SAP Business One Gets New Hosted, Subscription Model
SAP’s Business One suite for small businesses is now available in a new subscription-based, hosted offering through SAP partners.
Previously those partners first needed to purchase Business One licenses from SAP, and then offer them to customers via subscription pricing on their own volition. Partners will now be able to rent licenses from SAP on a monthly basis, and then offer them on similar terms to customers.
The new hosting option will be rolled out in phases this year and is already available now in China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Southeast Asia, Spain and the U.K., with other countries, including the U.S., coming later.
