In just a few short years, SAP has exploded onto the business and computing landscape and become a dominant force in enterprise-wide computing at thousands of corporations, from Fortune 500 to much smaller startups. Written by a team of industry-leading experts, this authoritive resource guides managers through the implementation of this powerful system and provides a checklist of things a company should consider when successfully implementing SAP.

This book provides a real-life perspective that can help you avoid common pitfalls when implementing SAP. It shows you how SAP will impact your business and, more specifically, your customers, material suppliers, and distributors. It explains why many SAP projects fail or run over budget and time. Managers will gain a better understanding of the advantages and disadvantages of SAP and become proficient with all its intricacies.

You will follow an electronics company through the entire implementation process, looking at the decisions that were made during the procedure and the effects — good and bad — SAP had on the organization. A detailed explanation of the new ASAP Fast Track Implementation process is also included.
