Since the 1970s, SAP has developed deep experience across multiple industries. Its goal for SAP Business One is to provide the best solution for as many businesses as possible.  

But because no software developer can create a product that works well for every business, SAP’s enterprise products are designed for customization. SAP Business One’s functionality is ideal for vertically enhanced integration with software from partnered software solution providers (SSPs), as it is both easy to integrate with and adaptable. 

After releasing SAP Business One’s initial software development kit (SDK) in 2004, SAP now expands the integration points and makes them easier to use with every new product release.
