At SAPPHIRE, SAP has declared it wants to deliver simplicity to the enterprise via cloud computing, in-memory analytics, and mobility. Here’s my quick take on what they need to do to achieve this:
Mobility: SAP is in a strong position thanks to its Sybase acquisition. Today, SAP unveiled the latest generation of the Sybase Unwired Platform, which the company says makes creating and managing mobile SAP applications significantly easier. This is an important step for SAP, as it needs to complete its transition off the NetWeaver mobile platform and offer customers one, streamlined platform – Sybase Unwired – for brining apps to mobile devices.
Cloud computing, in-memory analytics, and mobility were the buzzwords at Day 1 of SAPPHIRE, but judging by Co-CEO Jim Hagemann Snabe’s own words, SAP is focused on one thing: simplicity.
“I actually believe that is one of the biggest tasks in the industry,” said Snabe, speaking to SiliconANGLE founder John Furrier and chief Wikibon analyst David Vellante live in theCube from the show floor. “Over the years we’ve added complexity and now it’s all about dramatically reducing the complexity. [But] not by solving simple problems. We need to continue to solve the complex problems of business, but we need to add the dimension of simplicity.”
