Event description

Description

This workshop will give students hands-on experience in using enterprise computer systems (e.g., SAP S/4 HANA) in a business simulation to manage a growing company – Global Bicycles Inc. – as it transforms to new digitalised business model.

A business model describes how a company is organised around value creation (and capture) processes. These business processes are controlled and supported by enterprise computer systems, which support workflows, transactions, databases and decision-making throughout the company. Hence, the architecture of a company’s business model becomes entwined with the architecture of its enterprise systems, and vice versa.

As the business environment changes, companies need to change their business models, which implies changing the supporting enterprise systems. For example, digitalisation is dramatically changing business environments as it enables new economies of scale and scope for value creation, business model innovation, and the creation of social value. Established companies need to quickly adapt their business models as new opportunities for value creation are made possible by emerging technologies. Otherwise, the company will be severely disrupted as faster moving competitors and startups become more competitive in the new environment.

This course will give students an understanding of some key issues in managing as a company undergoes business model change, and how companies can adopt new technologies to support innovative new business models.

Topics covered will include:

  • Day 1: Digital transformation – relevance; Challenges and opportunities for organizations; Skills for digital transformation
  • Day 2: SAP S/4HANA – overview; SAP S/4HANA innovations; Comparison: old and new ERP technologies
  • Day 3: SAP Business Suite 4 SAP HANA; SAP S/4HANA Enterprise Management; SAP S/4HANA line of business; SAP S/4HANA value examples
