Your SAP Hand in Hand with SharePoint & O365

Isolation and
Information Silos

  • Business critical documents and information are only available in SAP to SAP users.
    – Likewise, users who work in SAP all day have no direct access to non-SAP documents
    – The result: users scramble to put together the information they need to conduct their daily business.
    – Where is it? SAP? Other LOB applications? Outlook? File server? Paper?
  • Ad-hoc, simple collaboration at a document level isn’t available.
  • Business processes are interrupted because users have to switch between applications.
  • Business critical documents and information are only available in SAP to SAP users.

How do I make SAP part of my digital transformation strategy?

  • You have a world-class ERP system in place. It is critical to your organisation. But how do you ensure that you can integrate SAP into an organisation-wide digital transformation and automation strategy?
  • Challenge is even greater when SAP is partially implemented (SAP FI/CO + other LOB applications).
  • You need to ensure compliance needs for your business documents are met.
  • You need to ensure high level of usability for transformation strategy to be successful.
  • How do you bring unstructured information from various sources in to the context of structured data in SAP?
