We use it for SAP projects and it works well with SAP products and use it mainly to automate procedures and avoid manual process/procedure where possible and can be integrated with ERP/CRM. It helps orchestrate the business processes very well and integrate them.
  • Integrated well with SAP ERP/CRM
  • Comes with adequate tools that help define business rules/processes and also monitoring them and managing exceptions
  • Strong dependency with SAP portal is a drawback as it means that one needs to have SAP portal implemented
  • When there are certain workflows that run for a lengthy period of time, running more workflows can become slower
  • Strong SAP skills required
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.

SAP BPM is used across the entire organization. With multiple process flows that span dozens of business lines, it was critical to find a tool that can streamline the workflow process,
  • 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.
  • A con (which was also a pro) is the design interfac.e. It will require someone with heavy technical knowledge of SAP to train others on the tool.
  • The built-in rigidity of SAP systems in general. Yes, SAP is meant to be a rigid ERP tool, but some flexibility it user role assignments would be nice.
If your organization is heavily invested in SAP as an enterprise wide solution already, BPM is really your only option. Solid, seamless integration, smooth workflow, and data trails for business analysis are impeccable. If you aren't already heavily invested, key questions to ask would be - Am I using too big a hammer? The results are impressive, no doubt, but the integration of BPM is demanding. A less-demanding, more intutive tool like Winshuttle or even AR Projekt that hooks in to SAP might be a simpler option.
