First of all, I have a very superficial knowledge of SAP SD. According to my understanding, they provide a number of industry specific solutions. The concept seems very interesting and I work on something similar for banking industry. The biggest challenge we face is how to adapt our products for different clients. Many concepts are quite similar across enterprises, but there are always some client-specific requirements that have to be resolved through configuration and customization. Often this requires reimplementing and developing customer specific features.
I wonder how efficient in this sense SAP products are. How much effort has to be spent in order to adapt the product so it satisfies specific customer needs? What are the mechanisms used (configuration, programming etc)? How would this compare to developing custom solution from scratch? Are they capable of leveraging and promoting best practices?August 18, 2017 at 5:11 pm #17805Cleo IscoKeymaster
Both standard and industry-specific SAP solutions are very flexible when it comes to customization and enhancements. This is why SAP is a market leader in the domain of ERP applications for large enterprises.March 1, 2023 at 8:22 am #46716Arusi kumariGuest
SAP industry-specific solutions are highly customizable to meet the unique needs of different industries. These solutions are designed to address the specific challenges and requirements of various industries, such as retail, manufacturing, healthcare, finance, and many others.
SAP solutions are highly modular, which means that you can choose which modules to implement, and you can also configure the modules to meet your specific needs. For example, if you are a manufacturing company, you can select the modules that are relevant to your business, such as production planning, materials management, quality management, and plant maintenance, and then configure these modules to meet your specific business processes and requirements.
SAP solutions also offer various tools and technologies that make it easier to customize the software. For example, the SAP Business Configuration Sets (BC Sets) allow you to create templates for configuring specific modules or processes, which can be applied across different systems or installations. The SAP Application Enhancement Tool (AET) enables users to add custom fields, tables, and screens to SAP applications without requiring programming skills.
SAP industry-specific solutions are highly customizable, and businesses can tailor them to meet their specific needs and requirements. However, customization can be complex and time-consuming, so it’s important to have a clear understanding of your business processes and requirements before embarking on customization efforts. Additionally, customization can make upgrades and maintenance more challenging, so it’s important to strike a balance between customization and maintaining a stable, up-to-date system.
