There are very few instances in the world of business applications and information systems where you can look at something new and say “Wow, if I implement that we can really gain some tangible benefit to my organization…” SAP Event Management is just such an application.
Too many times we hear senior executives ask questions like “How are my processes performing against the plan?” or “Where are the issues in my processes and how many do I have?”
Companies need to improve productivity and one way to achieve this is by moving to a “manage by exception” operating model.
How is this accomplished? Simply put, by performing the following steps: create a plan, implement the plan, monitor the execution against the plan and manage the exceptions from that plan.
Why is this book entitled “SAP’s Best Kept Secret?” Well, SAP Event Management is the answer to these questions, if you have SAP you most likely already have the software and yet you don’t know about it or its benefits.
The intent of this book is to unravel this secret and make it clear to you about what it is, what it can do for you, and why it is such a valuable addition to SAP’s solution landscape….
