datango LXP vs. SAP Enable Now© / WPB© - the better alternative

SAP is undoubtedly a leading business software solution in numerous industries. However, in order to make the most of SAP's extensive features, appropriate training is essential. Although SAP offers the in-house solution SAP® Systems Enable Now® (SEN) for this purpose, we believe that datango offers the better alternative here.

So in this blog post, we'll take a closer look at datango's advantages over SEN and why datango is the ideal choice to enhance your SAP knowledge and ensure your company's progress.

Keeping pace in the dynamic digital world

To succeed in a fast-paced and competitive environment, companies need a comprehensive and targeted digitization strategy that enables them to keep pace with the latest technologies and trends. An important component of this strategy is the continuous training of employees across different generations as well as the holistic support of processes, especially during internal change cycles. After all, only when employees can accept and use the new digital tools and processes can the full potential of digitization be realized.

In the course of this digital transformation, enterprise software solutions such as SAP play a decisive role. This is an enterprise resource planning system (ERP) that offers companies a comprehensive range of modules and functions to plan, control, and manage personnel, resources, capital, equipment, materials, and information and communications technology in a timely manner and in line with the company's purpose.

A key component of the successful implementation of SAP software in companies is the employees. It is crucial that acceptance of the change is high and that the new tools are not perceived as a disruption, but as a necessary step for innovation and greater customer satisfaction.

The decisive factor here is that they feel "desire for" rather than "frustration by" the software. Another important aspect is the time needed for the "change" before operations return to normal. The key factor in achieving these goals is SAP training in e-learning format. They enable employees to develop a deeper understanding of SAP's functionality and fully utilize it in a short period of time. Through targeted training programs, companies can thus ensure that their employees have the necessary know-how and promptly ensure smooth operation and successful implementation. E-learning software should be capable of "workplace learning" to ensure parallel working. The support options should be as individual as the users. When introducing such extensive systems, special consideration must be given to ensuring that process documentation on the authoring side can be created simply, easily and quickly.

SAP® Systems Enable Now & Workforce Performance Builder - What's behind it?

"SAP® Systems Enable Now® (SEN)" refers to a software solution from SAP itself that helps companies create and deliver training and learning content for their SAP systems. SEN enables users to create interactive training materials, online help, and documentation to improve training effectiveness and increase user competency.

Workforce Performance Builder (WPB) was the original name of the software before it was renamed SAP® Enable Now. WPB offered similar functionality to SEN and was consequently used by organizations to create and manage custom training content. The renaming to SAP® Enable Now was done to highlight the tight integration with other SAP products and solutions.

Both programs thus aim to optimize employee training and development, helping companies to acquire the knowledge and skills needed to use SAP solutions effectively and improve workflows.

But did you know that both programs are further developments based on code that SAP acquired from datango AG in 2012?

In the process, our software solution has been newly developed since 2016 and is therefore adapted to the increased complexity of today's applications.

In addition to the modern code, the entire datango product range is characterized above all by improved performance, a contemporary user interface and numerous additional functions.
