All the Best, and Only the Best

Feature Article | July 9, 2003 by admin

Your industry chariot’s ready to roll, except you don’t have anything to put on the axles. Something that would give a smooth, easy ride would be nice. Maybe something round, so you wouldn’t have to make feet for it to walk along on. Well, you’ll just have to get the R&D team on it. Blast -– another six-months lost.
But really, you don’t have to reinvent the IT wheel. SAP and its partners have done all the design work and bundled it together in the form of industry-specific SAP Best Practices, which provides the tools, content, and methodology for the prepackaged, ready-to-use mySAP All-in-One solutions. These solutions have been developed by SAP Channel Partners to meet the specific needs of key industries in the SMB area. Both SAP Business Practices and mySAP All-in-One can be delivered to you by the very certified SAP Channel Partner- who developed them.
Because SAP and its channel partners have already identified the potential pitfalls, SAP Best Practices helps a company avoid the system, business process, and configuration mistakes of those who start from scratch. SAP Best Practices includes a fully documented implementation procedure based on a typical customer system. They deliver up-and-running e-business processes that use a company’s existing systems and data.
SAP Best Practices works as a combined sales, demonstration, training, and implementation tool for mySAP All-in-One to provide enterprises of all sizes with prepackaged business expertise. And since all project members use the same tool, communication is clear and clean.

SAP Best Practices – new and improved

SAP is currently introducing a new generation of industry-specific Best Practices to support the mySAP All-in-One methodology for SMBs. The new SAP Best Practices versions provide everything needed both to cover industry-specific business processes and to integrate and exploit the potential of mySAP Customer Relationship Management (mySAP CRM), mySAP Supply Chain Management (mySAP SCM), SAP Business Information Warehouse (SAP BW), and mySAP Supplier Relationship Management (mySAP SRM).
All the experience of SAP and its partners reside in these SAP Best Practices packages. Both new and existing customers and partners can use SAP Best Practices to get their solutions implemented on a fast and safe track. The SAP Best Practices rapid implementation technique makes it possible to reduce implementation costs to less than 50% of traditional approaches.
The revamped SAP Best Practices bundles make use of a progressive Building Block technology. Building Blocks are flexible, transparent, and reusable pieces of functionality that package all the preconfiguration, tools, and documentation needed for a SAP partner to create a new mySAP All-in-One solution or for a customer to modify an existing scenario or solution.
