Why use SAP ?

SAP software was developed to be modular, scaleable, open and flexible, allowing companies to tailor it specifically to their needs. SAP calls this approach to implementing software "configure to order" because each implementation will be different according to each customer's needs.

But SAP solutions don't stop there. Information integration is a major tenet of the SAP philosophy, and SAP places great emphasis on the creation of tools that facilitate it. SAP provides integration tools and methods for linking legacy and distributed systems as well as a host of third party software solutions, to get your information into the right hands, internally and externally.

Solution from Traditional approach
Traditional Information technology systems used by many business today have been developed to accomplish some specific task and provide reports and analysis of events that have already taken place. Examples are accounting general ledger systems. Occasionally, some systems operate in a "real-time" mode that is, have up to date information in them and can be used to actually control events. A typical company has many separate systems to manage different processes like production, sales and accounting. Each of these systems has its own databases and seldom passes information to other systems in a timely manner.

SAP takes a different approach. There is only one information system in an enterprise, SAP. All applications access common data. Real events in the business initiate transactions. Accounting is done automatically by events in sales and production. Sales can see when products can be delivered. Production schedules are driven by sales. The whole system is designed to be real-time and not historical.

SAP structure embodies what are considered the "best business practices". A company implementing SAP adapts it operations to it to achieve its efficiencies and power.

The process of adapting procedures to the SAP model involves "Business Process Re-engineering" which is a logical analysis of the events and relationships that exist in an enterprise's operations.

The R/3 System's components are fully integrated. Once you enter data, it resides in the central database shared by all R/3 components. Transaction-related process chains trigger the next activity as needed from engineering to production planning to sales and distribution. The R/3 System's full integration pulls your enterprise together, promoting data access, flexibility, and productivity.
