PLATFORM: IMPROVING FLEXIBILITY AND RESPONSIVENESS
Leading companies realise that to succeed, they must deploy strategies faster than the competition – and close the gap between strategic goals and operational execution. With platform technology from SAP, you can keep your competitive edge with agile operations that can support continuous business improvement.
SAP delivers flexibility and responsiveness through:
- Service-oriented architecture – An open architecture in which functionality is aligned with business processes and packaged as interoperable services. Built for flexibility, service-oriented architecture (SOA) helps IT meet diverse business challenges such as creating new services, processes and products – with greater ease and at lower cost than traditional information architectures.
- SAP NetWeaver technology platform – The unified technology foundation that runs SAP Business Suite and allows you to administer, integrate and extend business processes and applications across your customers' business networks. With SAP NetWeaver components, tools and applications, you can orchestrate business processes, compose applications and deploy innovative solutions.
- SAP In-Memory Computing technology – Groundbreaking hardware and software innovations that bring the new reality of real-time enterprise computing to your business, enabling you to manage and analyse massive volumes of data instantly and cost effectively while reducing IT complexity.
- SAP BusinessObjects portfolio – Offers a broad range of tools and applications designed to help you optimise business performance by connecting people, information and businesses across business networks.
