Accelerated SAP S/4HANA® transformation and smart process best practices
The transformation from SAP ECC to SAP S/4HANA® is extremely challenging. Many companies therefore limit themselves to a technical migration for reasons of complexity, time, and cost, and put crucial process optimizations with a heavy heart on hold. As a consequence, the business added value of the SAP S/4HANA solution is rarely leveraged. On the other hand, this is often opposed by project costs of several millions. In order for the next generation ERP conversion to succeed in terms of more valuable business processes in the future, business users, process managers and SAP® consultants need a 360-degree view of the business processes. Thanks to state-of-the-art technology, BIC for SAP examines your SAP processes for fits, gaps and potentials and makes SAP best practices available to all project members. In the sense of a time- and cost-conscious transformation that also focuses on process optimization.
It's the combination that counts: Business Process Management pushes your SAP processes and makes the SAP S/4HANA transformation a success
Technological progress, rising customer expectations, increasing competition and a market in a constant state of flux require companies to be able to adapt and react quickly. Dynamic business processes are more important than ever. In order to keep up with the competition, companies must constantly rethink their workflows. Only those who regularly put their processes to the test, transform and improve them will be able to beat all competition and emerge as pioneers.
Since ERP processes and ERP systems represent a significant part of operational processes and have a strong influence on business operations, the need for action is particularly high here. Although SAP offers a first-class platform for the technical handling of ERP processes, SAP managers quickly reach their limits due to the missing BPM (Business Process Management) component. There is a lack of options for visualizing processes, simulating process changes, analyzing actual processes in real time, determining benchmarks and closing gaps to other IT systems.
Holistic business process transformation
along the entire SAP lifecycle
With BIC for SAP, we combine Business Process Management (BPM) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) into an end-to-end solution and give SAP users around the world a decisive competitive advantage. The BIC Platform modules (BIC Process Mining, BIC Process Design and BIC Process Execution) orchestrate the entire SAP lifecycle and pick up right where SAP leaves off. Using innovative process mining technology, you can drill down into your real process flows in the SAP software to effectively identify deviations, inefficiencies and capacity bottlenecks. Use the process data available in SAP ECC to identify your SAP best practice processes thanks to innovative features such as Process Discovery, Conformance Checking and Variant Analysis and derive concrete recommendations for your SAP S/4HANA target processes. In this way, you create the basis for a meaningful transformation that resolves current weaknesses with the highest precision.
With BIC Process Design, you can subsequently redesign your process flows (brownfield transformation) or design them from scratch (greenfield transformation). Your modeled SAP best practice processes provide information about fits and possible gaps that need to be closed during the transformation. As a result, technical requirements for SAP (requirements engineering) can be derived precisely and the risk of incorrect configurations can be significantly reduced.
BIC Process Execution takes over the process control, closes gaps to other systems such as CRM tools and enables the automation of upstream or downstream work steps via a rules engine based on no-code workflows, i.e. without any programming effort. In combination with your SAP solution, BIC offers you an innovative platform for end-to-end business process transformation. In times of change and the need for fast adaptations, BIC is the key to exploit the full innovation potential of your SAP software and to implement faster as well as better SAP processes.
