SAP Clears Up its ‘Muddy’ Strategy

computing, November 23, 2010 (Online)

SAP revealed its hybrid cloud and on-premises, mobile strategy at its User Group Conference in Manchester yesterday. “The UK is advanced in terms of being able to take up what we have outlined in the new strategy,” said Tim Nobel, managing director for SAP UK and Ireland. “Two or three years ago most businesses had on-premises IT. Now the conversation we have with companies is: how do you want to consume our software? The choice of on-premise, on-demand or on-device products presents companies with great opportunities,” he added. Manchester City Council recently implemented an SAP system for BlackBerry and had a positive experience. “From design to go-live took five weeks, which was fantastic for us. We went live on 1 October this year, and since then uptake of the service has increased almost tenfold,” said Paul Muir, SAP change team leader for Manchester City Council. However, the use of SAP on mobile devices has not been successful across the board, as Heineken abandoned a pilot project for its sales team. Noble agrees that usability may be what suffers as a result of standardization in service. “We have taken global best practice, and we implement this in a vanilla and straight SAP way,” said Noble.” This allows a rapid deployment solution. So instead of customers looking at eight or nine months, it would be eight or nine weeks,” he added, “However, what suffers is that customers are not able to tailor it to their needs.” [Also seen in: Computing News (UK)]
