Agenda




10:00 AM – 11:30 AM ET

Segment 1: Automation, Data Integrity and Digital Transformation



The need for our companies to achieve data integrity has never been greater than it is today. High-quality data means better analytics, accurate reporting, improved forecasting, and reliable results of artificial intelligence inquiries. Traditionally, we have achieved better data through a combination of digital transformation efforts, data governance, stewardship, supplemental data used to enrich and complete existing data, and systems like data catalogs and master data management to help standardize data across multiple systems. This application of disparate systems, technologies, and techniques has helped improve data integrity; however, it has also increased the complexity of our IT environments, imposed restrictive conditions on our data processes, and potentially decreased our ability to respond quickly to abrupt disruptions in the market. It doesn’t have to be this way.

In this session, we will examine the end-to-end data journey and how companies achieve data integrity today using modern, cloud-based tools, as well as the increasingly important role that business process automation plays in this process. Specifically, we will talk about the combined benefits of adopting the Precisely Data Integrity Suite and Precisely Automate to achieve the level of data integrity you need in today’s increasingly AI-driven business world.

Speakers: Andrew Hayden & Antonio Cotronio
Time: 30 minutes




For over twenty years, Precisely Automate Solutions have been helping companies improve their initial data quality and process governance in SAP ERP activities. While our customers have improved agility, speed, and data quality in SAP processes, the broader Precisely portfolio of data integrity solutions can further benefit many aspects of your SAP ERP system and SAP-centric processes.

In this session, we will examine the benefits of adopting Precisely solutions beyond Automate to help significantly improve overall data integrity, enabling your ability to fully utilize your SAP data for reporting, analytics, and artificial intelligence. Specifically, we will review Strategic Services, data integration, integrity, and enrichment offerings from Precisely that you can apply to the data you generate or consume in your SAP ERP processes.

Speaker: Andrew Hayden
Time: 30 Minutes




There is a famous Justin Trudeau quote that says, “The pace of change has never been this fast, but it will never be this slow again.” This nearly perfectly sums up the challenges companies face in today’s fast-paced business environment. The question is: Who can you partner with to get ahead of the curve and adopt the right IT and data strategy to keep up in this dynamic world?

In this session we will talk about how Precisely’s Strategic Services can help you identify the best route forward to leverage technology to achieve a leadership position. With decades of experience, we can help you better understand your current status, the opportunities you have and identify a strategy to help you achieve your business goals.

Speakers: David Woods/Shaun Conelly, Andrew Hayden
Time: 30 minutes

11:30 AM – 1:00 PM ET

Segment 2: Better Business with Precisely Automate



As more enterprises adopt a “cloud-first” strategy for core business applications, it is imperative that automating complex, data-intensive SAP processes adopt this same approach. With cloud-based automation solutions, you can easily connect, combine, and enable automation solutions that reach across multiple application ecosystems. And “cloud-first” also means that employees, customers, and vendors can be quickly and easily integrated into automated processes via browser-based web portals.

In this session you’ll learn how the hosted offerings of the Precisely Automate portfolio deliver the most capable, and complete automation platform for complex, data-intensive processes that are centered around SAP ERP systems. With our Automate Evolve platform, that delivers both desktop automation and integrated workflow management, automation solutions can be created, tested and deployed quickly by business teams who intimately understand both the processes they are automating and the data that those processes create and manage. Automate Evolve delivers:

  • Workflow automation
  • API connectivity
  • A low-code/no-code environment for citizen developers
  • Data management automation for mass data processes
  • Process governance and audibility
Speaker: Charles Howard
Time: 30 Minutes




The processes for creating and managing master data are often some of the most complex and challenging your business faces. Even when confined to a single system, like SAP ERP, they can be difficult to standardize and govern. However, few master data creation processes live in a single system and this increases the complexity significantly. Let’s show you a better way.

In this session we will discuss how you can use API connectivity in the Precisely Automate Evolve platform to connect multiple systems to mitigate the complexities of creating and managing master data in SAP-centric business processes. Specifically we will talk about the benefits of using form and workflow automation to seamlessly manage data across multiple systems to deliver faster, better business results. And how you can achieve significant efficiency gains by simplifying and streamlining these processes with Precisely’s Automate.

Speaker: Charles Howard
Time: 30 Minutes




Customers adopting SAP S/4HANA ERP systems continue to face challenges with data creation, collection, and management activities, even when using web-based interfaces such as native Fiori apps and the SAP GUI for HTML. The continued reliance on manual data entry for complex data tasks can slow down your business and result in low-quality, error-prone data. Let us show you a better way to create and manage data using SAP Fiori and GUI for HTML.

In this sessions, we will discuss how Automate Studio 24.1 addresses many of these challenges by offering customers a simple way to automate and govern the creation and collection of SAP data through Excel spreadsheets. This data can be validated, corrected, reviewed, approved, and enhanced in the spreadsheets before being posted to the SAP ERP system. These abilities apply to both SAP ECC and SAP S/4HANA ERP systems.

Speaker: Martin Monka
Time 30 Minutes

1:00 PM – 2:30 PM ET

Segment 3: The Future of Automation



Companies are increasingly turning to AI to enhance efficiency and drive better decision-making. If you are manually managing SAP master data creation and management processes, it is highly likely that the data in your SAP ERP system is not of the highest quality. Let us show you a better way with the new Intelligent Autocomplete feature available with Precisely’s Automate Evolve platform.   In this webinar, we will discuss how Precisely integrates AI into our Automated Evolve, with our new Intelligent Autocomplete, to improve processes and initial data quality and what this means for the integrity of data in your SAP ERP systems. Specifically, we will cover:>

  • The integration of Intelligent Autocomplete into process automation
  • How Precisely’s Automate approach to intelligence for SAP master data processes creates an AI-driven data and process improvement loop
  • How AI can help identify and replace business rules in process automation
Speaker: Martin Monka
Time: 30 Minutes




Automation is at the forefront of many digital transformation efforts. In this session, we will review the recent additions to the Automate product line as well as what’s next for Studio and Evolve. Specifically, we will discuss:

  • The recent introduction of automation for Fiori apps into Automate Studio
  • Our upcoming early adopter program for using AI to improve SAP material master data processes
  • Why end-to-end automation is the future for SAP-centric business processes
  • How Precisely sees automation evolving in the future
