SAP® Enterprise SOA
SAP® Enterprise SOA is a software architecture which can be provided and used as services by means of regulation, defined processes and framework application. The particular demands of the service user determine in which granularity the service will be published.
SAP has been providing its customers with Enterprise Services since ERP2005. Seen technologically, these are web services; however, they harness the semantics of business and are based on a harmonised data model. Enterprise Services are the core components for the construction of a service-oriented application. The availability of Enterprise Services, the Enterprise Service Repository and other structural components as integral platform elements allows SAP NetWeaver to evolve into a Business Process Platform, which serves as the central integration platform for customers and forms the basis of all company software components.

SAP® Business Workflow & Guided Procedures
SAP® Business Workflow & Guided Procedures support business processes that are not yet in the ERP system can be defined in a simple way with SAP Business Workflow. These can simply be release or approval processes, but also more complex business processes such as the layout of a material master and the related coordination of the participating departments. SAP Business Workflow can be particularly efficient when applied where workflows have to be continually repeated, or where an inheritance process requires a large amount of workers in a clearly defined sequence.
SAP Business Workflow can also be used to react to errors and exceptional situations in other existing business processes.
SAP makes available numerous workflows which map predefined business processes. These workflows can be implemented without major effort.
