Separately, SAP outlined NetWeavers adaptive computing capabilities that should help users better handle demand for hardware resources through technologies like blade servers and virtual servers, officials said. SAP is working with partners Dell Inc., Fujitsu Ltd., Hewlett-Packard Co., IBM, Intel Corp., Network Appliance Inc., Sun Microsystems Inc. and T-Systems Inc. to provide adaptive computing capabilities. Finally, the packaged applications for the midmarket include those for CRM (customer relationship management) and ERP (enterprise resource management), as well as a group of vertically aligned applications.
The packages are actually software and services that incorporate SAP best practices around specific business processes, at a fixed scope and fixed implementation price.
The CRM offering, which is based on SAPs enterprise CRM software, includes 16 separate packages that encapsulate customer-centric processes like campaign management, lead management and Internet sales. SAP partners will offer additional CRM capabilities. The ERP offering is based on mySAP ERP—which means it includes NetWeaver capabilities—and offers best practices for industry-specific implementations. The Best Practice vertically aligned packages are geared for the automotive, chemicals, consumer products, high-tech, industrial machinery and professional services markets.
