SAP AG on Wednesday unveiled packages of preconfigured software and services that cover 28 business processes for midsize companies in a variety of industries.
Called SAP Best Practices, the offerings cover businesses in industries ranging from retail and utilities to the public sector. The latest offerings include new software tools designed to help achieve faster implementation, while providing flexibility, the German software maker said.
The packages are geared toward providing key business processes "out of the box," SAP officials said. Industry-specific scenarios covered include warranty processing with returnable parts for the automotive industry and prototype development for the high-tech industry.
Cross-industry areas covered include campaign management, engineer-to-order and supply-chain-performance management. Packages also are available for business intelligence and building enterprise portals.
“With these new versions of SAP Best Practices, we continue to address the distinct industry requirements and unique business characteristics of midsize enterprises,” Robert Viehmann, vice president for global mySAP all-in-one development, said in a statement.
An overview of all industry- and cross industry-packages, as well as language versions, are available on the SAP Best Practices Web site.
