What is SAP?
ERP is at the software heart of business process management, automating many back office functions through a single database, app and UI. SAP is the world’s leading provider of ERP solutions which consist of modules customized to specific departmental functions, industries and technologies. SAP modules extend beyond the basic back-office, to middle office (CRM and SRM) and front office with digital customer-facing front ends (such as Hybris for EComm).
Whether you are a new SAP customer seeking an initial install or an existing SAP user concerned about your next module upgrade, you have no doubt heard or experienced horror stories of slow or problematic. You need a solution where experts already versed in a module’s logical department details for rapid ramp up, and get all the details right for a smooth transition in your digital transformation. SAP systems are very large and complex, and “doing it right”, “doing it on-time” and “doing it on-budget” are tough promises for a CIO to make.
Complexity increases when adding in SAP HANA Cloud (testing is more lengthy and upgrade dates may be more mandated by SAP), ensuring performance and scalability (not just functionality), switching to newer methodologies like Devops or Evergreen, optimizing use of Big Data, and integrating mobile into the solution.
