SAP Business ByDesign for SMEs

An affordable, extensible solution

Back in June 2016, Barry Padgett, president of SAP’s small business efforts said, “For us not to be known for providing quality SMB solutions is tragic.” Knowing what had to be done, Padgett and SAP committed a 50 percent increase in engineers and development over a 9-month period. As a result, that tragedy was turned into a success story with developments to SAP Business ByDesign, an affordable solution for SMEs.

SAP Business ByDesign is aimed at companies in the mid-market (250-1,500 employees) and is building native integrations with such SAP assets as Ariba, Concur and SuccessFactors. It promises to be a good mix of convenience and extensibility.

Ranier Zinow, senior VP of solution strategy for Business ByDesign, frames the appeal for the extensible solution as stemming from its being a full suite that includes financials, HR, CRM and supply chain management, and more. He further says that the more than 500 business objects it has available function like Lego bricks, allowing for customization that suits customers’ particular needs. There are also tools that allow companies to make general ledger adjustments or meet accounting requirements for various locales without programming.
