To provide independent companies and subsidiaries worldwide a flexible, cost-effective mid-market cloud enterprise resource planning (ERP) suite, SAP AG has announced new capabilities for the SAP Business ByDesign solution. The updates leverage SAP HANA, mobile and cloud technology, and enable businesses to rapidly adapt processes to capitalize on ever-changing market dynamics.
“We continue to honor our commitment to SAP Business ByDesign customers and leverage the strength of the SAP Cloud portfolio and SAP HANA to deliver innovations that help them run efficiently and effectively their entire business in the cloud,” said Darren Rushworth, managing director of SAP Vietnam, Philippines and emerging markets. “The new capabilities in the latest release help companies manage more data and transactions in more places with greater speed and simplicity.”
Features and enhancements delivered in the latest release of SAP Business ByDesign include: expanded global footprint, with the new country version for Japan augmenting existing Asia Pacific regional versions for China, India, Australia and New Zealand; in-memory capabilities with the availability on the SAP HANA platform combines both transaction processing and analytics on a single platform, thereby helping reduce delays and inefficiencies inherent in parallel operational and business intelligence systems, and enabling companies to aggregate, correlate and assess countless bits of information and scenarios to determine the best course of action faster than ever before; enhanced pricing flexibility; and greater mobility.
“As an SAP partner and consultant, we practice what we preach — we are running the latest version of SAP Business ByDesign on SAP HANA and have seen the solution’s impact to streamline business processes,” said Rushworth. “We like the speed, flexibility, scalability and support from SAP HANA. Continued updates allow us to take advantage of business best practices and rapid processing speed in the cloud.”
