If important functions for consumers, planners or purchasers are missing in SAP and if the SAP system is to be the leading system, on which the digital core is focused, there is no way around process integration. In line with the “best-of-breed” approach, it is essential to get the best out of all applications and to interconnect them – via business process integration. FUTURA@SAP ensures a synchronous data basis, a seamless document chain in SAP and at the same time overcomes many of the restrictions imposed on service procurement in SAP due to simplification.
