In     Introduction:

Training and Event Management component has a wide range of powerful functions to enable you to plan and manage all kinds of business events from training events to conventions simply and efficiently.

Its flexible reporting and appraisal functions provide you with important decision support feedback to ensure that the business events you offer are both high quality and effective.

Training and Event Management is an integral part of SAP HR and has interfaces to all of the relevant SAP application components, making it a basis for extending and updating your employees' skills and knowledge. Integration with Personnel Development lets you convert training proposals directly into bookings for employees with qualification deficits or needs.

The connection to the SAP Knowledge Warehouse gives you direct access from the Training and Event Management application and its self-service applications to a variety of training materials (self-teach materials and so on).

Training and Event Management contains an extensive range of functions that are user-friendly and intuitive. The application's graphical user interface greatly facilitates navigation and operation of the system.

Business Processes:

Training and Event Management lets you offer self-service access to the most important day-to-day functions of the application. It can offer your employees and other Web users access to these applications via the corporate intranet as Employee Self-Services and as Internet applications on the Internet. The applications are presented in an intuitive and easy-to-use format.

  • Training and Event Management has two Employee Self-Service features that complement one another:

Training Center: where employees can view the current event catalog and book themselves for events.

My Bookings: where employees can view their own booking data and, if necessary, rebook or cancel their bookings.

Employees can fill a shopping basket with events and save it for later editing

  • ESS can be used in conjunction with approval workflows especially developed for them.

Training Center

Employees can display the company’s current business event catalog & select a subject area on the search screen. The Extended Search function offers additional selection options, such as selection by target group. The hit list of events displays the most important data of the business event. Then click the Internet icons beside event types and event dates to display relevant documents, materials and so on that are linked to them via the Knowledge Link Info type

E   ESS My Bookings:

This ESS application lets employees display their current booking data for all of their booking operations (bookings, cancellations, or rebooking). From the list display, the employee can rebook or cancel bookings or submit requests to do so via the approval workflows).

Employees can fill a shopping basket and save it for later editing. The events in the shopping basket can be booked or removed from the basket again.

Example of Workflow Support for ESS: Approval Workflow for Bookings

      The system initiates the workflows when an employee, who does not have the required authorization to book, cancel, or rebook him- or herself, tries to execute one of these functions in ESS. The employee receives a message that the relevant request has been submitted to his or her supervisor. The supervisor receives the request as a work item in the workflow inbox. If the supervisor approves the request, the system executes the requested function automatically. If the supervisor rejects the request, the operation is deleted.
