Business Process Management (BPM) at SAP TechEd 2011

Management and monitoring of business processes and rules is a core theme for SAP’s technology platform, both SAP built-in and model-driven processes. For this year’s SAP TechEd, we have created a comprehensive agenda of 16 hours of hands-on sessions and more than 11 hours of lectures (being offered at least twice in Las Vegas) to cover business process and rules management. You can find the full schedule on the SAP TechEd websites for Las Vegas,Madrid, and Bangalore.


Depending on your background as SAP Business Suite developer, SAP NetWeaver BPM developer, business process expert, or enterprise architect, your personal agenda will look different.
