SAP Nation 2.0
 

an empire in disarray

Authored by Vinnie Mirchandani

In this fast-paced sequel to SAP Nation, author Vinnie Mirchandani updates many of the dimensions of the SAP economy, as big as that of Ireland. The context: In February 2015, SAP announced its next-generation ERP product, S/4HANA. Since then, SAP and its partners have relentlessly marketed the tag word "Simple." When you factor in SAP's growing product portfolio (much acquired, but not integrated), the customizations and satellite applications at its 300,000 customers, and its ecosystem of 13,000 partners, a different word comes to mind: "Sprawl."

Will S/4 reduce this sprawl? Will S/4 allow SAP to better compete in the cloud? Will the S/4 rollout mirror that of other next-gen enterprise products over the last two decades? How can customers protect themselves in an economy where new products often result in premiums and overruns?

Anyone with interest in SAP - as competitor, customer, employee, investor, partner - will benefit from pondering the questions in the book. Customers will also profit from its nine strategies to optimize environments on their own while they wait for the SAP promise of Simple.
