Since starting in the 1970s, SAP has developed deep experience across a range of industries; it makes sense that the company's goal with SAP Business One is to provide the best solution for as many business types as possible. But no software developer can create the depth of product that works well for every type of business, so SAP’s large enterprise products are designed for customization. SAP Business One has deep functionality ideal for vertically enhanced integration with software from partnered software solution providers (SSPs). SAP Business One is both adaptable and easy to integrate with.

SAP released the initial software development kit (SDK) for SAP Business One in 2004 and expands the integration points with every new product release while also making the integration tools easier to use.
