Special Report: SAP's on-demand strategy

 As SAP's new co-CEOs Bill McDermott and Jim Hagemann Snabe continue to provide clarity on the vendor's product strategy moving forward, they have been careful not to leave SAP's on-demand strategy off the list. In fact, development and delivery of on-demand software is a big focus for SAP in 2010, as the vendor has cited the cloud as a major way it thinks customers will innovate moving forward.

SAP aims to deliver a hybrid approach to the cloud for larger customers -- providing on-demand, line-of-business applications to complement on-premise deployments of the Business Suite. It's hoping SMBs will look to Business ByDesign -- the notoriously beleaguered SaaS suite for companies between 100 and 500 employees. SAP plans to have the product generally available by July.

In this special report, learn more about SAP's on-demand strategy, including how on-demand and in-memory computing are priorities for SAP in 2010, and why SAP is trying to provide the best of both worlds when it comes to on-premise vs. on-demand BI deployments. Also learn more about why end-to-end process concerns and profitability questions have held up the release of SAP Business ByDesign, and how beta users and analysts think the product is improving.
