September 15, 2020
On September 15, the virtual SAP MaxAttention Innovation workshop “Business Operations Self-Healing” took place. This wrap-up blog provides an overview about the focus topics of the workshop.
In the recent years the speed of business continuously increased. There has been a strong focus on digital transformation (mobile apps, AI, IoT, big data) that became part of companies’ technological landscape. But essentially it comes down to one: the ability to quickly harness the large amount of digital information and deliver an exceptional experience and business value for the end customer. Businesses must now, in COVID-19 crisis, scale their initiatives in a matter of days or weeks. In this unique moment, IT can lead the way to enable companies to progress more quickly than ever before. The question becomes, how to stay focused on the essential and how to do more with less?
SAP’s strategy to be the experience company powered by the intelligent enterprise aims to help customers to thrive in the new economy where being a data-driven enterprise and delivering exceptional experiences is key to their success. SAP provides the Business Technology Platform that allows organizations to focus much stronger on their business, rather than on the technical building blocks. The Business Technology Platform provides enterprises the flexibility and speed in the development of business applications as customers and employees demand better experiences.
The SAP MaxAttention Innovation Workshop “Business Operations Self-Healing” focused on
- how companies can bring innovation into their company fast,
- how they can help their employees focus on the essential work, and
- how they can leverage the benefits of Business Technology Platform to implement self-healing capabilities in their organizations.
Alina Boissay, Director at SAP MaxAttention Center of Expertise at SAP, kicked-off the workshop with an introduction into the challenges of digital economy and how SAP’s strategy aims to help its customers through technology.
Glenn Svensson, Program Director of SAP Business Operations Self-Healing (BoSh) at SAP discussed why companies need self-healing capabilities. Businesses need to build resilience through better and smarter tools that serve their employees, so they can be more effective and be able to solve problems through guided augmentation. Problems that do not need any human intervention should be automated through insights and intelligence.
