SAN MATEO, Calif., Oct. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the
industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP and omnichannel
commerce software suites, today announced the SAP Business ByDesign Sunset
Migration Program, a new migration program for companies running SAP Business
ByDesign. Companies that are fed up with SAP's repeated re-architecting,
re-positioning and ultimate decision not to significantly invest in the
development of Business ByDesign can now turn to NetSuite's proven cloud-based
business management system, currently in use by more than 16,000 organizations
and subsidiaries worldwide. To learn more about the program, visit

While SAP has recently stated in published reports that it is cutting back on
the development of Business ByDesign, the cloud ERP product it first brought
to market in 2007, NetSuite continues to invest heavily in its leading cloud
ERP platform. Under the Business ByDesign Sunset Migration Program, Business
ByDesign customers in good standing are eligible for one free year of
subscription and free data migration to speed their transition to NetSuite.

Initially launched in 2007, only to be pulled back and re-launched in 2010,
Business ByDesign never lived up to the lofty goals of 10,000 customers and $1
billion in revenue SAP set for the project.

"SAP co-CEO Bill McDermott once stated that SAP would see how tough NetSuite
was when he threw Business ByDesign like a 99 mile per hour fastball at us.
Now, SAP is seeing how tough their customers are by pulling the plug on
Business ByDesign," said NetSuite CEO Zach Nelson. "We are ready to turn SAP
customers' pain into delight by enabling them to experience the benefits of
the most widely used cloud business suite, backed by NetSuite, the industry's
leading vendor of cloud ERP software suites."

For companies that have already invested heavily in SAP's antiquated
on-premise architecture at headquarters, NetSuite OneWorld for SAP is also
available, offering a proven method for enjoying the benefits of cloud
computing at subsidiaries or distributed business units via a two-tier ERP
model. Companies running NetSuite OneWorld at subsidiaries can roll up data to
their SAP system at the corporate level with SuiteCloud Connect for SAP, a
prebuilt integration based on industry standard technologies including SOAP
(Web Services), JavaScript, ODBC and CSV.

Today, more than 16,000 companies and subsidiaries depend on NetSuite to run
complex, mission-critical business processes globally in the cloud. Since its
inception in 1998, NetSuite has established itself as the leading provider of
enterprise-class cloud financials/ERP suites for divisions of large
enterprises and mid-sized organizations seeking to upgrade their antiquated
client/server ERP systems. NetSuite excels at streamlining business operations
as demonstrated in a recent Gartner study naming NetSuite as the fastest
growing financial management software vendor on a global basis. NetSuite
continues its success in delivering the best cloud ERP/financials suites to
businesses around the world, enabling them to lower IT costs significantly
while increasing productivity, as the global adoption of the cloud is
