SAP AG is now offering SAP Business One OnDemand, which will allow partners to host the enterprise resource planning software and target smaller companies.
SAP intends to provide SAP Business One OnDemand through qualified partners. Partners in turn will charge customers a monthly subscription fee per user.
The system will initially be available in 18 countries, including Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, China, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Mexico, the Netherlands, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States.
Hosting partners will need to obtain an SAP hosting certification, while VARs without SAP hosting certification will be able to subcontract to a certified SAP hosting partner.
“Small companies with little infrastructure and outsourced IT are expecting cloud offerings, sometimes in easy combination with their existing software,” said SAP AG president of ecosystem and channels Eric Duffaut. “Together with our partners, SAP is committed to providing customers of all sizes with choice and a solution that fits their needs. Now, small companies can use SAP Business One on premise or in the cloud to run their businesses better.”
