SAP Signavio with its Business Process Intelligence (BPI) solutions represents the next-generation process layer within the SAP portfolio, providing a comprehensive and holistic offer to transform business processes end to end. In the very first post of this innovation series we realized that SAP Signavio provides a wide range of solutions to support a seamless and smooth business transformation – from business process design, benchmarking, gap analysis and improvement to process change management. But are there any use cases to SAP Signavio other than business transformation? Yes, there are. SAP Signavio covers various scenarios to get you towards the Intelligent Enterprise of tomorrow. Let’s dive right in.
SAP Signavio is fundamental for organizations to drive their business transformation to the Intelligent Enterprise. A holistic business transformation is about changing the whole culture and mindset of an enterprise. It’s about redesigning business processes, and it’s about adopting new technologies – to unlock new ways of running the business and stay ahead of competitors. SAP Signavio is seamlessly embedded in the Intelligent Enterprise to support value-driven transformation from end to end. RISE with SAP is a packaged offering that contains a comprehensive, on-your-terms and on-your-timeline transformation to the Intelligent Enterprise.
