SAP® Business One Version for SQL is an integrated business management application designed from the ground up for small and midsize businesses. And it can help your company automate its management, sales, production, logistics, and financial processes.

There are several different options available for running SAP Business One for your business:

You can run SAP Business One on SQL Server Database. SAP Business One server on the Microsoft SQL server. As always, the SAP Business One client connects each user to the SAP Business One server. All transactions will be done through the SQL server.

If you need more analytical power, you can run SAP Business One, analytics on SAP HANA – which combines a system running on the SQL server database with an analytics server running on the SAP HANA in-memory database.

The newest option is run SAP Business One, version for SAP HANA – in which both transactions and analytics run directly on the SAP HANA in-memory database.

An Application for Everyone

The easiest way to understand SAP Business One is to think of all of the people who are involved in a business:

  • There are people in sales that gather leads, go on sales calls, and make sales.
  • There are people who account for what has been bought and sold, and who make sure the money flows properly in and out of the company to and from suppliers, customers, and employees.
  • There are people who take customers’ orders and fulfill them, either by sending goods or by providing services.
  • There are people who manage operations such as inventory control or service delivery.
  • There are managers who monitor and manage the entire business.

Now imagine that one application can help all of these people do their jobs, and that all of them work with the same set of information using the same application that can do the following:

  • Integrate all parts of your business so everyone operates on the same core business information.
  • Supply users with personalized interfaces specially designed to support the way they work.
  • Process data in real time so you never have to wait for nightly or weekly postings, which means that the financial data of your business is always up to date and available.
  • Issue warnings and trigger corrective actions to take place automatically when certain limits set by managers and other users are exceeded.
  • Simplify reporting and analysis with “easy to create and run” reports delivered to you on demand.
