“Business is not by chance, its ByDesign”

The product was built from the ground up taking into account SAP’s 45 history in ERP. This is built around end to end business processes with the ability to further configure the offering to the specific needs of the business. This is great news for small to medium-sized companies, who can, therefore, achieve functionality specific to their business, without the build cost of a bespoke system and without the worry of how future-proof this will be.

Data Centre and Security

SAP Business ByDesign is offered exclusively in the cloud – a true SaaS model – and therefore we quite often get asked the question around security. If you would like to learn more about the data centre, including a virtual tour then please click here. Needless to say, security and availability are the highest priority for the data centre and with two independently provided power sources, 13 backup diesel generators, water cooling and regular, full backups, data is safer here than on premise. That’s not to mention the continual testing, which ensures compliance with, and retention of, the ISO27001 and ISAE 3402 (or SSAE 16) standards.


Not only is your data accessible from anywhere in the world with a browser, totally secure within one of the SAP data centres, but you also get extensive functionality to allow all of your business processes to be carried out in the way you want.The product has 36 standard, out of the box business scenarios which can be utilised within your business to standardise processes. Due to the adaptability of the solution, business specific processes can be catered for, ensuring your business can operate in the most efficient way possible.The following illustrates the areas of business that are covered with this full, end-to-end business management software solution.
