About this feature:

Existing SAP-based enterprise resource planning deployments are rigid and stove-piped. Their legacy functionally aligned architecture makes integration and change difficult, slow, and expensive, and isolates key stakeholders with incomplete, myopic views of data, processes, and customers.

Many organizations with major investments in SAP are considering Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), Business Process Management (BPM), and Enterprise Social Computing (ESC) to innovate over these monolithic applications to transform the way they serve customers, partners and employees.

In a May 2007 report, titled SOA and BPM for Enterprise Applications: A Dose of Reality, AMR Research states: "Laggards will find that one morning their competitors who use the exact same ERP software are suddenly zooming ahead, shortening lead times, introducing new products faster, and reacting faster to changing market conditions. IT groups that hope to respond to the business faster need to start making decisions, setting a strategy, and building the skills to apply SOA and BPM as a competitive weapon.”

Market reports clearly indicate that SAP’s Enterprise SOA portfolio is incomplete and will be several months before it turns into a reasonably complete, functional, fully usable reality.
