Course information

Course Summary

Transforming from heavily customized on-premise systems to a modern cloud environment can now be significantly accelerated with the SAP Signavio plug and gain approach. With this new approach, customers receive granular insights into the execution of their current ERP processes, which can be (re-)designed, harmonized, and improved in their SAP S/4HANA applications. With plug and gain, customers can reduce the time needed to thoroughly prepare their transformation from months to just hours, improve the deployment quality, and provide benefits to the business.

In this course, you’ll be equipped with all relevant facts and demos to ensure that you can leverage plug and gain in any transformation.
