SAP has been doing a good job of starting events such as this to a virtual audience as well concerning the ones that can go to live. I was offering a webcast at the same time and had not been able to participate. However, lots of other bloggers tuned in and have already put together some excellent analysis of what Business Suite 7 (BS7) is about.
One thing that BS7 does not seem to be: a major functionality upgrade. SAP already has more features available off-the-shelf than anybody company can put into action. There used to be always a time when you could rank vendors against useful requirements and come up with very different information. Although every system has its talents, when it comes to industry-specific requirements especially, the buyer’s decision today often comes down to factors other than functionality.
These other factors are what SAP is apparently handling with BS7. Ease of implementation and enhancements: SAP is emphasizing a modular approach to instead of the proverbial big-bang. Although you could purchase SAP systems on the modular basis always, SAP used to force comprehensive sales to determine as large a footprint as possible within the client’s operation.

Such an approach doesn’t fit the economic times, however, so SAP is emphasizing its capability to work in smaller bites which consists of service-oriented structures (Netweaver). Although new functionality does not appear to be the main concentrate of BS7, Today SAP did announce over 150 functional improvements. However, they may be being rolled out as “enhancement packages,” which customers can implement selectively–again, forgoing the necessity for a large bang upgrade. Value situations. Again, fitting along with these recessionary times, SAP is emphasizing short-term ROI of pitching its products as a long-term strategic platform instead.

How much will it cost to join up a business? The price to register a business is based upon the fees billed by (1) the state, (2) the county and (3) the city governments. What are retainer fees? It concerns a set charge that someone (or a business) pays to an entity (attorney or other kind of business) to be on “stand-by” position to be called upon when needed. Why is real property fees are so high? The expense of running a real business including advertising and account fees are one of the reason.
