Improve and Transform your Business Processes 


Companies have had to develop new business models to avoid disruption, gain efficiencies to drive innovation, and transform mission-critical systems with reduced business risk. The next wave of business digitization requires a conscious and direct approach to investment and innovation.


As a component of the RISE with SAP offering, SAP Signavio supports organizations in integrating business processes, people, systems, and data to create business value while simultaneously mitigating risk and speeding up transformation initiatives.


Leveraging the power of the RISE with SAP solution on Microsoft Azure can help your business to become an intelligent, sustainable enterprise in the cloud. Microsoft will share how large language model AI tools shape our business software today. A short glimpse to joint work between Microsoft and SAP.


Ever wondered what's in it for you? How all this can help your business transformation? To give you more insight, you will hear how our customers are succeeding with RISE with SAP. Konecranes will talk about continuous business process improvement. You will also learn how Tuomi Logistiikka implemented modern cloud ERP in record time with Tiera, Fujitsu and SAP.


Spend an inspiring afternoon with us and connect with your peers in-person at this customer event on Wednesday September 20 at Microsoft, Keilalahdentie 2-4, 02150 Espoo.
