The Silicon Review
Today, every business is a digital business. End-to-end processes can span dozens of enterprise apps and digital platforms, and companies need to ensure that each one performs as designed. A disruption to business continuity is unacceptable – so every platform needs to work flawlessly. That’s where Worksoft automation comes in.
Manual labor is being replaced with digital labor – and Worksoft offers an essential automation path. Worksoft automates business process testing and discovery to ensure companies are ready for business even in the face of unprecedented change. Worksoft functional test automation lets you check every process and app for every project and across your enterprise, as often as you like.

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 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.

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.
SAP Test Automation Software
As a market leader in enterprise software, SAP’s mission is to help every customer become a best-run business. From cloud and in-memory databases to mobile, analytics, and beyond, they offer solutions and services for every business challenge. Worksoft's automation software for SAP testing delivers end-to-end quality assurance.
“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.”
- Jens Neuhaus, Director of Test Automation Service at Siemens Energy
“With automated testing replacing thousands of manual tests, the team shortened the timeline for each refresh by nearly 50% while also enhancing quality and achieving significant savings on each refresh.”
