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. Content in this area will cover a wide range of topics from the SAP and partner technologies across the enterprise ERP space, the enterprise ERP systems themselves, the cloud platforms, providers, and technologies that underpin and support those systems, to the physical infrastructure and operating systems that are needed for SAP products to be deployed.
