ERP Platform & Infrastructure

The enterprise ERP system is the core of the SAPinsider’s business landscape, representing a single source of both business and financial data. At the same time it also is part of a larger landscape of solutions that consume that data including analytics, financial management, data management, SCM, and HCM. To be successful all these solutions require a supporting platform and infrastructure on which they are deployed.
