As you transform your business or implement new business-critical technologies such as SAP® S/4HANA, defining and adapting your business processes is essential - but not enough. You need to ensure that all employees who are involved in changed/transformed processes are aware of how they should conduct business in the future. For this to happen successfully, they must be properly trained.

ARIS is the leading tool for process design, approval and publication and supports the entire process lifecycle from strategy definition, blueprinting and testing to communication and end-user training. SAP Enable Now is the leading tool for designing, approving, and publishing training and supports corporate learning (rollout & change management) as well as the creation and delivery of e-learning and user documentation.

Together, ARIS and SAP Enable Now offer a complete and integrated solution in the following areas: Better training and communication of processes and system processes to end users and support for their needs!

Regardless of whether business processes have been changed, are completely new, or you are hiring new employees that should work with them, appropriate training is essential.

ARIS is your tool of choice        

ARIS supports you in gathering and managing your technical and business requirements for the transformation and implementation of new business processes, e.g. during the migration from SAP ECC to S/4HANA. On this basis, ARIS supports you with first-class modeling capabilities for the design and blueprinting of your processes and provides governance that means having them approved by the right people. Thanks to ARIS Test Designer, you can generate process-oriented test cases, so that your application tests follow the actual end-to-end scenarios and you are not just testing functional silos.

Once you have successfully designed, implemented, and tested your processes, it's time to introduce them to your employees and get them up and running as soon as it is required.

This is where the integration between ARIS and SAP Enable Now comes in:

1. Synchronize your process structure from ARIS to SAP Enable Now

Thanks to our direct API integration between both tools, manual file export and import is not required. Your process structure is smoothly synchronized and covers all relevant ARIS model types - even if you use derived model types in your projects.

2. Creating and adding training content

Based on the imported structure, authors can generate various training assets and easily assign them to the process structure - from higher-level value-added chain steps to detailed process steps and system transactions. By transferring process diagrams as an image, they can also be reused in training assets. For customers who use SAP Solution Manager: SAP Enable Now indicates from which hierarchy level elements of the business process structure originate from. And not only that, SAP Enable Now provides a change management filter to easily identify new or changed processes after synchronization.

3. Synchronize training content with ARIS again

The enablement content remains in SAP Enable Now. By synchronizing the corresponding links, you can access these contents directly from ARIS. This eliminates the need for duplicating efforts and the content always remains up to date.

4. Introduction of business processes including training documents

Leverage ARIS' world-class rollout and communication capabilities to ensure your entire workforce knows your processes and has the right training materials.

 

The first beta customers have already validated the new integration benefits:

 

“The CONA team wanted their training groups to be able to design new training content that was more closely aligned to the way the business processes were designed and already approved by the respective business departments. By tightly integrating the two technologies CONA will be able to ensure that the training resources created in SAP Enable Now align to the business processes outlined in ARIS.”
