What analysts predict for the IT scene is tradition for the SAP community. Schizophrenic thinking is an ERP survival strategy for the existing SAP customer.
In recent years, users and administrators of database systems have been repeatedly confronted with a new technology called "in-memory".
SAP licensing presents those responsible with a variety of challenges. Compliance aspects are just as relevant as economic efficiency.
You could also call it Mega Data, which is coming with IoT and Industry 4.0. Unfortunately, SAP only has Hana and S/4 in mind - the Hadoop interface Vora falls short. We existing customers need more open and comprehensive solutions - or a new IoT partner.
By its very nature, SAP is a European company. Most of the procedures, rules and algorithms of SAP's finance and controlling up to S/4 Finance were invented and developed in Europe.
It's been a nearly three-year discourse on whether Hana is a disruptive innovation. Probably not. What is certain is that SAP's current business model makes shareholders happy, but that SAP's actions are causing lasting damage to the community.
When we talk about e-commerce, we almost inevitably think of the established B2C platforms of Amazon, Kaufhof or Otto. With SAP Hybris and Sana Commerce, online commerce is reaching its next evolutionary stage.

One question always comes up during discussions: What concrete support is offered for Hana deployment in terms of simplified operations? The answer: plenty from the Linux side.
Work on SAP Basis is crucial for successful S/4 conversion. This gives the so-called Competence Center strategic importance among SAP's existing customers. Regardless of the operating model of an S/4 Hana, topics such as automation, monitoring, security, application lifecycle management, and data management are the basis for the operative S/4 operation. For the second time already, E3 Magazine is hosting a summit in Salzburg for the SAP community to get comprehensive information on all aspects of S/4 Hana groundwork. With an exhibition, expert presentations, and plenty to talk about, we again expect numerous existing customers, partners, and experts in Salzburg. E3 Magazine invites you to Salzburg for learning and exchange of ideas on June 5 and 6, 2024.
