The global and independent platform for the SAP community.

E3 Category: Hausmitteilung

Individual and public comments on the SAP community find their place here. Everything that needs to be said once should also be documented. The community is a community of values in which an open, transparent and unprejudiced discourse is conducted by us.

What is cloud computing? A comment I made to the effect that SAP BRIM (Billing and Revenue Management) is a highly complex and successful SAP application, but is only available in its entirety as an on-prem solution, prompted a Microsoft employee to object. Who is right in this case?
What's going on with SAP? The mood in the community and among SAP customers is persistently bad, however the share price is going through the roof. It is reasonable to assume that shareholders and financial analysts know something that we in the SAP community do not. Here is one possible answer.
E3mag.com has received a surprisingly large number of articles about SAP licenses this past month. We have been observing this growing need for discussion for several months. Licenses are becoming a key factor for S/4 conversion.
Oona Horx Strathern's new book was published in September. It has the cheerful title “Kindness Economy” and is a counter-project to egoism and capitalism. Rather than criticize, it presents humanistic options.
My annual house note from Salzburg from the Festival is this time inspired by the outstanding violinist and recording artist Patricia Kopatchinskaja and her album "What's Next Vivaldi?" in a quality far beyond any CD.

For SAP, customer satisfaction is a very important part of the business model. After all, the very first SAP system was developed on the customer's hardware. Since then, many ideas from users have found their way into SAP's ERP.
A recent publication by Manager Magazin lists the favorite employers of young engineers in Germany. SAP comes in a distant 39th place. What's going on there?
Hardly imaginable: restrained joy about a new get-together with the SAP community. The very successful CCC/CCoE Forum will be continued this year in Salzburg. It is an important basic event that can form the basis for a successful S/4 conversion.
SAP, like the Catholic Church, is clearly in favor of Aristotle's geocentric worldview, while the rest of the world is probably more inclined to the heliocentric worldview, also called the Copernican worldview.
SAP CEO Klein gave a very remarkable interview to a colleague from Handelsblatt in Davos at the World Economic Summit. He argued convincingly for face-to-face meetings and face-to-face events.
The value of a message can be measured by the relevance and credibility of the source. If S/4 is not an option, then Hana is also of little relevance. If cloud computing is set, then statements from hardware manufacturers are less credible.
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.
