SAP Business Suite Overview

What is SAP Business Suite?
SAP Business Suite software comprises a set of fully integrated applications such as SAP ERP, SAP CRM, SAP SCM, and SAP SRM that enable enterprises to run their core business operations. It provides end-to-end process support for areas such as customer engagement, finance, human resources, manufacturing, procurement, logistics, and IT management. With SAP HANA, SAP offers full in-memory platform in the cloud. SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA not only brings together transactions and analytics on a single in-memory platform; it completely redefines the concept of real time (which the 'R' in R/1, R/2 and R/3 has always stood for). It enables business processes be re-thought, drives real-time business transformation, and generates customer value both for business and IT.

There is hardly any customization required for it, if implemented correctly. The UI needs improvement.

What is our primary use case?

Complete suite and it works. Good thing about SAP is the product is mature and has the talent to support it. No other vendors, like Oracle, Sage, or Microsoft, have the maturity of the solution or they require too much customization.

Pros and Cons

  • "FICO, especially newGL. It solves a lot of manual consolidation issues."
  • "There is hardly any customization required for SAP, if you implement it correctly. ​​"
  • "The UI: To train one user on SAP ECC takes at least two weeks."

SAP is configured to meet your business requirements but provides standard practices and processes that in most instances should be able to be utilized

What other advice do I have?

Look to People and Process, don’t change the system, use much standard as possible and only modify if there is a competitive advantage to it as it will cost in the long run. Do your research, understand what you are getting into and hire expertise and train internally, there is an enormous change management impact to the organisation

The solution has enabled us to improve process and stocks control, planning and decision making.

What other advice do I have?

It depends what you are looking for. The questions should be: * Why do we want an ERP solution? * What are the issues we want to address? Costs vs benefits should be taken into consideration.
