First App Based on SAP HANA Cloud Hits the SAP Store
Next-gen business process management app first to be SAP certified for integration with SAP HANA Cloud
Berlin-based Signavio has been providing software tools for business project modeling and analysis since 2009. But instead of targeting only a few modeling experts, which most of its competitors do, the company has focused on getting as many participants as possible involved in process design and optimization. Because of its focus on engaging all participants, the company has emerged as a leader in collaborative process design.
Signavio was keen on offering a Web-based, certified application based on the SAP HANA Cloud for modeling business processes using Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) 2.0.
To develop this solution, Signavio took advantage of the resources and tools available as a participant in the recently launched SAP HANA Cloud Applications Partner program. The company also leveraged its deep experience delivering business process management (BPM) solutions as a cloud service.
Through the integration with SAP HANA Cloud, customers using Signavio Process Editor have convenient access to a professional process-modeling platform that provides software quality and data protection.
This completely Web-based modeling tool requires no installation, and administration efforts are kept to a minimum.
“Delivering our application, now certified for integration with SAP HANA Cloud, provides an even more attractive technical solution to customers,” said Gero Decker, CEO of Signavio.
