SAP is merging its medium-sized business solutions, including the cloud solution SAP Business ByDesign, in a newly established business unit in order to better serve small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with front and back office applications. The reorganization is also accompanied by a number of personnel changes. Barry Padgett will head the new division, which includes SAP Business One, SAP Anywhere and SAP Business ByDesign.

“Today, customers have the right to be looked after by companies in real time. That’s why managers and owners of small and medium-sized companies must respond to this challenge with intelligent IT solutions that can be operated without a large IT department, ”said Padgett. “I am very much looking forward to building this new organization that is fully geared towards the needs of SMEs in the front and back office.”
