SAP ERP

SAP is great for large organizations looking to streamline their business processes. To get the most out of SAP's capabilities you would ideally be a large company with over 200 regular users spread across multiple sites. Also SAP works very well when dealing across multiple countries and managing multiple currencies. SAP would be less appropriate for companies where the head count was much smaller, lets say 100 users, and a single or maybe two locations were present. Also a highly customized environment with specialty processes may not be a best fit for SAP. Large manufacturing operations, in my opinion, are the best fit customers for SAP, think FORD, BURTON, SYSCO and so on.

Pros

  • One of my favorite things about SAP was the data integrity. Because of how easily the various modules tied together there was much less room for error.
  • Integration. The various modules that SAP has work seamlessly when configured correctly. SAP has a module for what seems like everything from manufacturing processes to Maintenance to Sales Forecasting and more.
  • Change Migration. Moving changes from a development, to testing, to production is very easy via SAP transports. Also refreshing DEV and QA environments from production can be accomplished easily.

Cons

  • Even if the organization of data is performing, there is still room to grow for the customization of the platform. However, I believe that taking both performances and customization together (especially with big, all-purpose applications) is a very difficult goal to achieve.

The cost of SAP as an ERP is quite high and the switching costs associated with ERP systems are even higher. That being said moving from one ERP to another only happens once in a great while for large organizations. Those switching costs include retraining, IT hardware requirements, outside consultants and more

Alternatives Considered

Being a worldwide integrated ERP solution and having catered to a lot of businesses in our specific industry, SAP stood out in terms of: 1. Support Level
2. Ease of modifying current module
3. Ease of integrating different functionality to existing module
4. Create an entirely bespoke module integrating with multiple modules for specific functionality.
5. Resources for learning, training and understanding.
6. Multi level consultants
