Informative Discussion

I just had a very informative discussion with a major seller and implementer of BbyD and I have to revise my earlier posting (and opinion) that Business One will supplant BbyD in the marketplace or in SAP’s cloud roadmap any time soon. Although ultimately the market will decide SAP’s cloud direction (BbyD versus hosted ECC), I think BbyD might be the better fit for small and mid-sized companies once all things are considered (primarily TCO & scalability). Although I may just be jazzed on BbyD based solely on my recent conversation (the presenters were quite convincing), I must admit we at WG are considering mightily whether to allocate some of our new resources toward BbyD sales and implementation.

We’ll study up as best we can on the functionality and keep you posted as we make our decision.
