RAM’s answer below is very detailed.

The reason SAP automation is sonchallenging is the element descriptions in the DOM are all in German. This is the reason the jobs make little sense. VA1 is initials for Vert - Sales in German.

For SAP TEST Automation specific tools like QTP, Worksoft, Tricentis are used because these tools have integrated their tools to SAP specific GUI and come with ready connectors to SAP.
Further these tools are integrated to SAP Solution Manager for Test Management./ Microfocus ALM/ they have their own Test Management tools.
Test data Management given that SAP is a packaged integrated application is different from Non SAP systems,.
SAP Testing frameworks leverage these Testing tools.
In the non SAP Applications choice is Selenium based framework.

SAP testing is more about the Integration testing, SAP have modules and these modules functionality can be tested only by the well known persons/experts of the Module. for example finance is a module and it have several other prerequisites, which are to be known before to testing. So SAP testing is not different for non SAP testing but Module/Domain experts can test it very easily, non SAP testers should first learn on the SAP modules how they function and all based on that they can do SAP testing.

I'm looking for the best test automation tool for SAP. We have about 600 users and the tests are mostly functional. I see that in a lot of reviews Worksoft is the most popular choice but is it the best and reasonably priced product?

Reasonably priced is an interesting term. I'd suggest looking at TCO as a better metric and include the cost of both building and maintaining the automated test suite.  Tricentis Tosca is now a part of the SAP product list and the SP developers are using it to test their own releases. Tosca is replacing the SAP CBTA tooling and the companion product LiveCompare is replacing SAP's Component Analyser. Google "SAP Tricentis Partnership" for details.
