SAP is taking action to get mid-market All-in-One partners and customers further on board with the release of 60 best practice scenarios, a move that is also designed to reinforce its chosen position as a process specialist.
The new offerings, which comprise business processes, methodologies and documentation, consist of 23 industry and cross-industry versions, plus 37 country specific versions and include offerings for process manufacturing, consumer products and professional services.
SAP last week also released the second enhancement pack for the SAP ERP suite, which is part of its strategy to keep the core of the suite stable while providing optional add-on functionality and is designed to minimize disruption at user sites.
The pack includes improved enterprise service bundles aimed at simplifying order-to-cash processes by improving access to customer and sales order information, streamlining invoices and payments, and improving visibility for accounts-receivable representatives and cash managers.
Each of the core applications, such as Financials, HCM, ERP Operations and ERP Corporate Service has been enhanced with new functionality and the company has also added industry specific features for the retail, telco, utility and media sectors. SAP said 2800 customers are live on SAP ERP, which is its designated go to release and enables access to all NetWeaver and Enterprise Services Architecture capabilities.
