Course informationCourse Summary

New business networks are changing the game for businesses and consumers in the digital economy. To keep up with the demands and expectations of consumers and business buyers, companies must connect, interact, and integrate on previously unknown and unexpected levels. SAP’s business network group addresses precisely that demand, using cloud-based solutions that deliver connectivity, efficiency, affordability, and a great user experience on any device, any time.

Ariba, Concur, and Fieldglass – the three companies that make up SAP’s Business Network Group – look beyond the four walls of a business to integrate and connect systems, services, partners, and data to create more efficient, more powerful, and far simpler means of managing key business functions. They provide the outcome and experience business users need via seamless platforms.

In this course, we’ll learn more about the Business Network Group and the three companies that comprise it.
