SAP Business Networks will replace disconnected, one-to-one integrations with trading partners, bringing points of integration together in one place.

SAP Business Network connects SAPs existing procurement, logistics, asset, and industry-specific networks today, and will connect to more networks in the future.

When all your networks become one single network, collaboration becomes singular and synchronous – and a common data model, set of services, intelligence, and an analytics engine make it possible. You and every trading partner connect to the SAP network once, in turn connecting you to multiple partners and people.

Your systems connect once and processes and data flow freely and securely across functions and workflows.

With this level of consistency and precision, SAP Business Network smooths out the friction that slows down commerce. It applies cross-company, network-wide intelligence to predict opportunities and avoid disruptions. It delivers deeper insights to benchmark your performance, so you know where you can improve. SAP will share more information soon, so stay tuned!

Moving from enterprise to network planning results in enhanced transparency, visibility, collaboration, agility, and optimization, and allows for better steering across the whole value chain in real time. SAP will create value for our customers by giving them visibility and insights into their supply network, offering flexibility in adjusting it rapidly, and a way to collaborate along end-to-end processes that span way beyond company borders.
