The combination of Business Process Management (BPM) tools and enterprise services unleashes the full power of SOA and is an exclusive and unmatched offering from SAP. All SAP Community members now have the opportunity to easily access this powerful technology in a test drive.


Effective today, SAP started a beta test for three new pilot Simple Sample Applications using SAP NetWeaver Business Process Management (BPM) technology. These pilot apps are implementations of small business processes, such as

  • Approve Sales Order Change Request,
  • Approve Purchase Requisition and Create Purchase Order, and
  • Manage Leave Request

Send us an email to be among the first who get access to these new Simple Sample Applications, and let us know what you think.


Additionally, SAP delivers another package of new Simple Sample Applications, showing the consumption of popular enterprise services in SAP Business Suite 7. Simple Sample Apps serve as a starting point and accelerator for your own SOA projects. The new apps cover use cases from the following business areas:

  • Enterprise Asset Management
  • Human Capital Management
  • Manufacturing Execution
  • Aftermarket Sales and Service 

All Simple Sample Applications can be found ready-to-run on the Enterprise Services Workplace platform, hosted by SAP, together with technical documentation, coding, implementation models and demo data.

    What exactly is included in “applications”? BPM models, Web Dynpro UIs, etc?

    It might also be useful to describe in the blog what the application requirements are.

    Related question: are these Simple Apps replacing the business packages?


    1. Wolfgang Schaper

      the BPM samples basically include the same assets as all other simple samples: description, technical documentation, models, sample data, installation file, and of course the application itself.

      As long as you run the application in SAP’s testing environment there are no requirements at all on your side. If you want to install the applications locally, the requirements are SAP NetWeaver CE 7.1 EhP1 and NWDS.

      These sample applications don’t replace anything. They are an offer of SAP to help customers consuming enterprise services, on top of all other stuff we offer.

      Best regards,
