  3. 3. . . . TO ACHIEVE BUSINESS EXCELLENCE AND INNOVATION mySAP™ ERP: YOUR BUSINESS, YOUR FUTURE, YOUR SUCCESS The mySAP™ ERP application is the trusted foundation for business excellence and innovation, providing organizations with the enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution they need to gain strategic insight, competitive differentiation, increased productivity, and business agility. With mySAP ERP, SAP has transferred its vision of increasing efficiency within an organization to ERP applications that help automate end-to-end business processes and extend those processes to the entire business ecosystem, including customers, partners, and suppliers. With mySAP ERP, you can increase your employees’ productivity and provide them with the insight needed to make decisions that set you apart from the competition. mySAP ERP is powered by the SAP NetWeaver® platform. SAP NetWeaver unifies technology components into a single platform, allowing organizations to reduce IT complexity and obtain more business value from their IT investments. It provides the best way to integrate all systems running SAP® or non-SAP software. SAP NetWeaver also helps organizations align IT with their business. With SAP NetWeaver, organizations can compose and enhance business solutions rapidly using enterprise services. As the foundation for enterprise services architecture, SAP NetWeaver allows organizations to evolve their current IT landscapes into a strategic environment that drives business change.
