The book does give some justification for why they're useful in the ERP systems context but web services are not magic.
David Salahi
Its a little non-computer friendly for a "For Dummies" statement but I got it for I am literate, yet it could be more friendly, Just saying!!!
SiRod Crenshaw
SAP can be a bit overwhelming and using this tool is a very big help bringing this program into a system that it is meant to offer.

Format: Paperback
The concept of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) has been around a long time. With the increasing power of computers and the reluctance of people to pay the huge amounts of money demanded for their software by the big suppliers (such as SAP) smaller packages have been developed. mySAP ERP consists of software in four areas that most corporations have needs. These include: Financials, Operations, Corporate Services, and Human Capital Management.

While a basic description of mySAP ERP can be gotten off of the SAP web site, it's pretty sales oriented in nature. This book is written to give the beginning user a good introduction to what you (as a CEO or IT manager of a company) might expect to get out of an ERP package.

This book is an introduction to what an ERP package can do for you, written in the traditional 'For Dummies,' style. It's not loaded down with technical jargon, it is not a detailed instruction manual of how to use the software. It's a well written introduction that gives the big picture.

I have used and read many of the "Dummies" manuals for software and SAP is a good system to learn some extra tips and user tools from. SAP is a very in depth program that learning all the extras that this system can offer is plus for any individual. This book has many extras that were not given in the much training that it took to learn this program. SAP can be a bit overwhelming and using this tool is a very big help bringing this program into a system that it is meant to offer. Great book.

Format: Paperback
This book covers different parts of SAP in a concise manner. But it is not a technical book at all! Provides a nice overview of the history of SAP, NetWeaver, and platform components. The mySAP ERP (which I was looking forward to reading) is all in one chapter.

Not detailed at all. Good overview of many pieces of SAP. It is really for beginners/day-to-day users of ERP systems.

I can't think of anyone who would find this book very helpful. I've heard good things about the "Dummies" series, but having read 50% of this book I realize now that the "Dummie" is the author. The book lacks a logical flow and most importantly never actually explains the SAP architecture. Instead it essentially just outlines features.

Unless you're Rainman you'll never benefit from tis book since it's impossible to remember the hundreds of features without understanding the underlying architecture.

Updated: I just started reading "Discover SAP" by Nancy Muir and Ian Kimbell - this book is superb and exactly what anyone interesting in learning more about SAP should read. There is no comparison between these two books - save yourself time and money and go straight to this one

Format: Paperback
This book is basically a high-level, marketing-oriented white paper. I don't think anybody should pay for this kind of stuff. If you want to impress your colleagues with SAP's Enterprise Services Architecture (ESA), it's OK to read it. It's SAP's blueprint for the future. If you are a technical person and wants to learn something useful, this is a waste money.

Format: Paperback
The challenge with any ERP book is for it to be informative without being boring; technical with out talking over the reader's heads and thorough in its breadth of ERP. Whie I am not a fan of the "Dummy" books, the first few chapters are good for those who have no idea what ERP even means.

For the die-hard ERP project manager, however, there is not much in here that you do not already know or have not experienced. Some of the advice it gives I learned on projects myself, but other pieces of insight I would not suggest. If you are doing ERP and need to create strategy and work with developers, stakeholders and architects, there are better manuals out there.

Also, I found it to be a bit light on the project management side, since I feel that HOW you execute a plan is sometimes more important than WHAT you execute. It is all about perception and the successful ERP project is as much about generating interest and excitement as it is about solving problems.

No I t was note at all what I was looking for. I was looking more for a practical use from a supply point, not a managment point of view.

I expected some second level description, but it never came down the business benefits level, and making many unkeepable promises to innocent CxOs. Salesmen pitch.
