With deep insights from the predictive analytics capabilities of SAP HANA, SMEs are able to optimize business planning, operations and decision-making while simultaneously gaining insight into new consumer trends and behavior. Customers around the world and across all industries are leveraging the new version to create centralized systems to manage all data, control both internal and external processes and gain improved insight into complex business processes.

"We chose SAP Business One on SAP HANA to prepare our business for the future on both functional and technical levels," said Gert Boutsen, head of the Financial Department at Royal Sporting Club Anderlecht. "The application provides us with all of the necessary reporting and analysis capabilities we need and can handle large data requests without issues.

And deploying a mobile version of the application for its sales force has helped Probar improve operations from pre-sale to logistics, enhancing speed and accuracy in each transaction.
