Can someone explain me the difference and usage of Best Practise Packages?

Hai Friends,

I am new to SAP product development based on sap best practices.

I need clarification on the different cases and usage scenarios of Baseline, industry and Cross-industry packages in SAP BestPractice.

My Doubts:

<b>1) In which case we use which package?

2) If Baseline package and Cross-industry packages are common to all industries what is the difference between them?

3) Is there any need to use baseline package in all solutions?

4) If we use Cross-industry or industry package, we need baseline package or not?</b>

Could anyone clarify my doubts by explaining it in a simpler way?

    Dear Karthik,

    Small and midsize companies face the challenge of realizing comprehensive mySAP Business Suite solutions that are affordable, simple to understand, and quickly implemented. SAP Best Practices provide a sound foundation for prepacked ready-to-use solutions for SMBs. Of course, SAP Best Practices can also be used by large enterprises that need rapid installation or that want to create a corporate template for their subsidiaries.

    For more information, click following URL; (to get need SAP Servicemarket place Logon and password)

    SAP Best Practices include a clear methodology based on a comprehensible step-by-step approach; extensive reusable documentation that you can use for self-study, evaluation, as well as for project team and end-user training; and complete preconfiguration settings that give you everything you need to run SMB specific key processes "out of the box" with minimal installation effort. The configuration is fully documented including preconfigured business processes, training material, user roles, data conversion tools, and test catalogs. It is built using the latest technology, so you can adapt it quickly and easily.

    You can choose from the following kinds of package:

    <b>SAP Best Practices Baseline Package</b> provides generic business scenarios that can be used as the basis for creating a mySAP All-in-One solution independent of the focus of that particular solution.

    <b>SAP Best Practices industry packages</b> are designed to meet industry-specific needs, for example SAP Best Practices for Retail.

    <b>SAP Best Practices cross-industry packages</b> provides predefined business scenarios that focus on the areas of customer relationship management, supply chain management, and business intelligence.

    Hope this info will be useful.
