Those of you in the Workflow space may have seen this coming – after all, the previous edition of the ‘Workflow Bible’ was printed in 2009, and the first edition – the original, was printed in 2004. And my, how things do change in the SAP world!
One thing that doesn’t change is the need for businesses to optimize their processes, and this can be accomplished by using (wait for it…) SAP Business Workflow.
The latest edition of the SAP-Press book will be available to purchase on August 5, with electronic versions available. As a co-author, I was pretty excited to receive a copy (OK, two copies!) today.
But this blog isn’t really about selling the book. Those of you who are trying to learn workflow will make up your own minds about that.
This blog is to thank the people who made it possible – and to tell you something you may not know.
Secondly, Ginger Gatling, when it was time to create the second version, you rallied a team from all over the world, and you were an inspiration to future cat-herders everywhere. Not only that, but you (YOU) are the person who engineered the donation of all author proceeds to Doctors Without Borders, which has set the model for many others, including (but not limited to) Enterprise Information Management.
Third, this book, at its mere ~1000 pages, not only represents some of the best information on the newest SAP technologies (yeah, we mention HANA, and we talk OpenUI5) it also represents the blood, sweat and tears of all of its authors – Head on over to the SAP-Press site to see who they are! They are all passionate people and I am grateful to hold a bit of their knowledge in my hands.
I’d also like to thank Kelly Weaver and Laura Korslund for their outstanding work in getting this thing done.
Oh, and one more thing? Even if you don’t need to know about SAP Business Workflow, you can still join in the SAP community by being part of the ‘I Care, I Gave, I Inspire’ missions. Doctors Without Borders is being kept too busy these days.
