In case the launch of the SAP Best Run Now program didn’t catch your attention last week, I’m blogging about it, for two reasons: a) to make note of the fact that SAP has acted quickly to help customers manage through tough and challenging economic times, creating tangible offers and b) to point you to links to learn more about this if you, your colleagues or your clients are interested in exploring the offers.
SAP is taking quite an extraordinary step here, working quickly across internal functional boundaries to create and launch special offers of software and services for large enterprises, specifically designed to address the pain points of businesses trying to increase efficiencies, cut costs and realize faster time to value for investments in IT.
Financing options from SAP are also available in select markets; check with your local sales contact
SAP has packaged software and complimentary services from SAP and trusted third parties that address the following topics:
Business Intelligence Accelerator
Business Planning and Consolidation
Managing Workforce Through Economic Uncertainty
Cash, Liquidity and Financial Risk Package
Additional offers will be launched shortly.
Its unusual for SAP to take such steps. It is an acknowledgement on SAP’s part of the severity of the global financial situation and a recognition that altering the focus of Q4 to solutions that improve operations during such challenging times is what’s called for.
