Sometimes we don’t want companies to change. We’re comfortable with our definition of the company, and it is difficult to see what a company is up to when they change.
I wrote last Thursday about SAP and some of its new initiatives. This week is its annual SAPphire conference. I’m not there. I could be in four places, but I wound up in Cleveland at another conference. But I still see the news.
SAP began moving to the cloud with its HANNA technology. News from its conference is that it is continuing its push to cloud-based services. This includes extended mobile application support.
Manufacturing companies are still working to realize all the benefits promised with an SAP implementation. Meanwhile, the company is moving to assure its platform stays up with the latest technologies.
It will be interesting to see how practitioners exploit these technologies in the coming months.
