What is SAP Business ByDesign?
SAP Business ByDesign is the most complete, fully integrated business management solution delivered on demand. It is a core part of the SAP on-demand portfolio and strategy and has been generally available since 2007. The solution is specifically designed to address the needs of growing midsize companies by providing the functional depth of a large scale business management solution without the need for a large IT infrastructure or staff. It enables companies to implement preconfigured business processes to solve immediate problems and to benefit from an affordable solution at fixed and predictable price.
Delivered through a single user interface, SAP Business ByDesign is a complete integrated suite for managing financials, customer relationships, human resources, projects, procurement, and supply chain and includes embedded analytics and reporting. The solution enables implementation of the entire suite or adopt only the particular functions that are needed to address current business requirements (starter packages are currently available for CRM opportunity management, professional services and core ERP) and add incremental functionality later.
With the latest release large enterprises running SAP® Business Suite software in their headquarters have shown strong interest in equipping their subsidiaries with SAP Business ByDesign to provide integration between headquarters and subsidiary partners.
