SAP ByDesign App Store, anyone?

If the idea of an app store for SAP, that will enable users of the Business ByDesign on demand product sounds appealing, watch the news coming out of CeBIT 1 to 5 March.

According to Rainer Zinow, senior vice president, on-demand strategy for SAP, the event will see an announcement from SAP on this very subject.

SAP’s customer and partner event SAPPHIRE Now in Orlando 15 to 18 May will also be used to showcase the app store initiative aimed at broadening the scope of available applications.

After a faltering start, the UK ByDesign market has seen rapid expansion since SAP released starter packages for ByDesign and the long-awaited feature pack 2.5 in July 2010.

SAP now has more than 250 ByDesign customers and is looking to expand that signficantly in the coming months, says Ian Anstey, head of SAP Business ByDesign, SAP UK.
