Thread regarding SAP layoffs

SAP is not an integrated ERP, it is a multi SAAS vendor

SAP is not an integrated ERP anymore although it did get its brand from ERP in the past.

SAP is a multi SAAS on multi Cloud, no coherent story unless you are so stupid to believe their marketing story, or do the commercial trade in, thinking you got some free new software in return. It will cost you much more than you think. It will cost you when your business when none of the processes work and none of the reports you want can be generated

I have friends working in customers’ IT, and they are all exploring ways to get out of SAP with its expensive maintenance.

A few I know have already switched to Workday and Salesforce.

The irony is SAP spends more on Marketing itself, to keep up its “Goodwill”, the goodwill in the books that come from over paying for all these unintegrated SAAS(s).

Let’s not kid ourselves, real goodwill comes from our history of providing a leading integrated ERP and that was our brand value.

As customers accumulate more and more bad experience , every SAP ad at the airport is no longer a reminder that they invested in a good product, it’s a reminder of how they are con into buying all these SAAS, without realising oops, they don’t flow with business scenarios, they can’t support required reporting, the disintegration means it’s not real time, and how they have to pay a bomb for HANA hardware. Their upgrade? or Downgrade?

For those who don’t believe, ask those customers who have implemented or check what’s escalated for these customers.

The irony is SAP is really protected by its NDA and customers who have too much to lose to spill the truth. But let’s see whether they buy again. Or whether they will call a tender for something else.

Am from SAP, and the integration is Powerpoint ware.

Those who say it is integrated are in LA LA land and has not stand in front of a customer who has implemented one of our SAAS.

But customers are smart. They call each other and ask nowadays. Not hoodwinked by SAP.

very expensive SAAS vendor indeed! defeats the purpose of investing in SAAS to begin with!

The thread starter has been spot-on: Due to Mc Dermotts acquisition-focussed strategy and slow to non-existent integration of the acquired offerings into the end2end business processes reflected in SAP-ECC the result is best-of-breed multi-SAAS.

SAP customers meanwhile face the same integration challenge as if going best-of-breed in the first place but likely pay an unjustified premium for going with SAP. Its sad to recognize that a once unbeatable company has completely destroyed its USP.

I have many friends still in SAP. it is true that integration is a nightmare. There are still many persons in SAP who lead teams such as Design Thinking , Enterprise Architecture , Innovation Factory, very fanciful title, and the thing is many of us can’t figure out what they are doing, they sure are paid well!

It is very true. I'm a Telugu.

SAP applications are complete mess to implement and run. Engineering has died at SAP, they are just a Sales organisation who just sells half baked products to the customers. Its a BIG BIG scam and in few years business would have horror earnings because of SAP products.
