In our industry, hardly a day goes by without newsworthy technological
advances, industry alliances, and bold, new strategic directions, especially
in the exploding arena of the Internet. What's more, at SAP we're making
a lot of that news right here.
That's why we're introducing SAP Insider.
SAP Insider is designed to keep you "in the know" with broad coverage
of SAP technology, product, and services initiatives. In every issue,
you'll get behind-the-scenes information to keep you up to speed on emerging
trends and key technologies. You'll be introduced to the new product capabilities
you need to be aware of today to plan for and succeed with the SAP solutions
There's a lot to report, especially as
SAP actualizes mySAP.com, our vision for integrating the Workplace, the
Marketplace, and Internet-enabled Business Scenarios in ways that enable
people to work smarter, better, and faster. You'll get the inside edge
on how to employ mySAP.com to optimize Web-driven supply chains, manage
strategic relationships, reduce time to market, share virtual information,
and increase personal productivity and shareholder value. This is our
most important strategic realignment ever: not a migration but, in fact,
SAP understands the ultimate goal of inter-enterprise
computing is true backend to backend integration where business partners
effortlessly collaborate, no matter what ERP solutions they employ. And,
just as you counted on SAP to provide a holistic view of the enterprise,
you can count on mySAP.com to provide a holistic view of entire markets.
This is really the promise of e-business
- and every issue of SAP Insider will give you the inside edge on the
latest business technologies, and will detail how you and your enterprise
can take full advantage of powerful new capabilities - right now.
We hope you
enjoy our premiere issue, and we invite you
to let us know what you think. Thank you, and
Executive Vice President of Development,
SAP Labs, Inc. Palo Alto, California
