Hands-on workshop on Intelligent Business Operations with SAP – free for SAP customers and prospects
Upcoming dates in the UK:
Option 1: 27th June
Option 2: 25th July
Along with Tom Scaysbrook from CompriseIT, I am hosting the UK Intelligent Business Operations Technical Academy in the SAP offices in Maidenhead on June 27th and July 25th. Tom and I have just been preparing for the day and I’m really looking forward to running it. The idea is that each attendee will have access to 2 cloud images; one running SAP Process Orchestration, the other running the Operational Process Intelligence on HANA image. Although we will begin the day with an overview of both Process Orchestration and Operational Process Intelligence, we’re determined to give attendees as much hands-on time as possible so we will get them logged into their images and working on the 4 classroom exercises as quickly as possible.
SAP partner CompriseIT have unparalleled, real world experience of SAP Process Orchestration and SAP Operational Process Intelligence so I am really grateful to have Tom in the classroom with me. His knowledge and expertise will make for a very informative workshop.
In Exercise 1 attendees will extend an exiting master data quality BPMN Model with the Developer Studio tooling, they’ll add a Gateway to split the process into 2 parallel threads, they’ll add interfaces to the human activities and perform the necessary mapping to redeploy the process. Its a fairly sophisticated business process (bearing in mind the limitations imposed by accommodating the workshop in a single day) which calls a nested Integration Centric Process and waits for the external process to finish before coming to its own completion. A good chance to get to grips with the capability of the BPM aspect of Process Orchestration.
Exercise 2 gets to grips with the ESR and Integration Flow modeling. Attendees will be creating data types, message types, message mappings and using the Process Integration Designer to add additional receivers to an existing integration flow.
Exercise 3 imports the master data quality process into HANA studio and builds a business scenario using Operational Process Intelligence on HANA. The important phases of the business process will be defined along with the cycle times, count and duration measures to provide insight into running process landscape.
Finally in Exercise 4 attendees will learn how to create, execute and monitor business rules with the SAP Business Rules Management and how to integrate business rules into the business process they worked on in Exercise 1. The challenge is to create a business rule that decides if an approval for each customer record is necessary or not and integrate the rule into the business process. At each stage attendees will be able to redeploy their changes to witness the effect.
So Process Orchestration with BPM, BRM, PI and SAP Operational Process Intelligence all in one day. Quite a challenge some will say! Join us and we’ll prove it’s straightforward and doable.
We still have spaces on each of the workshop dates (27th June, 25th July) so if you’re interested please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. DON’T FORGET TO BRING YOUR OWN MACHINE!
