SAP for Defense & Security
Whether you manage a military force, a national security agency, border protection, emergency management, or a law enforcement authority, the SAP for Defense & Security solution offers real-time resource information so command-and-control personnel can continuously determine the status of operational readiness. You can better plan and support deployed operations by using a range of integrated planning functions for all resources, including human resources, materiel, infrastructure, and finances. SAP for Defense & Security enables you to comprehensively evaluate costs and activities, and to present new options for collaboration and data exchange among organizations. The solution offers total asset visibility, from factory to foxhole and back again, so service personnel always know what assets are in storage, in transit, and in process. You can more easily map your assets against your liabilities, resulting in more efficient and accurate planning. SAP for Defense & Security helps increase the percentage of the budget that is allocated to operating missions rather than to logistics and administration, thus enabling you to optimize your financial resources. You can make the solution interoperable and integrate it horizontally with military systems, thus providing information from multiple sources and helping personnel make the right decisions in critical situations. SAP for Defense & Security is powered by the SAP NetWeaver platform, which means that you can make the most of your existing functions by using enterprise services, protecting your current IT investments, and reducing the total cost of ownership.
