Media Release: Step up to the cloud


SAPPHIRE announces a series of webinars to help organisations find out what cloud computing could do for them.

Stuart Smalley, account manager at Sapphire, said: “We are finding that whilst many people may have heard of the ‘cloud’ and SaaS [Software-as-a-Service], there is limited opportunity for them to take a look at the software in action and see how it could work for them in practice.”

In addition to the full SAP Business ByDesign solution, Sapphire also has a session focusing solely on the CRM (Customer Relationship Management) aspect of the solution. This is available as a stand alone module.

Says a spokesperson: “SAP Business ByDesign is a fully-integrated business management solution that delivers the best of SAP software, on-demand.

“This solution is designed as best-fit for companies that want the benefits of large-scale business management applications without the costs of supporting the corresponding IT infrastructure. SAP Business ByDesign unifies multiple business operations and enables companies to implement preconfigured business processes in order to solve immediate problems.

“Accessed via a single user interface, SAP Business ByDesign delivers pre-configured software for business processes and supports managing financials, customer relationships, human resources, projects, procurement and the supply chain.”
