SAP Unveils Next Wave of On-Demand Solutions

By Raju Shanbhag, TMCnet Contributor

SAP has introduced a new class of on-demand software solutions at an industry event that will be integrated into SAP Business Suite software.

SAP (News - Alert) Business Suite enables companies to perform essential, industry-specific, and business-support processes with modular solutions that are designed to work with other SAP and non-SAP software.

All through 2011, more offerings serving the specific needs of users in lines of business will be made, the company has announced. By helping people control expenses, gain visibility into travel spend and meet regulatory requirements, one solution will be focused on optimizing expense management. Another solution will assist human capital management professionals in supporting employee performance management, employee development and career planning.

“Customer co-innovation, together with agile development practices, allows SAP to develop more quickly and with greater certainty that we are meeting real customer business requirements," said John Wookey, executive vice president, Line of Business On Demand, SAP. "This is particularly important as we seek to address this new business area, in which every person, however involved in supporting and meeting sales and business objectives, is our intended user.”

SAP Sales OnDemand and SAP Sourcing OnDemand are among the planned line-up of new line-of-business on-demand solutions SAP is planning to introduce. Offering sales professionals easy and effective ways to collaborate with teams on opportunities, manage customer information in a smarter way and communicate effectively with people in their networks, SAP Sales OnDemand is designed for sales professionals. Apart from helping them to gain accurate insight into sales performance, it helps them access relevant and real-time knowledge and resources.

Recently, the company updated its data-analysis software will work to enhance its customer base, as well as increase revenue. SAP is now shipping selected customers the most recent version of its programs from BusinessObjects, the fourth edition. The company bought it for an astounding $6.8 billion in 2008. The new, more advanced program will be available to the public starting in May.
