SAP Business One 8.8 Ramp Up


SAP Business One 8.8 is currently in "ramp-up", and has been for roughly 8 months. Ramp-up is SAP's term for end user testing and beta, in which customers around the world use the product in a test and live environment. Orchestra is participating in ramp-up, with customers on the new version already and using SAP Business One 8.8 internally ourselves.

Our customers in ramp-up and our own experience tells us the new 8.8 version is ready for the big time. The upgrade takes less than four hours, and the benefits are immediate with more speed, nice new user interface, and embedded Crystal Reports.

SAP Business One 8.8 general release is planned for April 2010, so all customers should begin the process of scheduling an upgrade and doing any testing necessary for your system. We've found very few issues with upgrading to 8.8, but we always recommend a round of testing before doing any type of system version upgrade.

SAP Business One 8.8 Enhancements

  • Data Archiving capabilities allow for improved performance over time as transactional data grows.
  • Embedded Crystal Reports, allowing for real time business intelligence about your business.
  • iPhone Integration - needs no explanation, it's just cool
  • Remote Support Platform - allows Orchestra to proactively monitor your system, preventing issues before they arise
  • Integrations - SAP Business One is now the single most integrate-able solution for small and midsize companies
