The registered data can start simple, such as to register the purchase of raw materials for your organization, followed by the process of listing the production of the items, and updating the perceptions, comments, and the level of satisfaction of the final customer.

The information collected by the software can also be used to make forecasts about your company’s functions, such as the future need to repair equipment or the estimated financial growth from a certain time period. All data recorded by the SAP system can be installed on-premises or in the cloud, which is an especially popular option with SAP having a cloud user base of approximately 245 million. [2]

  • Less complex generation of data
  • Faster workflows
  • Real-time, enterprise-wide insights
  • Improved operational efficiency
