Pick and choose: SAP unveils ERP enhancement package; Sustainability report

11/12/2008


SAP just launched Enhancement Package 4 (EhP4), an ERP solution containing hundreds of new features catering to vertical manufacturing sectors in consumer, discrete, life sciences, and the process industries.
EhP4 offers these key capabilities:
• Enables manufactures to pick and chose among numerous horizontal (core business) and vertical industry functionalities via an on-demand delivery method without the disruption of traditional IT implementations/system upgrades.
• Eliminates the most prohibitive burdens to IT upgrades during times of economic uncertainty/limited credit, including:

Over-budget implementations


Manufacturers in today’s economy lack financial tolerance for over-budget IT implementations and months of associated business disruptions. EhP4’s on-demand delivery enables companies to download hundreds of new functionalities in a matter of hours. Comparable implementations with other software providers take months, cause ongoing business disruptions and require the extra cost of engaging system integrators.

Product cost

Manufacturers save money via the ability to pick and download only the functionalities they need, rather than overpaying tens of thousands of dollars for a solution in which they’ll only use 30 percent the functionality.

Breadth of features

While some software providers only offer upgrade “patches” for horizontal functionality, EhP4 provides hundreds of vertical industry and horizontal enhancements.
