SAP Furthers Cloud Strategy with NetWeaver

computing, October 14, 2010 (Online)

SAP’s release of NetWeaver 7.3, announced at the company’s TechEd event, demonstrates SAP’s increasing commitment to the cloud. The new release offers customers the ability to manage cloud operations and provides shared tools for building applications on-premise, on-demand or on mobile devices. SAP has already said it plans to build more on-demand applications for customers. Currently, its Business ByDesign software, based on NetWeaver technology, uses a cloud model to provide SMEs with business management tools. Thomas Otter, Gartner’s lead analyst on SAP, said: “Business ByDesign will be the primary method by which SAP will build new applications, and it will also be the place where partners and ISVs will extend SAP’s Business ByDesign offerings. SAP is quietly confident that it has the architecture right this time; it feels it has the underlying technology right to support it and the margins and operating costs under control to scale it.” Adrian Simpson, SAP’s head of BI and platform, said that he expects customers increasingly to use a mix of on-premise and cloud-based applications. While SAP was traditionally associated with large on-premise implementations, he said, this is changing.
