What it means

  • SAP embodies Best Business Practices for Transaction processing, and provides a Workflow engine
  • But with many organisations, SAP workflow implementations are limited to very basic Purchase Requisition or Leave approval scenarios
  • The reason is that real business processes are seldom deterministic, involve multiple stakeholders and incorporate unstructured content such as documents and images
  • SAP is not well suited to supporting collaboration processes, but SharePoint is the perfect platform
  • Utilising standard Windows Workflow capabilities, or accelerators like K2, cross-functional, cross-application, document centric business processes can be effectively managed
