How does your First Day with SAP Signavio Process Insights look like?


SAP Signavio Process Insights is a plug-and-play solution. Once you've set up the connection between your SAP ECC, SAP S/4HANA, or SAP Ariba system(s)* and SAP Signavio Process Insights (running on SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP)), data collection will start, and you can start analyzing your business processes.

As soon as your contract starts, your IT contact stated in your contract will get e-mails including the information required to start the connection. The system connection can be established in less than one hour as soon as the ERP side's technical prerequisites are met. Results are available for analysis in SAP Signavio Process Insights within 24 hours.



Please find all the necessary onboarding information in the SAP Help Portal.



As soon as your data is available in SAP Signavio Process Insights, you may want to start by simply getting a first overview of the process performance in your ERP systems. You can do this without having a clear use case in mind, for example by

  • looking at those process flows that have a particularly high number of blockers displayed on the start screen. These indicate issues within a certain process that can be further analyzed.

  • entering certain E2E processes and filtering to the organizational unit you are interested in.


We want to encourage you to use your first day and get familiar with the product. Which first insights were you able to retrieve on your first day? Let us know your comments down below.
