SAP offers new tool for SMEs

SAP, one of the world leaders in enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, has revealed a new piece of software aimed at helping small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to boost efficiency and productivity. SAP Business ByDesign offers a sophisticated tool to boost performance whilst reducing a firm’s overall IT infrastructure complexity.

One of the huge challenges that SMEs face is that their IT systems are often operated within a silo, meaning that various departments rarely communicate data to one another. This means the SMEs can be less competitive and responsive to the market. It also consumes a lot more resources ‒ something that small companies seldom have enough of. As businesses grow, the demands on IT evolve; however, because everything is siloed, IT infrastructure can become extremely complex.

SAP Africa’s director of general business and partner operations, Chris Willcocks, explained: “With cloud-based ERP and business management software for mid-size companies, it is now possible to run your entire company on a single, cloud-based business management suite. SAP Business ByDesign is ideally suited to medium-sized businesses and subsidiaries of large corporations. Not only is SAP Business ByDesign our suite in the cloud for the mid-size market, but it is also an important and integral component of our product portfolio. This software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering covers everything from ERP to CRM, procurement, supply chain management, and also offers complete functionality for financial, human resources, marketing, sales, service, supply chain, procurement and project management processes. We are incredibly excited to bring it to Africa.”

In an Oxford Economics study 61% of South African SMEs are busily forming business networks beyond their borders as a way to strengthen relationships and offer an increased variety of products and services. Around the world the digital age means that the same could be true of other SMEs, all of which need better IT solutions.

SAP Business ByDesign offers a variety of benefits, one of which is that end-to-end processes can be streamlined, offering boosted efficiencies across an organisation. Integrated analytics and SAP HANA-powered reporting mean companies can gain timely business insights, whilst the solution can be accessed on almost any mobile device. SAP has also addressed ongoing security concerns surrounding cloud computing and has SAP experts on hand to manage, monitor and maintain its data centres.

For SMEs wanting to optimise their business and ensure they are able to compete with larger competitors, SAP Business ByDesign could be the perfect tool.

Why do we punish the victims of hacking?

2017-09-21 09:00:00 +0100

Hacks occur every 39 seconds, with 95% of them targeting governments, retailers and the tech industry. If the hackers are caught, they'll face prison time under the Computer Misuse Act. More often than not, the businesses who are victims of those attacks expose themselves to punishment of their own. The laws that determine the duty of protection owed to businesses and their customers is both vague and broad, making them question just how much protection...

Tech is for girls... and always has been!

2017-09-18 10:00:00 +0100

Today, it's hard to deny that the IT and tech industry is a male-dominated field. Women earn only 28%[1] of computer science degrees, while the quit rate for women in the high tech industry is 41%[2], twice as high as it is for men. These two statistics would suggest that perhaps women aren't just discouraged from entering the tech field, but may find it a challenging environment to work in both in terms of treatment and pay.
