Peter Zencke walks us through the evolution of SAP Business ByDesign; equating early work on the mid-market SAP solution to a "concept car." It's been 4+ years of development and more than 1,000 software engineers.
He highlighted the four key points of differentiation between ByDesign and other midmarket ERP solutions:
- Ease of Use
- TCO Reduction
Zencke then showed a video of several of SAP's initial beta customers. Although the video showed four or five, it's my understanding that SAP has 20 live customers with 40+ more in pilots.
The product is designed to provide COMPLETE business process functionality from "order to cash." The functional footprint covers eight segments:
- Compliance Management
- Executive Management Support
- Financial Management
- Customer Relationship Management
- Supplier Relationship Management
- Project Management
- Supply Chain Management
- HR Management

personal analysis to foster discussion for informational purposes only.
At the time of this writing, I and/or funds I maintain discretionary
control over, did not maintain a position (long or short) in SAP. We also may, at times, carry derivative options on underlying
positions as a hedge.
