SAP Extends Innovation with New Release of SAP Business ByDesign

SAP Cloud SoftwareWALLDORF, Germany -- Reaffirming its commitment to provide independent companies and subsidiaries worldwide a flexible, cost-effective mid-market cloud enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, SAP recently 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 companies run their entire business more efficiently and more effectively in the cloud," said David Sweetman, senior director, Global Product Marketing, SAP Business ByDesign. "The new capabilities in the latest release help companies manage more data and transactions in more places with greater speed, flexibility, and simplicity."

Features and enhancements delivered in the latest release of SAP Business ByDesign include:

  • Expanded global footprint:  New country version for Japan augments existing Asia Pacific regional versions for China, India, Australia, and New Zealand
  • In-memory capabilities: Availability on the SAP HANA platform combines both transaction processing and analytics on a single platform, helping reduce delays and inefficiencies inherent in parallel operational and business intelligence (BI) systems, and enabling companies to aggregate, correlate and assess countless bits of information and scenarios, enabling users and executives to make better informed, more timely decisions.
  • Enhanced pricing flexibility:  The SAP Business in Focus mobile app enables users to analyze budget forecasts, visualize financial information, collaborate through an enterprise social network and get real-time insight from internal and external applications via Apple's iPad and Android-enabled tablets.
"As SAP's #1 Global Partner for SAP Business ByDesign, we make our cake and eat it to," said Grant Fraser, president & CEO of Navigator.  "Or in other words, we leverage the best business practices inherent in SAP and combine that with the enhanced HANA powered Business ByDesign solution, to improve and streamline operations as well as better serve our rapidly growing install base."
SAP Business ByDesign covers a very broad range of business areas including financials, human resource management (HRM), sales, marketing, sourcing, purchasing, customer relationship managment (CRM), and supply chain management (SCM).  SAP Business ByDesign is and always will be an integral part of the SAP cloud portfolio.
