Who We Are

For more than 10 years, Germany-based E-3 Magazine has covered the development of the SAP-Community in the DACH-Region. In 2017, we are bringing the best independent news outlet for SAP related topics to the global stage.

Closely connected to IT professionals from programmers and engineers all the way up C-level executives as well as researchers, analysts and academics worldwide, we strive to provide a unique scope of topics for our readers – extensive, on point and on time.

Positioning ourselves as an independent magazine also means covering both sides of the coin. There is a lot of variety in the SAP community and we want to make sure to give every part of that community a voice.  In short: We want to make sure that valuable information for your daily experience as an SAP user gets through to you – no matter how „small“ or „big“ the author may be.


Our Mission

E-3 Magazine is a special-interest magazine devoted to SAP software and related topics. It’s a scene’zine covering business and technical solutions in today’s SAP marketplace. E-3 articles add to and expand on the information supplied by SAP itself. Its ultimate goal is to help readers achieve greater success with ERP, Business Suite, NetWeaver, SolMan, Hana and S/4 etc. – individually, business-wise and technically.

The Webzine e3zine.com aims to cover the whole of the value-adding chain in companies, because this is the biggest challenge for the future. The information it delivers enhances competent and successful use of the integrated standard software ERP, SoH or S/4 in building efficient extended enterprises. E-3 Magazine provides the map to explore the world of SAP.

E-3 targets all kinds of user, from IT beginners to computer center supervisors. E-3 offers something for everyone in clear language, deliberately avoiding tech speak. Detailed research, conducted by skilled journalists and analysts, offers new insights for end-users and experts alike. Lively and accurate journalism gives readers broad knowledge and new insights into ERP/ECC 6.0, Business Suite, S/4, Hana, HEC and HCP and its working environment.


High-Tech to Provide You Quality Content

Great journalism is our mission, but that is far from the end of the story: We are also trying to provide the best user experience possible while browsing our articles. Our online-team is focused on delivering that experience by a large list of cutting-edge technology running in the background.

Sounds like an exaggeration? We are not limiting ourselves to constantly improve on things you see at the front end like load times and availability worldwide.

Among other things, we are for example running semantic analysis in the background to provide you with more than just a few suggested articles from the same category.  There’s more to be gained from your valuable reading time if you can get suggestions on the same topic but maybe also from a different perspective! How about getting a user report or success story in addition to the analyst’s report you just clicked on? Here, the possibilities are truly limitless.

To make sure you are always getting the content you want within the shortest possible time, we have put our site on a state-of-the-art Content Delivery Network. (CDN). Regardless of whether you are in Asia, Oceania, Europe, the Americas or Africa: you can always take e3zine.com with you!

After all, it is about matching the global scope of information we provide, with the global scope of the work you do every day.

Editorial Guidelines

Some of our readers wonder why certain naming conventions that are standard in the industry do not apply for us.

We are aware that a lot of our readers are spending a significant part of their day in front of screens, mobile devices, tablets. Not only does that take a toll on our reader’s eyes, it also makes focusing on a very specific, in-depth report hard – no matter how good the article may be.

Companies big and small often invest thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours into exploiting the full potential of the ASCII code in order to make their product names, logos, press releases, etc. look as unique and recognizable as possible.

This may be great when placing said logos, products, etc. on an advertising wall next to a highway, where potential customers are driving by at 60 mph, however, when faced with large bits of text over the internet, the reader often does not appreciate the effort nearly as much as originally intended.

Over-use of capital letters, a myriad of abbreviations coupled with often complex topics can make reading well researched articles a quite exhausting task.

As a platform for information and community building, our value is primarily in getting our content across. That means other goals (i.e. marketing specifc) will always be placed back to achieve this priority

We have hence set forth the following editorial guidelines when it comes to creating our content:

If you say it like a name, we write it like a name. Best example would be SAP’s Hana platform. We all pronounce Hana as if it was a name, hence there is only a capital letter at the beginning despite the official product name: SAP HANA®.

In contrast, nobody would say Sap (as in sap-ling for instance) when talking about the German company, hence SAP (pronounced S-A-P) will keep its capitalization.

This is a tried and tested journalistic approach to providing a better reading experience and has also been in practice with large news outlets and magazines for many years around the globe.

In addition, whenever legally possible we will remove © and ® to the same end.

Of course, this whole matter is at the discretion of our editors: It would hardly make any sense to let go of the capitalization of names that otherwise denominate different things.

Think of the US Navy’s SEAL Team for example.

Lastly, we try to avoid including designations for legal forms of organization such as Inc., Ltd., etc. for the reasons already outlined above.


We are in our first year, so we have decided to provide interested advertisers with an early-contributor model only available until January 1st 2018.

Advertising on our platform will be charged only with a contribution towards necessary expenses and includes a time-based model until January 1st 2018.

General terms and conditions of the customer which are inconsistent with or deviate from the General Terms and Conditions of B4Bmedia.net shall not become an integral part of the contract, unless B4Bmedia.net expressly approves of their validity on a case-by-case basis.

2. Advertising orders are assigned to a certain medium of B4Bmedia.net and contain a diagram of the advertisements for booked issues. Orders for advertisements and third-party supplements, which are to be published exclusively in certain numbers, certain issues or in certain places of the medium, must be received in due time by B4Bmedia.net, i.e. by the closing deadline according to the booking order, so that the customer can be notified in good time before the closing date if an order can or cannot be executed. Cancellations or postponements of advertisements shall be communicated no later than 2 weeks before the official closing date of the respective issue. If the deadline is not met, B4Bmedia.net can claim payment for the reservation of the advertising space.

3. Advertisements, which are not recognizable as advertisements due to their editorial design, can be identified as such by B4Bmedia.net through the use of the word “Advertisement”. The customer bears sole responsibility for the content and the legal admissibility of the text and the image documents provided for the insertion. The customer is responsible for indemnifying B4Bmedia.net from third party claims against B4Bmedia.net which arise on the basis of the execution of the order, even when it was to be cancelled. B4Bmedia.net is not obligated to check orders and advertisements to see whether they infringe third party rights.

4.

In this case, B4Bmedia.net also has the right to remove individual content or individual passages of the text from the advertisement without prior announcement. In such a case the customer cannot assert any claims against B4Bmedia.net. Orders for supplements are binding on B4Bmedia.net only after a specimen supplement has been submitted to and approved by B4Bmedia.net. The customer accepts sole responsibility for all legal consequences resulting from the content of advertising orders or an advertising message and shall indemnify B4Bmedia.net from any and all third-party claims, particularly in case of claims for damages or counterstatement. The customer shall also assume all the costs incurred by B4Bmedia.net for legal defense.

6. The customer can claim a payment reduction or a clean replacement advertisement to be published for a completely or partially illegible, incorrect or incomplete publication of the advertisement, subject to the provision in section 5, but only to the extent to which the purpose of the advertisement was adversely affected. If B4Bmedia.net allows a reasonable grace period set for a clean replacement to elapse or if the replacement advertisement is not clean, then the customer has a right to payment reduction or cancellation of the order, provided that the purpose of the advertisement was adversely affected. Claims for damages are limited to compensation of the damage up to the amount of the advertisement fee paid. This does not apply to any intent and gross negligence on the part of B4Bmedia.net. Liability for gross negligence is limited to compensation of the foreseeable damage up to the amount of the advertisement fee paid. Legal liability for personal injuries and liability based on the German Product Liability Law remains unaffected by this; the defense of contributory negligence remains open for B4Bmedia. net. Further claims for damages, regardless of the reason, are excluded, also if the order was placed by telephone.

7. B4Bmedia.net takes account of error corrections of which it is informed by the deadline set.. If the customer does not reply to the transmitted  correction by the deadline set, the customer’s approval of the correction is considered given. If any faults in the advertisement cannot be immediately recognized, but are only noticed during the printing process, the advertiser has no claims against B4Bmedia. net in the event of inadequate advertising quality. Claims against B4Bmedia.net based on faulty reproduction are excluded if corrections were notified by telephone.

8. If the website is not available as the advertisment is to be published, the customer has no right to cancel advertising orders.

9. If the customer has not prepaid, the invoice is sent immediately, as far as possible 14 days after publication of the advertisement.
