11 Great Features in SAP Business ByDesign

When you think of a Cloud-based ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system - are you thinking complete business software suite?

Built in analytics

SAP Business ByDesign comes with built in business analytics powered by Hana. Usually with ERP products you need to buy separate product for analytics.

Built with using SAP ECC experience

This one is kind of hard to explain but after a while you start to feel that same people have built it who has built ECC. This means that there are many similarities, but they have also taken the experience and made Business ByDesign better and more convenient.


Business ByDesign comes with great built in workflow automation. You can assign tasks to other people and configure the system so everyone receives work assignments automatically.  If you create a service order the service worker will get notification on their screen and know what to do.

Sourcing process

Sourcing process is by far the best I have seen in Business ByDesign. You want to buy something, you ask suppliers for quotes, compare the quotes, ask for new quotes, accept the quote etc. Everything works well and is easy to use.

API’s and web services

There are 273 Web services available. This means that almost everything in Business ByDesign is accessible from outside Business ByDesign and you can also send back data or call out Business ByDesign functions.

Integration scenarios

There are 70 integration scenarios available. They include scenarios for integration SAP Business ByDesign with third party applications, on-premise applications etc. For example, you can integrate SAP Business ByDesign out-of-box with payroll system, e-commerce solutions, point-of-sale applications, engineering applications etc.
