Gazing into the future: SAP products for 2011 (photo: Fotolia)
We don’t need to look into a crystal ball to find out which new SAP products are slated to appear in 2011. We all know that major trade fairs and exhibitions such as CeBIT, SAPPHIRE, and SAP TechEd provide us with information about planned releases. But the smaller events shouldn’t be underestimated, either. For example, Peter Lorenz, executive vice president of Small and Midsize Enterprises (SME) at SAP, not only demonstrated SAP Business ByDesign on the iPhone to a select audience, but also presented a road map for software for the midmarket.
From enterprise content management systems and ERP software, through customer relationship management and on-demand solutions: Read on to find out what awaits you in 2011.

SAP introduced its enhancement packages to take the place of expensive upgrades. Enhancement package 5 for SAP ERP 6.0 was scheduled to appear in 2010, but its launch was delayed. As SAP Co-CEO Jim Hagemann Snabe stressed at the DSAG Annual Congress 2010, good quality is more important than getting a product to market hastily. It remains to be seen whether and when enhancement package 5 will become available for all customers in 2011. It is currently in the ramp-up phase and being tested by a small number of users.
Enhancement package 5 offers numerous business intelligence functions and supports compliance regulations as well as Apple’s Safari browser. Also integrated are SAP NetWeaver Business Client 3.0 and Web Dynpro ABAP Page Builder, which can be used to develop user interfaces. What’s more, enhancement package 5 offers additional functions for the manufacturing industry.
