At a day’s programme dubbed “SAP Ghana world Tour 2010” in Accra Noble Ekajeh, Regional Manager of Systems Applications Programme (SAP), said the global business landscape had changed and companies, which failed to deploy the right technologies and software’s to grow their businesses would lag behind.
He said the changes required businesses, especially Small and Medium Size Enterprises (SMEs), to adjust quickly to changing market conditions and lay a strong foundation for growth.
SAP, Mr Ekajeh said had developed comprehensive softwares to assist companies to get the maximum returns on their investments.
Among the solutions are ‘mySAP Enteprise Business Suite’ targeted at large businesses, mySAP All-In-One targeted at sophisticated SME, and SAP BusinessOne as some of its products targeted at advanced SMEs.
“SAP BusinessOne is designed for advanced SMEs, competitively priced, flexible yet full-featured and can be implemented in record time because of available rapid implementation tools,” he said.
SAP Business Suite software, he explained was designed for large organisations and international corporations to support their core business operations ranging from supplier relationships to production to warehouse management, sales, and all administrative functions, through to customer relationships.
“There are specific solutions for industries, for instance, high tech, oil and gas, utilities, chemicals, healthcare, retail, consumer products, and the public sector,” he said
Making a presentation on SAP’s Ecosystem Luciano Ravenna, SAP Africa said the SAP ecosystem offers the most comprehensive and consistent industry approach to enable customers, partners, and individuals to accelerate innovation and improve returns on investment.
“SAP operates in an ecosystem containing over 1,500 partner organizations. It thus offers a choice to customers to design how they wish their software to be delivered and deployed,” he said.
