BPM services on the SAP Cloud Platform
Very exciting times these days. You probably have already heard what’s next with SAP Cloud Platform and how it enables customers to become agile optimized and digital enterprises. It is now reaching the “next level” with a multi-cloud architecture and a rich set of business services.
Though this is already very exciting, we are thrilled by the news we want to share with you in the area of BPM services on SAP Cloud Platform. But wait a minute, BPM – Business Process Management – how does this relate to what you have heard about becoming a digital enterprise?
Business agility and ‘speed’ become imperatives for success in the Digital Economy, and customers are looking for ways to accelerate the delivery of innovative solutions that provide an engaging & seamless customer experience. In order to succeed, enterprises need to revise and optimize their existing business processes.
With the addition of workflow and business rules capabilities to SAP Cloud Platform, developers and line-of-business users can now collaboratively design, run and adapt new business processes.
SAP Cloud Platform Workflow
We are very proud to announce the availability of SAP Cloud Platform Workflow in all regions. Cross the traditional wall of your enterprise, develop tailored workflows with everyone and everywhere, adapt changes fast and easier and finally design new processes to be ahead of the curve. With SAP Cloud Platform Workflow it’s easy to rapidly build new workflow-based applications on SAP Cloud Platform or extend standard cloud application workflows within a Web-based environment.
Customers and partners have already started and shared their experiences. Partners like T.CON, Incture or Q_PERIOR, for example, streamlined the leave approval request, tailored a purchase requisitions process or even enabled fast cost reimbursement for medication expenses with SAP Cloud Platform Workflow. Just to quote Sachin Verma, CEO and Founder of Incture Technologies: “Adding workflow capabilities to SAP Cloud Platform makes it an extremely comprehensive and powerful offering that fulfills our customers’ need for tailored business processes.”
