When deploying SAP Rapid Deployment Solutions, you have a best-practice configuration already available. Instead of starting from scratch, you merely need to adapt the parts of the configuration you want to tailor to your individual requirements. Using Rapid Deployment Solutions helps you to predict the effort to deploy ERP system modules more accurately and minimizes the risk of exploding costs. Hereby, SAP Solution Manager serves as the central tool for configuring, deploying and monitoring the SAP Rapid Deployment Solutions.
When adjusting the configuration, however, one challenge remains – the business domain experts who need to define the configuration requirements typically can’t express these requirements in ‘SAP speak’.
Signavio for SAP Solution Manager solves this problem by establishing a link between BPMN and SAP-specific terms. The Signavio SAP Solution Manager Connector can transfer Solution Manager’s Business Blueprint Projects as BPMN process hierarchies to Signavio, and vice versa.
This allows you to seize the collaborative power of Signavio to get domain experts, business analysts, and SAP IT specialists to design business processes together. Business user involvement is crucial to facilitate user acceptance and to prevent SAP from running processes that don’t represent reality.
The Capabilities’ relations to your IT system landscape can be expressed in, an open standard notation specifically designed to model enterprise architectures.

In SAP Solution Manager, you can continuously monitor and analyze the processes. After the next optimization round, you can synchronize SAP Solution Manager with your Signavio workspace in no time.
Of course, it is also possible to start documenting and improving your SAP processes with Signavio if you already have an SAP ERP infrastructure configured and running. In this case you can create new Business Blueprint Projects in SAP Solution Manager and follow the steps as described above. This helps you to further optimize your processes, especially by involving business process participants that traditionally were too detached from your enterprise systems operations to provide feedback.
By combining Signavio’s unique capabilities for collaborative process design with the power of SAP’s enterprise applications, you can get your processes running smoothly and avoid unnecessary overhead, miscommunication and frustration among your employees.
