  • Correlate:Using two KPIs at once, Analyze performs correlation analysis. Easily compare utilization to performance, test coverage, failures, or any 3rd party system metric. Identifying outliners and best performers by complex, correlated data is as simple as a visual scan. Analyze makes the connection for even seemingly unrelated causes easy to spot.
  • Collaborate:Worksoft Analyze easily shares analysis and scenarios across Analyze users. Quickly create different workspaces for looking at and using business process knowledge. Workspaces can and often do overlap, allowing the same underlying business process knowledge to support many different projects and investigations. Analyze always reflects a full understanding of the known business process knowledge without requiring intervention or change by the user.

Client Testimonies

“Because we can link test scenarios from Worksoft into SAP Solution Manager quite easily, we use it for planning, tracking, and monitoring test execution. And by having process documentation in SAP Solution Manager, we have the foundation for test management because test designs rely on that process and technical information.”
