Seismic Shifts in SAP’s Cloud?


On the heels of SAPPHIRENOW 2013, SAP issued the announcement that it would simplify its organizational structure and create a single research and development (R@D) organization to oversee innovation across the company. The new structure is expected to enable SAP to accelerate innovations powered by the SAP HANA platform for existing and new products, drive a cloud-first approach for the

In fact, conservative and bottom line-focused Calderoni seems a much better cultural fit at SAP than flamboyant Dalgaard (whom I could visualize at salesforce.com or NetSuite instead). Independent SuccessFactors was not particularly profitable and was still stitching together a number of cloud software acquisitions on disparate Read More

What Can Pure CPQ Vendors Do Now?


For a few years now, pundits have opined that the quote-to-order (Q2O)/configure, price, quote (CPQ) realm is not sustainable as a standalone enterprise software category.

JDA FOCUS 2012: A Real-time Cloud to Serve the “Connected Consumer”


It seems JDA Software, a leading supply chain management (SCM) solution vendor, is just a short step away from being able to manage the entire SCM process.
