SAP Promises More On-Demand Apps

 Stop us if you've heard this one before: SAP is talking about hosted and on-demand applications. Sound familiar? It should. SAP blew smoke about hosted apps for years and then introduced its Business ByDesign offering, which, aside from being grammatically ambiguous, was a bit of a catastrophe. In fact, RCPU has heard that the company pretty much scrapped the whole project (and its staff), although there's still a ByDesign page on SAP's Web site.

Well, the German titan's new leadership is saying that on-demand apps will be back on the menu, right there next to payroll software, the balanced scorecard and schnitzel. If SAP can pull it off, Microsoft Dynamics partners might want to watch out for a serious competitor in the SMB ERP space. But we're not holding our breath, frankly.
