Review:

Frankness is a quality permeating the pages of Implementing SAP R/3: How to Introduce a Large System into a Large Organization. Mining nearly three decades worth of combined consulting experience, authors Bancroft, Seip, and Sprengel provide incisive and brutally honest insight into what it means to overhaul both business and computing practices with SAP R/3. The book focuses more on business and process reengineering than configurations or programming. Implementing SAP R/3 does manage to provide a balanced view of the technological components of the R/3 system. The authors take pains to explain what types of businesses it is best suited for, its failures and shortcomings, as well as its triumphs.

The explanation of R/3 that kick starts this book is highly approachable, detailing the philosophical and technical underpinnings of this system. The other three loosely constructed sections deal almost exclusively with the complexity of an R/3 implementation. Throughout these portions, the authors emphasize the importance of identifying and establishing project goals, a point liberally illustrated by various case studies. Additionally, a terrific glossary is tucked away in the final pages, as are four appendices. These appendices cover data-modeling and relational-database concepts, content and structure of the SAP data dictionary, and the development of Advanced Business Application Programming/4GL (ABAP4). --Sarah L. Roberts-Witt

From the Back Cover:

This book answers the most critical technical and management questions faced by any manager or IT professional involved in SAP R/3 implementation. In this book, three leading SAP R/3 consultants offer a complete tour of SAP R/3, its architecture and key components. They introduce the basics of configuring an R/3 System, including training and in-house user groups. Using many case studies, they show how top companies have used SAP R/3 as the basis of a reengineering program - and the lessons they've learned along the way. This new edition adds detailed technical information in two entirely new chapters: The R/3 System in Depth, and Configuring SAP R/3. SAP R/3 is increasingly implemented by global companies, so this edition also adds new coverage of the issues that arise in international implementations. All IT professionals and managers and senior executives involved in - or considering - implementing SAP R/3 enterprise solutions.
