Dear SAP SME Partners,

thank you for attending the Intelligent Enterprise Competition 2021 for EMEA & MEE

It is a well-known fact that the success of SAP Business One and SAP Business ByDesign is only possible due to the incredible SME Partner Community that surrounds those solutions.

Innovation is a process (and not a short one). Step-by-Step, we started to push our partners to become cloud-basedto adopt a loosely coupled architecture, and to look at the huge options of services and platforms out there that would help their solutions to be easy to scale, enhance and maintain.

The pay-off has been great! We can see a clear evolution in the level of innovation our partners are bringing to the market which are captured in our SME Innovation Playbook.
The new Version 3 with 50+ Innovation Stories is currently on the way and will be published later in Q4 / 2021.
