SAP Unveils Enhanced Business ByDesign Platform

Enterprise software vendor SAP claims its latest offerings will enable companies to better deal with the intricacies of global financial reporting, among other tasks. David Needle reports.

SAP announced several enhancements to its on-demand Business ByDesign software today, following the general release earlier this month of the related Feature pack 2.6. The enterprise software giant said the more open Business ByDesign platform will let a broad ecosystem of partners bring customizations of the platform to market. Another key advance in today’s release is additional support for mobile devices.

According to SAP (NYSE: SAP), about 80 percent specific project adaptations, like adjusting the user interface, creating new reports, building forms and making adjustments to business processes, can be completed by customers without programming. For the remaining 20 percent, SAP just released a software development kit (SDK), the SAP Business ByDesign studio that’s designed to help partner companies create add-on solutions.

“We’ve taken the large enterprise features and made them available at a cost that average or emerging growth companies can take advantage of.
