SAP Business Workflow expert and ASUG volunteer Susan Keohan (@skeohan) has not only pulled together this track, but has started a wonderful blogging initiative introducing some of the speakers to all who are lucky to be at the ASUG Annual Conference this year. Take a look and tell me if you are not inspired!
Meet the Speaker – Alan Rickayzen (@alanrick)
Now when you know more about some of the speakers let’s drill down into details. What you will actually experience and learn from all these great folks.
Meet Susan Keohan, Peter McNulty and Eduardo Chiocconi to discuss questions like: Are your users still thrilled with the traditional SBWP workflow inbox? Do you (should you) have POWL (Personal Objects Work List)? And what about SAP Netweaver Business Process Management (BPM)?
Key learning points: Learn what are the benefits of each option, what SAP has planned for upcoming releases, and understand the importance of getting the right information – in the right tool.
In SAP Workflow Classics, Martin Maguth (also presenting The Cornerstones of SAP Workflow) and Torsten Schnorpfeil will show how to enhance your investment in SAP by activating and using standard SAP workflow templates, which are already part of every SAP ERP system. Three key workflow templates will be introduced: for financial accounting, purchasing, and for system administration. Their functional scope and technical components will be reviewed. In addition, you will see how to configure and use those templates in your SAP system with detailed step-by-step implementation instructions.
Join Susan Keohan and Alan Rickayzen in the SAP Workflow and Business Process Management Open Forum to meet up and network with other SAP Workflow and BPM professionals and get your questions answered.
Sue and Alan will be also leading SAP Workflow and Events: Control the Flow – a session covering best practices for delivering events. SAP Business Workflow uses the powerful ‘publish and subscribe’ paradigm to allow you to initiate, control, and terminate workflows. But in order for customers to truly benefit, we need to be able to create our own events. Should you use status management or change documents? Find out in this session!
In this round table, the Influence Council will mainly gather customer requirements. The purpose is to influence SAP development efforts.
Meet Alan Rickayzen and King Tantivejkul from Colgate-Palmolive in Putting the Intelligence Back Into Process Operations
This presentation will reveal the technical aspects of new SAP software: SAP Operational Process Intelligence built on SAP HANA, the integration to existing SAP workflow engines, and its customer perspective. Automating your business processes in SAP, whether with SAP Business Workflow, SAP NetWeaver BPM, or just plain IMG customizing is a huge step towards sustaining your competitiveness against whatever the future holds. Your company now has an automated engine that drives itself. But 20 years after the birth of R/3, the rocket science of process automation is behind us, and the lessons learned from process reengineering have been digested. It is time to focus on the oiling of these processes and the benefits your company has by putting more intelligence into the day-to-day running of the processes. Hear about the new SAP tooling, which sits on top of the existing process-automation engines, giving your company the transparency of the processes across system boundaries. See how to let the intelligence of the workforce add their experience and know-how to drive and fine-tune the running of the individual processes better than ever before.
SAP Operational Process Intelligence Ramp-Up Experiences – Best Practices and Lessons Learned hear about the experiences of customers and partners who participated in the SAP Operational Process Intelligence ramp-up program. SAP Operational Process Intelligence is an SAP HANA technology solution offering visibility into all aspects of business operations and performance to provide process participants the real-time information they need to stay on track. Do not miss finding out the best practices and lessons learned from both an organizational and technology perspective.
Hope this is a bit helpful as agenda builder. Now go rock at ASUG and remember to share your findings and experiences when you come back!
