Hi Stephan, can you briefly introduce yourself?
Of course. I’m Stephan Albrecht, Chief Consultant at SAP Germany, with over 25 years of experience in the field. Since 2010, I’ve been driving the geographical enablement of SAP, aiming to enhance the usability of SAP applications across various industries and process areas.
On March 5th, you are going to speak at the SAP GIS event. Can you give us a quick preview?
Certainly. During my presentation, I’ll delve into the compelling reasons behind the geo-enablement of SAP, particularly its significance for certain industries and business processes. I’ll showcase real-world use cases of the SAP Geo Framework in action through a live demo system and share examples from our customers. Additionally, I’ll touch upon the critical aspect of asset lifecycle definitions and how SAP ensures data consistency between a geo-enabled SAP ERP and an Esri Enterprise GIS.
What makes you so excited about the integration between SAP and GIS?
The integration between SAP and Esri GIS platforms is truly exhilarating due to the sheer power each platform brings to the table. By seamlessly incorporating the world of maps into SAP, we significantly enhance business processes within SAP, making them more efficient and user-friendly.
What is the added value of SAP and GIS integration for organizations?
The added value is substantial. Firstly, organizations benefit from re-using data and services from both platforms, leading to fewer interfaces and smoother operations. Secondly, this integration results in improved business processes and enhanced data quality, ultimately driving better decision-making and operational efficiency.
