SAP NetWeaver: Providing the Foundation to Enable and Manage Change
  • - Business Value

    Pattern Overview

    Can your company adapt quickly enough to respond to new challenges or seize new opportunities? With SAP NetWeaver, it can.

    A comprehensive integration and application platform, SAP NetWeaver works with your existing IT infrastructure to enable and manage change. With SAP NetWeaver, you can flexibly and rapidly design, build, implement, and execute new business strategies and processes. You can also drive innovation throughout your organization by combining existing systems while maintaining a sustainable cost structure.

    SAP NetWeaver unifies integration technologies into a single platform and is preintegrated with business applications, reducing the need for custom integration. The platform is based on industry standards and can be extended with commonly used development tools such as Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE); Microsoft .NET; and IBM WebSphere.

    SAP NetWeaver makes change sustainable by helping you contain costs and reduce risk as you evolve your business. The platform is the technical foundation of mySAP Business Suite solutions, SAP xApps composite applications, partner solutions, and custom-built applications -- including composite applications -- providing the best way to integrate all systems running SAP or non-SAP software. It also enables Enterprise Services Architecture, SAP's blueprint for service-oriented business solutions.

    Business Case

    You expect your technology platform to provide a reliable infrastructure for applications. You also need it to drive down costs, deliver value, and enable an adaptive business.

    That's the power of SAP NetWeaver. The platform is designed to reduce total cost of ownership while helping you leverage your investment in, and increase the flexibility of, existing systems.

    Enhanced Adaptability SAP NetWeaver provides a single, integrated platform to help you quickly adapt to changing business needs. Without spending large amounts of time to realise new business processes.

    In addition, SAP NetWeaver brings flexibility to your business by enabling open technologies such as Web services to work for your enterprise. It's also the foundation for mission-critical business applications and snap-on composite applications such as SAP xApps.

    SAP NetWeaver lets you take advantage of existing systems -- rather than replacing them. You can connect people with information and processes provided by heterogeneous applications, databases, legacy systems, and Internet-based information. And extract new business value.

    Lower TCO, and Better ROI SAP NetWeaver minimises the need to modify existing systems or invest in custom development. The unified platform reduces complexity while encompassing your entire business -- including the people, information, and processes throughout your enterprise.

    Finally, SAP NetWeaver delivers measurable return on investment.
