After long delays, SAP has finally presented a new additional product targeting SMEs. For a long time the product, code named A1S, now comes to life with a new brand name: SAP Business Bydesign. Although many things are still unclear (how much is slideware vs. real product with optimal performance, what will be the future of SAP Business One, what will be the role of SAP midmarket channel partners, will SAP achieve its aggressive targets,…) this movement is a recognition that the industry is changing and web-based technologies are the future, as we saw many years ago from our foundation back in 2001.
