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.

I like working at abat because there is a very pleasant, appreciative working atmosphere here with a lot of freedom. There is a lot of trust, so you also have the freedom to try out something new - but if it doesn't work out, there is also the necessary support. That's how I've learned so much! In addition, if you have problems while working in the home office, you can often quickly find colleagues who are happy to help you out via teams.

WORK-LIFE-BALANCE is very important at abat. Thanks to flexible working hours and a great team, you can combine work and university very well.


Student apprentice

Despite the professionalism that abat AG displays to the outside world, it became clear to me during my first few days that this does not have to be a contradiction to fun, friendliness and relaxed interaction among colleagues. The flat hierarchies ensured that I felt comfortable as an intern and like a full member of the team right from the start.
