For any industry, specific knowledge is key in order to beat the competition. You require a service or a solution that has in-depth understanding of what you really need, for example real-time analysis and quick point-of-sale access in Retail, promotional knowledge in Consumer Products, or transparency on every level in the Professional Services industry. Sometimes, you have such unique requirements that a standard solution just can’t cover it all. Good news: You can extend your existing SAP industry portfolio with niche solutions built for your needs and specialties.
