Managing Business with SAP: Planning, Implementation and Evaluation is a collection of valuable experiences and perspectives from IT professionals regarding the selection and implementation of SAP.

Managing Business with SAP: Planning, Implementation, and Evaluation covers the basic concepts and principles of ERP/SAP technology, the challenges and issues encountered in the integration and implementation of ERP/SAP systems; and the critical success factors for measuring effective system implementation. Discussions span from the history of SAP to the availability of a strategic implementation plan to ensure the successful and effective use of the implementation approach.

Managing Business with SAP: Planning, Implementation and Evaluation is important to all IT managers as it addresses the reasons why many ERP systems fail, and how IT managers can improve the rate of successful implementation.
