The on-demand solution is hosted entirely by SAP, thus reducing infrastructure and maintenance costs. SAP handles all new releases, IT security and backup scenarios. This gives smaller companies in particular a decisive advantage. The software allows SMEs to focus on their core business, work more efficiently and grow steadily.

The on-demand SAP Business ByDesign solution is also ideal for integrating branch offices or subsidiaries. These can be linked with the affiliate’s SAP Business Suite, which enables the efficient exchange of data and smooth real-time communication. The standardized platform also offers all users in a company the flexibility they need to collaborate successfully.

The new concept brings two worlds together. The suite offers the familiar SAP ERP processes on the one hand, while SAP is focusing on new technologies on the other. Users can expect a completely new, intuitive user interface, an SAP store with apps for extending the range of functions, and the seamless integration of smart phones and tablet computers.

The advantages of the cloud solution start with the very short implementation time. Other key benefits include clearly calculable fixed monthly costs and the elimination of in-house hardware or updates and software releases that have to be planned and carried out by a company itself. The solution also offers a high degree of data security and the option of mobile access around the clock by integrating mobile devices like smart phones and tablets.

By granting Implico AG the status of a sales and implementation partner, SAP AG has confirmed the IT consultancy’s expertise in cloud computing and Business ByDesign.
