SAP stands for “Systems, Applications and Products in Data Processing” and it was founded in 1972. SAP, known for being a market leader in the enterprise application software, helps both small and large companies as well as industries to run better. It generally offers a suite of software that simplifies service provision and cost management, supports integrated processes and distributes the information needed for informed planning and decision-making.
As of today, SAP continues to make sales and has development areas located in over 50 countries across the world. The demand for SAP services and applications keeps on rising (more than 109,000 customers worldwide) because many customers would like to operate beneficially, adapt constantly as well as develop sustainably.
SAP has currently introduced a selection of innovative solutions across the board which allows smaller companies to grow their business at a pace that they deem most suitable for them. Below are some of them:
SAP Business Objects Portfolio offers a wide range of tools and applications designed to help you optimize the performance of your business by means of connecting people, information and businesses across other business networks.

SAP Crystal Solutions Configurator has been introduced by SAP within their Business All-in-One fast-start program in order to accommodate the rapid growth of smaller companies. The Configurator is an intuitive piece of software that is user-friendly and is designed to help you discover what will be the best possible solution for a particular task, challenge or project that you are currently working on. Just answer a few simple questions regarding the information challenges you would encounter, and the Configurator will recommend the best packages or products according to your needs.
There are times you could not pinpoint every problem that would arise at the current project you’re working on, and going to a contractor to identify and solve them is very expensive and oftentimes, the correct answer is not found. However, with the Configurator, you automatically get to search a large database to satisfy your needs and it ultimately solves a problem that you may not be able to identify on your own. Using the Configurator online lets you scope the functionality of a solution and then evaluate the price for instant cost-effective operations, and you can do all that with just a click of the mouse.
