SAP to upgrade its business suite software

Aims to deliver incremental updates without interrupting customers' business, says the company

By CBR Staff Writer

SAP has said it will updrade its business suite software to allow the delivery of incremental updates without interrupting customers’ business, driven by business needs, not technical requirements.

The SAP Business Suite software upgrades will include new user experiences for professional and casual users, such as landing pages and side panels with integrated analytics.

SAP will upgrade its Supply Network Collaboration (SAP SNC) application to improve analysis of suppliers’ performance and drive increased adoption within a partner ecosystem.

In another upgrade, a new user interface (UI) will be developed which the company says will allow users to compile target groups for marketing campaigns from multiple high-volume data sources.

The company is planning to introduce a new UI into SAP Enterprise Asset Management (SAP EAM) offering to enable maintenance workers to carry out their daily tasks more easily and efficiently.

SAP Travel Management application is also planned to simplify receipt management and accelerate reimbursement processes for business travelers.

In addition, the company will provide side panels with contextual information, such as notes, attachments, analytical and Web content, in order to improve the user experience for professional finance users.

With enhancements to batch handling, cost planning, and label printing in SAP ERP, manufacturers will gain the ability to increase their operational efficiency in production, said the company.

SAP AG Line of Business Solutions general manager and head Peter Maier said SAP customers change and evolve their business models for sustainable growth.

"Better and more flexible software solutions are critical to stay competitive. The innovations we outline today do not disrupt our customers’ business with big upgrades, and give them the tools they need to run better in an ever-changing global market," said Maier.
