SAP Partner Summit for SME - Key Takeaways

May 07, 2024

Ascarii’s team has just returned from the SAP Partner Summit for SME in Phoenix and Madrid. These were excellent events for the SAP Business One partner community and achieved the largest turnout of delegates in the conference’s history. Our team very much enjoyed networking with other SAP partners, discussing the future developments in the world of SAP Business One, cloud technology and what new advances in AI and other technologies can bring to SAP customers worldwide. Here are our key takeaways from the event.

SAP Business One Steals the Show!

With more than 80,000 customers worldwide, SAP’s ongoing investment into SAP Business One continues to pay off. With exciting new features and functionality in the product roadmap, it is evident that SAP Business One remains the ideal ERP solution to support the strategic growth of its SME customers. With its multilingual and multicurrency features, and forthcoming developments to the web client, SAP Business One is perfectly positioned to support customers in their global expansion while providing detailed insight into every aspect of their business.

Embracing AI to Deliver Exceptional Service

Along with most big players in the technology sector, SAP's focus on AI investment is evident. Innovative features are designed to enhance customer experiences with SAP Business One and SAP partners, such as, are focusing on advancing technological development in the field of Gen-AI, giving SAP Business One partners the ability to generate new customer solutions with pre-configured standard ‘Waves’ that enhance their customers’ experience with SAP Business One.

Quality & Value over Price

One of the main things we experienced during both SAP Partner Summit for SME events was conversations with partners who were more concerned about the quality and value of the service they could offer to their customers, rather than trying to find the cheapest option. Prior perception over AWS being ‘expensive’ seems to have evolved into the widespread awareness that AWS provides a highly secure, scalable, and sustainable hosting platform that provides true value for customers. To complement this however, as a global Advanced Tier Services Partner, Ascarii is able to leverage substantial discounts from AWS, which we can pass on to customers enabling them to migrate to the cloud at a more accessible price point.

SAP Business One no longer supported on SAP Public Cloud

The news that SAP Business One will no longer be supported on SAP Public Cloud is extremely important for the global SAP Business One partner community. For SAP Business One end users, this means that their partners will need to find alternative hosting options for their SAP Business One solutions. This is where we can help.
