I was searching through case studies about examples of well known companies that are widely using enterprise 2.0. Getting to know SAP is using Gravity, which is a Google Wave “gadget” that can added within Google Wave client. It collaborates business process modeling functionality of SAP Business Process Management in a wave. The SAP Business Process Management is actually a netweaver component that helps customers model, execute, and monitor business process based on common process model. Using the SAP netweaver moreover compose your process steps, define business rules and exceptions.
To define more in dept what Gravity actually meant, it is a prototype developed by SAP Research in Brisbane, Australia and SAP NetWeaver Development providing real-time, cloud-based collaborative business process modeling within Google Wave. Google Wave generally is a software application that consists of real-time collaborative editing.
This is one of the snapshots that what Gravity actually does.
Talking about analytic, flexible business-oriented process modeling, and collaboration platforms makes great combination. Every business process starts with conversations, and get improved through analysis and collaboration. When company’s high levels hear about “social networking”, it sounds to them like an expensive, time-wasting alternative to the company picnic, but it’s really about just about making the existing conversations and interactions of employees quicker, easier, and more productive. The Gravity prototype is clearly a great first step in that direction.
