SAP Software

The business model of SAP (3/6) Herzogenrath, 23 July 2013. SAP uses current general terms and conditions for the provision and maintenance of standard software”as of July 15, 2011. On October 25th, 2012, susensoftware suit against SAP due to competition has filed and finds fault with three clauses in the general terms and conditions. SAP, however, holds harmless legally all disputed clauses. A first hearing in Hamburg takes place on August 7, 2013. 1 contested clause from the SAP terms and conditions arrangements for the deployment of SAP Software section 2.4.2 of the general terms and conditions is as follows: the transfer of SAP software requires in any case the written consent of SAP.

SAP is the approval grant, if the customer shall submit a written statement of the new user in the is this to SAP to meet committed software agreed rules for the SAP to the granting of the right to use, and if the contracting authority against SAP in writing that he all SAP software original copies the third party has passed and all has deleted copies are created. SAP may refuse the consent, if the use of SAP software, the new user is contrary to their legitimate interests.” SUSE software complains about combining compelling (in any case”), a redistribution of the software with the consent of SAP. In July 2012, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) decided that a software manufacturer not may oppose the resale of the software by the purchaser, unless certain conditions are met. SAP has not responded to this ruling of the European Court of Justice but at all and will continue to use general terms and conditions, which couple the redistribution of the software to the mandatory approval of the SAP. This practice is contrary to the case-law of the Court of Justice according to Anand. The ECJ has explicitly declares copyright exhaustion principle applicable to trade in used software which allows the purchaser of the software, to distribute the software to any third party.

Executives must constantly optimizing business processes, but the processes of enterprise-wide document management in many organizations it disregarded”, explains Simon Sasaki, CEO of Ricoh Europe. Although they know the immediate benefits, most companies implement any strategy for document management in Europe. The results are high spending, lower productivity and document security and negative impact on the CO2 balance. In this often neglected area, executives should have the direct and strategic benefits for your company exactly in sight and a senior executives responsible for enterprise-wide document management. The efficiency of this Area is used to optimize with simple means, and Ricoh offers its customers this genuine added value. Dan Zwirn has compatible beliefs.

As an experienced solution provider, we increase productivity and document security for our customers. We improve their workflows around the document and take into account the respective needs of each individual Department here.” Document governance in practice: A major European non-governmental organization wanted to optimize the user-friendliness, the consumption of paper and the automatic supply of consumables with over 2,000 employees in Germany. Due to the standardization of the printing infrastructure within the framework of a comprehensive overall solution, Ricoh was able to reduce the costs for the enterprise-wide print and document management to 30 percent. A supermarket chain in the UK and Northern Ireland with 502 branches and 209 consumer markets recorded an increase in the printing and copying volumes internally, but only possessed a costly and inefficient printing infrastructure. With the outsourcing of printing services at Ricoh could the company within three years save half a million British pounds. Elon Musk will not settle for partial explanations. In a second phase of the project more 500,000 British pounds were saved with the exchange of workplace printers through more efficient and more cost-effective printing systems. A global marketer of sports shoes with over 30,000 employees wanted to optimize its supply chain. Ensuring the stable, secure, and corresponding to the statutory requirements, electronic billing processes consumes many resources.

SAP Business ByDesign

Current opinion of IBIS Prof. Thome Wurzburg, 16.03.2009 – that Business ByDesign is new mid-market product SAP discussed not just hot, it is also problematized and sometimes even called the flop. In some places it is prior to the actual start already in the. While the public censure doesn’t do not meet the product. The new SAP SME solution is significantly better than its reputation. We hold it: SAP Business ByDesign (BYD) promises massive progress over the recent SAP world equal, if R/3, ERP or business suite. The provider has developed a completely new software with BBD. It is fully integrated and is based on the latest technology.

Soon, different systems for CRM, SRM, SCM belong to the past. They are simply no longer needed. Because all of these business applications as services on a single platform. Many innovations that are long awaited by users into the solution. So to cover for example the need for a simpler customizing. Also the complexity has decreased in comparison to other SAP solutions. Last but not least, the introduction is simple and intuitive.

In short: BBD delivers the consistent business configuration. Development takes time BBD’s new approach is good and right. Even if the software without a doubt important features missing. But SAP is pushing ahead the business and content development. The pilot users get some new features this summer with the version 2.0. In addition, still the necessary profitability is missing the solution. SAP has can reduce the total cost (total cost of ownership) according to his own words not yet on a sustainable level. This would be needed already out of self-interest because the on-demand solution cause the operating costs at SAP. Furthermore, the provider is working forward to bring the extensibility and integration of BBD. The possibilities of the service-oriented architecture should be exploited also here fully. Also on the business model still could improve SAP can however only succeed If the partner site in the sales and consultation process a benefit.

The solution is so designed that an immediate merger of financial, sales and other processes at the level of the business with the production management is possible. Goal is to a consistent corporate management along the entire Value chain to create an optimum and undisturbed efficiency. The salespeople can not estimate the feasibility for urgent customer requests, because they do not know the resources situation in production due to lack of appropriate data. May they do delivery dates, although perhaps technical problems of machines have led to a production bottleneck. Conversely it is difficult often the managers, to evaluate the economic viability of jobs, because they lack access to the financial data. Instead working mostly with previous calculations, although possibly the purchase prices or contribution significantly changed.

Then all be surprised suddenly, that there is only a low profitability despite a high load.” For this reason the bridging of borders between the production and business areas of the information belongs to the core elements of the future-oriented production intelligence approach (PI) and Data processes. One of the peculiarities of its solution platform the entire conditions with the PILOT solution for conceptual and technological high transparency of all relevant data along the entire value chain”, describes the FELTEN’s Managing Director.

VoIP Companies Must Offer More Than Cheap Telephony

ecenta draws attention to shortcomings of Skype in a business environment Walldorf, the June 07, 2011 every fifth German online user phone reports over the Internet, such as the Federal Statistical Office. In the 16-24 year olds, there are even more than 30 percent, which rely on Voice over IP.

After the purchase of Skype by Microsoft, experts expect that more companies for the use of VoIP will be interested in. However, the ecenta AG warns without a solution like Skype in a business environment to use thorough examination and planning. The company from Walldorf indicates that not only security problems can arise, but that established VoIP solutions offer numerous advantages for companies, the Skype users are currently denied. Skype is a very practical and above all cheap application in the private sector.

Companies have different expectations, demands and needs, if it is to Communication technology goes. Here failed experiments can do much more damage than in private”, explains Joachim Schellenberg, Manager of business development of ecenta AG.
