One step forward and two steps back
Many topics are undisputed and correct: digital transformation, DB release change to Hana, S/4, BW/4 and C/4, as well as cloud computing with SuccessFactors, Concur and Ariba, experience management with Qualtrics, etc.
But the stormy advance into a new ERP era began for the SAP community when the world economy, globalization and international logistics chains were perfect and successful.
Home offices and a focus on local supply and production capacities have destroyed many concepts and led to a rethink. Does the existing SAP customer need Ariba for global trade, Concur for global travel, S/4 and Hana for global logistics and production?
No one yet knows whether the digital transformation of SAP's existing customers is two steps forward and the corona pandemic is one step back, or vice versa:
Perhaps sticking to AnyDB, Abap and Suite 7 would be a successful interim step until 2030. In any case, SAP owes the community many answers.
