SAP
It is well suited when we need to integrate business processes with SAP ERP and SAP CRM - the solution can be integrated with business rules/procedures defined in SAP ERP/CRM and NetWeaver can be used to monitor the rules and flag off exceptions. When there are multiple workflows running, it tends to slow down running of these processes. Also, it entirely depends on SAP portal for it to run efficiently.

TIBCO Cloud Nimbus is a business app for process documentation. It gives visualization of how people, processes and systems should interact. People from your organization can generate diagrams and how things should be processed. Good for technical and IT people to draw up diagrams so they know what they can follow for their IT process. Good for big IT teams. Could be little complex for some people. Might not feed everyone's needs but it's helpful for IT teams that want to document and diagram their technical work. You can create a step-by-step workflow management for tech people and also have non technical people follow the diagrams. It takes some time but you get the hang of it sooner or later.

Pros
SAP
  • Virtual paper trail. Iterations of process and current documentation are all stored as "artifacts", leaving a great trail.
  • Configuration of users. BPM somewhat magically determines which users will be impacted and automates rules.
  • A pro (that is also a con) is the design interface. If you know what you are doing, it is incredibly powerful and malleable.

We have our own tech support for systems, I would say they probably could use more training on it, I don't really think it's anything regarding the SAP system, but more the knowledge they have on the system itself. It seems to take longer for them to fix any issues we may come across.

I found the initial setup of NetWeaver is much simpler than other products especially in an SAP environment where we have SAP ERP/HRM/CRM as it can be well integrated with other SAP products. The only drawback is the need/dependency on SAP Portal. It is better suited in an environment where SAP ERP is running.

  • Helped us harness integrated benefit from having SAP ERP/CRM by leveraging NetWeaver to define business processes/rules and monitor exceptions
  • Did not have any negative experience except for the fact that at times when multiple rules run, it can be somewhat slow
