SAP Customers: Don’t Stay on the Sidelines Waiting to Enter the Automation Game

I’ve heard dozens of Fortune 500 executives over the last 12 months extol the virtues of process automation, only to then admit that their organizations have not actually started down the automation path. The benefits are obvious: massive productivity gains in mega processes like Order to Cash and Procure to Pay can lead to tens of millions of dollars in savings in annual operating expenses. So why the hesitation? The most commonly cited reason has been that their organizations have pending migrations of SAP ECC to S4/HANA. These executives fear that beginning an automation initiative now is pointless because their [...]

For those of you old enough to remember grade school dodgeball, you might recall the very uncomfortable process of selecting teams. There had to be someone who was picked last.
