Global CIO: 20 SAP Add-Ons That CIOs Will Love

This list can help increase the value of your SAP environments, courtesy of analyst Ray Wang.

CIOs looking for third-party products that simplify and enhance SAP's complex applications and tools will be happy to see software-industry analyst Ray Wang's list of 20 SAP-anxiety-reducing products that optimize everything from virtualization to Microsoft Office integration to data management, license management, application extension and usability, and more.

The SAP partner/developer ecosystem comprises a market valued at almost $79 billion and populated by about 850,000 professionals, says Wang, who's a partner with analyst firm Altimeter Group, and as the pace of business accelerates in everything from new-product development to customer engagements to internal decision-making, these third-party products can help SAP customers accelerate the time to value from their SAP systems.

For SAP, this far-flung community of developers, partners, enhancers, optimizers, and simplifiers is critical as the company itself wrestles with the need to blend the software-engineering rigor that's been its hallmark with a more customer-focused and market-oriented outlook that requires exceptional speed, nimbleness, and flexibility.

To help CIOs achieve just that, Wang has stratified the 20 members of his "SAP Optimization List" into seven categories predicated on his premise that "2010 App Strategies Should Start With Business Value". Here are the seven categories and the vendors/products he's singled out for each—check out Ray's excellent analysis for the specific value he sees in each of these vendors' approaches:
