Business One is yet another attempt by SAP to penetrate the low end of the ERP market given the size and complexity of SAP itself. There is also SAP All in One. Gospel according to SAP is as follows:

1. If enterprise is at the low end use Business one ( I could be wrong, but I think limit is 25 million or less in yearly sales)
2. If enterprise is in the middle ( 25-250 million use All in One which is a preconfigured regular SAP)
3. Above that regular SAP

Eventhough it is sold under SAP banner, Business one was not developed by SAP. They got the software by purchasing an Israeli consulting firm. So, what you know of SAP will very likely not translate well when it comes to B1. In fact the founder of this consulting firm Shai Agassi went on to become CEO of SAP itself for a number of years. There was a big push for Business One under his watch.

Now that Shai Agassi has left SAP and gone onto selling electric cars. I wonder if Business One truly has a future in the SAP universe.
