Built on the guiding principles of “design thinking,” SAP Sales OnDemand has been developed based on intensive feedback from customer and prospect sales teams, beginning in the conceptual design phase and continuing through general availability. Co-Innovating with customers and partners throughout the design, development and deployment helps see that the solution is easy to use and that user requirements are met.
The solution is built on the SAP® Business ByDesign™ solution platform, enabling capabilities including in-memory computing technology and support of mobile devices.
