Report by Nasdaq.com saying number of "research centers" to be reduced from 25 to 5:
Show some self-respect. Read the story, not just post.
Source please. The earlier story from Reuters that they corrected referred to "Research Centers" and stated the 25 to 5 reduction. The corrected story removes reference to "Research Centers", referring now to "Stacks" and also removes any reference to the figures 25 and 5. So, where do you see — as reported by Reuters or anyone else — that they are reducing "Computer Centers" (you mean Data Centers?) from 25 to 5? Please, please, please, don't be a shameful internet troll, posting unsubstantiated and/or incorrect information just to scare people. So. If you're not a troll, reply with the link to the story that states " SAP announced to reduce the COMPUTER centers from 25 to 5, not the dev centers." And, also, provide some background on what you believe the impact on staff will be and why. Do you have info on the specific so called "Computer Centers"? Or, perhaps, you're just the babbling mo–n I sense you are and you have absolutely nothing to back up your unnecessary and false post.
Yippie!! I guess some of the useless top management team members will be getting a pink slip in their Christmas stockings this year. They've been flying under the radar and draining the system for years without any accountability because the performance management system at SAP s—s!! I worked for SAP for 10 years with Exceeding Performance each year and still got the boot out the door!! They told me that "it is nothing personal, just business and you are just a number ...". Meanwhile, my useless manager (based in Germany) is being moved from one meaning less position to another so she can keep her job and pay! Now, where is the justice in that??!!
research centers now become COMPUTER centers? what a sleigh with name change. Since when did SAP have COMPUTER centers and nobody knows about them
The report has been updated by Reuters.
SAP announced to reduce the COMPUTER centers from 25 to 5, not the dev centers.
That will still affect staff but in far smaller numbers.
The new and absurdly inexperienced co- CEOs aren’t secret weapons by any means.
The recipes for margin improvement will be the known and proven ones: Cost cutting and Layoffs.
Yes this is true! SAP will go from 25 to 5 research centers to meet their promised profit margin that Bill McDoormat promised Wall Street. Additional Management will be cut to meet this commitment to Elliot investors. Have no fear, the early talent hero’s will save the day. Bill McDoormat did keep his word back in the April all hands. “There would be No more layoffs under my watch” 😂😂😂
