Item description for Retail Information Systems Based on SAP Products by Jorg Becker, Wolfgang Uhr, Oliver Vering & Lars Ehlers...
Concentration tendencies, globalization, increasing cost pressure and well-informed customers all make up the hard competition faced by today's businesses. The "right" products, a successful market image, a strong positioning between suppliers and customers, efficient logistics and optimum organization structures contribute to a company's survival. Achieving this goal requires flexible information and communication systems that are fully adaptable to the specific situation. Modern retail information systems are not bound by organization borders but support both business partner cooperation and electronic commerce. This book presents the architecture of retail information systems, as well as the functions of SAP Retail, and in so doing links modern retail management with the implementation strategies based on innovative software systems.

Reviews - What do customers think about Retail Information Systems Based on SAP Products?
COMPLEX AND NOT TOO CLEAR, BUT ONLY TITLE ON SUBJECT Jan 25, 2005
As a user of SAP at a retail company, I was excited to see a title written on SAP specifically for retail. Retail is not one of the traditional industries focused on by SAP and its system shows a strong bias for manufacturing, so I was hoping this book would shed some light on the capabilities of the system that were being underappreciated at my company. Well, the result was that I was quite dissapointed after reading through it. First, the book seems to have been written in German and translated (poorly) to English, because the language is very choppy. Besides, there book lays out a grand vision of the architecture of the system without giving the user much idea on implementation or actual utility of functions. If you are ready to invest a few million on new developments, maybe this book is for you, but if you are looking for small improvements and ideas for medium-term development, this book takes too much of a birds-eye view to be useful.
