SAP Business One

SAP Business One was initially launched in Israel in 1996 under the name "Menahel" or "TopManage" in English. The company was founded by Reuven Agassi (CEO) and Gadi Shamia (VP of sales, marketing and product). The product was designed by Gadi Shamia and the head developer was Hilla Mazinter. In its first years TopManage was sold in the Israeli market only and was the first Windows/Mac business management product to be offered in the Israeli market. In 2000 TopManage started its global expansion into markets in Europe and Latin America. In March 2002, SAP purchased TopManage Financial Systems and branded their system as SAP Business One. TopManage founders Reuven Agassi and Gadi Shamia, took key executive positions at SAP following the acquisition. A year earlier TopManage's sister company TopTier, was also acquired by SAP. TopTier was founded by Reuven Agassi's son Shai Agassi.The acquisition allowed SAP to reach out to the midmarket through its partners and also to gain additional business from the smaller subsidiaries of its enterprise customers.

SAP Business Suite 4 SAP HANA (or SAP S/4HANA) is a business suite offering that is built on an in-memory computing platform called SAP HANA. Previously, SAP products were designed to run on several database platforms, including those from Oracle, Microsoft and IBM.The platform SAP HANA has been available since 2010, and SAP applications like SAP ERP and the SAP Business Suite have been able to run on the SAP HANA database and/or any other database. However SAP Business Suite 4 only runs on the SAP HANA database, and thus it is packaged as one product: SAP S/4HANA. The offering is meant to cover all mission-critical processes of an enterprise. It integrates functions from lines of businesses as well as industry solutions, and also re-integrates portions of SAP Business Suite products such as SAP SRM, CRM and SCM.Analyst house Pierre Audoin Consultants said companies can reduce the complexity of their systems with S/4HANA because the platform integrates people, devices, big data and business networks in real time.SAP has said that the SAP HANA platform can potentially save an organization 37% across hardware, software, and labor costs.

SAPs vision is to provide all enterprise analytics capabilities - BI, Planning, Predictive, and GRC (Governance, Risk, and Compliance), in a single product with a single user interface. These four area’s form the key components of SAP Cloud forAnalytics.This allows user to do their jobs in one experience/workflow instead of having to jump between different applications. For example, a financial planning professional can access and analyse data, create a report, collaborate with others, and submit a forecast in one product, as that’s what their job requires.
