SAP, for many organisations, used to refer to SAP R/3 and this was all that existed in the SAP landscape. However, in the last decade, the scale of the SAP landscape has exponentially increased for many organisations, so much so that its maintenance has become a significant overhead.
The challenge is twofold: how do organisations maintain existing systems and, at the same time, find ways to use SAP technology to innovate for competitive advantage? It is necessary to drive down costs and at the same time keep systems up to date - to retain support and to ensure staff retention and interest. At first glance, these two objectives might seem to be opposed.
The new tools available as part of the SAP NetWeaver suite allow better management for a lower cost of ownership. At the same time, innovations are available in the NetWeaver suite for better Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) compliance and rapid deployment of composite applications - joining up your SAP and non-SAP systems into optimised, process-centric interfaces.

In the past, SAP released applications on different technologies. Now, SAP NetWeaver underpins all SAP technologies and is the "Basis" for all of the Business Suite applications including SAP ERP, SAP CRM, SAP SRM, SAP PLM, SAP BW and SAP Solution Manager. This means a single technical team can underpin all of the SAP NetWeaver suite, providing support for a common technology platform.
