SAP refutes claims that Business ByDesign development will cease
Executive board member Vishal Sikka has denied that SAP is stopping development of Business ByDesign, a cloud-based ERP product for small to mid-sized businesses.
“ByDesign is continuing, yes,” he said. “We are refactoring the product to run on HANA. We’ll move every customer to this refactored ByDesign when we have it.” According to Sikka, a team will continue to support the current version and will run it in an ABAP server until the HANA transition is completed.
