Progress Report - SAP Cloud Analyst Summit 2019 - Intelligent Suite and Moving to SAP Tech Stack
"Let’s focus on the good news first: The SAP Intelligent Suite messaging, unveiled at the very first meeting of this group one year ago – is still the true north for S/4HANA, C/4HANA and the sisters. It takes time to build product and keeping the vision and strategy the same is vital for delivering successful enterprise products. I may have missed the plans on the integration side. SAP is creating a distributed system landscape and this time owns the integration between these automation islands. At Sapphire 2018 executives were aware of owning this and committed to it. By now its time to see more specifics on how SAP wants to enable that integration for its customers."

Your Business Blueprint Should Dictate Your SAP S/4HANA Implementation – Not the Other Way Around
"If you talk to a sales rep from SAP or a system integrator such as Deloitte, Accenture, or Capgemini, they will tell you the opposite. They will say that SAP “best practices” should define your business and that your people should just change to adopt to software functionality. They will also push you to implement SAP as quickly as possible – not because it’s best for your business, but because it’s best for SAP and the system integrator."

How to Avoid Losing Control of Your SAP S/4HANA Transformation
"One of the biggest mistakes is to hand complete control of the project over to your system integrator. Yes, they probably have a deeper competency in SAP than your team does, but you need to be the one to manage their resources, expectations, and deliverables. They should report to your project team rather than managing the overall project. And if things aren’t working out and can’t be remediated, don’t be afraid to fire your SAP system integrator."

Musings - SAP democratizes Product Development - what does it mean for Customers?
"When SAP announced the Qualtrics acquisition I joked with McDermott on a briefings call, how he felt as head of product. He hesitated a moment, then laughed it off…. But the new reality at SAP is now that falls into three large product development areas – something that has not happened in over 20 years. "

News Analysis - SAP HCM On-Premise Option for SAP S/4HANA - or is this S/4HCM? - by @holgermu
"MyPOV – Good for SAP to acknowledge customer reality. Vendors can strategize and build on product as much as they want – they need customers to follow. When they don’t follow – later more – investments have to be adjusted. The ‘some SAP customers’ are the first 1000 (and numbers growing) SAP S/4HANA on premises customers. The foundation of what SAP wants to be the new ERP suite of the 21st century, it’s 21st century version of R/3."

News Analysis - Microsoft and SAP join forces to give customers a trusted path to digital transformation in the cloud - by @holgermu
MyPOV – No surprise – Microsoft and SAP will drink their own champagne and use each other products / services… the emphasis on clear roadmap maybe some self-reflection on the fact that there has not been too much roadmap traction in the past 18 months. Good to see co-created and supported offerings and services – that’s what prospects and customers expect from both vendors when they partner."

News Analyses Roundup - SAP's September Tech Announcements - SAP doubles down on technology
"On the concern side, SAP is coming late to many of these moves, but better late – than never. Extra kudos for the ABAP beta – we have asked SAP for many years about the future of ABAP developers. If you lose a developer community it is always hard to make up (look no further than IBM with Rational). And SAP decided to build the road before the destination with EIM. Ok. But SAP needs a SAP native (or certified) BigData / Hadoop capability."

Event Report - SAP Sapphire 2017 - All in on Leonardo, but wait there is more... - by @holgermu
"SAP & Hadoop – it remains rocky – A regular reader knows the concerns I have articulated many times with SAP – the lack of support for ‘spinning rust’ – aka HDD, aka ultra large cheap storage of digital information. Literally every next generation application scenario that creates digital disruption runs on Hadoop and uses MapReduce to understand data. I ask Plattner the question every time I can at Sapphire and got mildly optimistic, when Plattner agreed SAP needs a story here (after, body language doesn’t lie and an audible of then CTO Clark on ‘social networks’)."

Bigdata capabilities, PaaS functionality and Machine Learning are quickly becoming table stakes for enterprises, so speed is of the essence."

The new container and BYOL developer options for HANA and HCP stand out in my view."

While it is fair to point out that many users will only work with the respective BI offering of their functional silo, the cross function insight and oversight is one of the key value propositions that SAP (as a suite vendor) brings to the table."

Event Report - SAP Sapphire 2016 - Top 3 Positives & Concerns: SAP changes - probably for the better - by @holgermu
" In the latest move, SAP announced a broad partnership with Microsoft, which on the IaaS side meant that SAP would support Azure for both HANA and S/4HANA deployments (read my analysis here). For a company that needs every $ from cloud to satisfy the financial projections, a remarkable and courageous move. Probably a wise one, too – as SAP may have realized that it cannot build the next generation IaaS platform with the know how available in house."

More from SAP to come but this too me was the (a bit geeky, ok) the #1 takeaway from Sapphire."

Four S/4HANA Questions for SAP Customer Chief @robertenslin - by @chriskanaracus

The stakes could not be higher. SAP has called S/4HANA the most important product launch in company history. Most SAP customers would likely agree with that degree of significance."

S/4HANA: What's the impact on HR? - by @lukemarson
"In short, there are not a host of changes for HR customers. The focus of S/4HANA is firmly on the ERP and Financials area, with added functionality for HR coming from existing HCM solutions. A simplified data model and planned packaged integrations are going to make it easier for Employee Central customers to integrate with S/4HANA, but SAP ERP HCM customers are going to have to build their own integrations or consider a migration to SuccessFactors Employee Central."

S4 HANA: It’s not R/3, and it’s not 1992 either (part I) - by @josheac
"There’s a lot to unpack from SAP’s S4 HANA announcement of last week, but if I could only highlight the essence of what the announcement means for SAP and its customers, it’s this: SAP needs to make sure every customer understands how the versions of SAP they are running today will lead them to S4 HANA, in what time frame and at what cost. And SAP has to make sure every new customer understands what it means to run existing processes at significantly greater speed, as well as run net new processes they never were able to run before, before they’re asked to sign on."
