A few weeks ago I attended a two day SAP workshop about new features in SAP Cloud Platform Integration (CPI). In the two day workshop a small group of customers and partners were able to get first hand insight in new innovations in CPI. We also had the opportunity to discuss with SAP Product Management these innovations and deliver input on how we users are using CPI, what is good about it and where we would like to see improvements.

Data is becoming ever increasingly abundant. Last year, the International Data Corporation (IDC) published their Digital Universe estimate for the amount of data created in the world. For 2025, they forecasts a whopping 180 Zettabytes of data to be created annually, jumping from just 44 Zettabytes to be created in 2020 . More strikingly, the IoT data that is analyzed and used to change business processes in 2025 will be as big as all the data created in 2020.

In the new era of information and innovation, organisations have to rethink the way they operate. The last decades businesses have been focusing on continuous improvement and standardisation of processes. Especially the results in process standardisation efforts are in most cases rather poor because most organisations have limited awareness of the fact that roughly 80% of the processes are non-differentiating, in other words even after standardisation too much unnecessary specialisation remains in place. A side effect of focusing on continuous improvement is a limited focus on innovation and thus underestimation of the disruption that innovation brings to their business.

Over the years, various performance improvement techniques and methods have been introduced, like Lean and Six Sigma. A disadvantage within these traditional optimisation methods is that performing the corresponding analyses often lays a heavy burden on the organization, and often - unintentionally – is delivered as a one-off. The data is collected in samples and results are often poorly reproducible and are difficult to structurally embed when returning to the order of the day. The rise of a field like Data Science is a driver to increase the quality and lead time of these kind of insights.

As a User Experience (UX) designer, I’m often contacted by our customers to help them out with an app that has poor user adaptation. Often such an app, or any solution of that matter, is being perceived as not user-friendly or, even worse, as not very useful. So what steps can you take to become more user-centered when developing an app?

Are you, or those around you, suffering from burnout at work? If so, you aren’t alone. In the Netherlands alone, 13% of employees report burnout and 35% report work-related stress as the primary reason for leaving a company. And when looking at these numbers on an international scale, the problem only intensifies. So what can you do to improve your work-life balance? 


Have you experienced that performance improvement programs have fallen short of your expectations and that the cost of these programs didn’t live up to the returns, or even led to interruptions in running operations? Or have you seen that, despite costly compliance, projects you still fail to meet external regulation requirements? Well, lucky for you, SAP Process Mining provides a solution to overcome such ailments.
