Q&A: SAP co-CEO Jim Hagemann Snabe on SAP strategy

Computer Weekly (UK), December 07, 2010 (Print)

Computer Weekly interviewed SAP co-CEO Jim Hagemann Snabe on occasion of the UK & Ireland SAP User Group Conference 2010 in Manchester in late November. Asked how SAP’s new strategy is going and what have been the biggest successes and challenges, Snabe says that the “interesting innovation path” that SAP is on is also a “transformational one.” He emphasizes that SAP has “seen very positive feedback from customers and employees. The excitement is about the fact that SAP can become an innovator again.” He also stresses that SAP has delivered SAP Business ByDesign and “HANA, [hi-performance analytical appliance], which is the most immediate breakthrough that we have in technology.” The challenges facing SAP are mainly of a cultural dimension, such as how to speed up innovation while at the same time increasing demand and quality. Commenting on how things are going with the integration of products from the acquisition of BusinessObjects and Sybase, Snabe says, “We brought the tools together on one platform. So that is a big step forward and I believe with the coming release people will really see that the divide between analytics and transactional has minimized.”

Why Can’t ERP Software Be More Like Pandora Radio?

CIO, November 10, 2010 (Online)

CIO reporter Tom Wailgum says he recently had an epiphany while listening to Pandora Radio, an Internet radio service that allows its users to create their own “radio stations” based on their individual musical tastes. The service eases users into new artists and titles by never veering too far from the familiar. And, Wailgum adds, “it’s so darn easy to use that ‘change’ doesn’t feel like ‘change’ at all. Even though change is, indeed, happening.” Wailgum says using Pandora makes him contrast it with how companies roll out enterprise software to their users today. Specifically, Wailgum points to the “troubling experience” of Lumber Liquidators as it rolled out SAP’s ERP software. CEO Jeffrey Griffiths noted that employees’ difficulties adjusting to the new software caused a “weak” third quarter. But, Wailgum says, just think of how different a user’s experience would be if ERP software could work like Pandora Radio. Wailgum suggests a similar “ERP Genome Project” to better understand how users work, how to introduce new software, and what will keep their interest.
