SAP Business Workflow
How to digitize your company workflows
Do you want to optimize business processes in your company? SAP Business Workflows make it easy for you to do so! The range of applications is extensive: From release processes to distributed master data maintenance to the support of complex workflows of virtual teams, a workflow helps you coordinate and process tasks.
SAP's proven technology has evolved with S/4HANA. You will find new possibilities with the flexible workflows as well as the SAP Business Technology Platform Workflow Management. And in the future, it is even conceivable to use workflows in combination with Robotic Process Automation (RPA).
Our abat experts Florian Finauer and Steve Hößler, together with other authors, have written a book on the topic of SAP Business Workflow. It contains a comprehensive overview of topics on 505 pages and reports on the innovations through SAP S/4HANA. The book reaches a wide variety of target groups - depending on the individual topic, the content is relevant for process owners, business users, IT staff, developers, and process consultants.
