SAP Anywhere

Earlier this year SAP quietly introduced new offering for SME segment. As they have already presence in this segment with their SAP Business One solution (SBO) and by SAP Business All-in-One which are on premise type of solution and by SAP Business ByDesign which is cloud solution also a push to cloud for the SBO was logically expected.

The SAP Anywhere is first front-office suite for managing of sales, marketing, e-commerce and inventory activities in one complete system. It is provided as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) which runs by SAP in a public cloud. It can be accessed via mobile devices and/or desktops as well. Right now solution is available for China market with rest of world to be followed in 2016. 

Question is how the new offering fits into existing one – especially to the SBO. As per SAP for companies running the SBO there are plans evolve their SBO systems to SAP Anywhere. With regards to SAP Business ByDesign there is application programming interface (API) which can be provided to partners for integration of the SAP Anywhere with the SAP Business ByDesign solution.
