In this blog post, we are taking a closer look at two important initiatives from SAP with a focus on what they are and how they can help companies optimize their ERP systems and accelerate their business growth.
In this ongoing series about the Digital Solutions Economy™ (DSE) previous episodes have focused on DSE for specific industry segments such as DSE in telecom, media, electronics, medical devices, software/SaaS, semiconductors, transportation, energy, and utilities.
One of the biggest advantages of the return to in-person events is the opportunity for engaging with colleagues in those impromptu conversations that organically bring to the surface new insights. These unstructured talks create the kind of "ah-ha" moments that you just can't get in a half hour video call.
The Bramasol team had the pleasure of doing just that last week at SAP Insider in Las Vegas and it was both enjoyable and very informative! We saw a steady stream of booth traffic, great questions about our demos, excellent audience interaction at John Froelich's presentation on "Powering Digital Transformation with SAP Quote-to-Cash", and lots of sidebar conversations at lunches, dinners and on the show floor.
Here are four key insights and trends from our interactions with fellow participants at the SAP Insider Event.

Software as a Service (SaaS) is a delivery model in which software is provided over the internet, on a subscription basis, rather than as a product installed on companies' own computers. SaaS has its roots in the late 1990s with early adopters such as Salesforce.com, but it wasn't until the mid-2000s that SaaS started to gain widespread adoption. In the following decades, the growth of cloud computing and the increasing availability of high-speed internet made SaaS a more viable option for businesses of all sizes.
Today, SaaS is a multi-billion dollar industry, the fastest growing business model, and is a major driver of innovation in the software industry. Analytics firm Statista estimates that the SaaS market is worth approximately 146 billion in U.S. dollars and estimated to reach 195 billion U.S. dollars by 2023.
In 2018, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) and the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) announced the release of new accounting standards, ASC 842 and IFRS 16, that redefined how organizations must account for leases.
These new leasing standards represent more than just an accounting change, with far-reaching and profound implications on lease/buy decisions, internal process coordination and financial reporting. Effective lease management must go beyond a one-time compliance perspective by enabling both ongoing management of lease changes and seamless integration with associated finance processes.
