[session] SAP in the Public Cloud | @CloudExpo @Ocean9inc #Cloud #Analytics #Security

SAP in the Public Cloud - Between a Rock and a Hard Place? Managing mission-critical SAP systems and landscapes has never been easy. Add public cloud with its myriad of powerful cloud native services and this may not change any time soon. Public cloud offers exciting new possibilities for enterprise workloads.

OData Support in SQLAnywhere 16.0

OData is quickly becoming the Lingua Franca for data exchange over the web.  The OData standard defines a protocol and a language structure for issuing queries and updates to remote data sources, including (but not limited to) relational databases, file systems, content management systems, and traditional web sites.  It builds upon existing Web technologies, like HTTP and RESTful web services, the Atom Publishing Protocol (AtomPub), XML, and Javascript Object Notation (JSON). SAP and Sybase iAnywhere released SQL Anywhere version 16 in March 2013, and it had many cool new features. This blog post will cover one specific enhancement, the new support for OData access to SA databases. Note:  SA 16.0 is the follow-on release to version 12.0.1. There was no version 13, 14, or 15. Background SQL Anywhere actually introduced support for SOAP and REST-based web services ba... (more)

SAP Takes Another Run at Cloud Computing

SAP Session at Cloud Expo SAP, which flubbed its first billion-dollar run at the cloud, an adventure it's still trying to salvage, has taken another tack on SaaS and released a hosted project codenamed 12sprints to public beta. The widgetry is supposed to be for collaborative decision-making and SAP is touting it as one of a kind. It envisions teams inviting people inside or outside an organization and employing interactive methods for brainstorming and feedback. 12sprints integrates components of BusinessObjects' Explorer so users can analyze data and apply the findings to the decision-making framework. SAP will offer both free and paid versions when 12sprints becomes generally available. SAP has also reached out to the 2.0 Adoption Council, a bunch of 2.0 thought leaders from large enterprises, as a strategic research partner to figure out what to do with the thi... (more)

SAP Takes on Salesforce.com

SAP co-CEO Jim Hagemann Snabe told the Wall Street Journal in an interview at Cebit in Germany that the German software company isn't in discussions to get sold. The paper says there have been "persistent market rumors of an impending deal," with IBM or HP considered potential buyers. Meanwhile, SAP previewed its promised subscription-based Chatter-like Sales OnDemand software at the show and said it would be available in the second quarter. It's apparently meant to stem flights to Salesforce.com by SAP's installed base. SAP said the widgetry s was "designed for sales professionals, offering them easy and effective ways to collaborate with teams on opportunities, manage customer information in a smarter way and communicate effectively with people in their networks. It aims to help them access relevant and real-time knowledge and resources, and gain accurate insig... (more)

Which ERP Is Suitable for Companies with X Million Dollars in Revenue?

“Which ERP is suitable for companies with x million dollars?” Revenues size is one of the most common factors in ERP selection. It is a common question facing a manager looking to find a replacement system for their current ERP solution. The question comes down to “How large are you?” and “how scalable is the ERP software?” Let’s look at the first question of how large are you as a company? Are you “10 Million dollars in annual revenue?” or, do you have “50 Million dollars” in revenue, or 100 Million”, or “500 Million?” All of these companies may require a different level of software capabilities. This is because of a few factors. First, smaller companies tend to have fewer numbers of users. So the solutions at the lower tier usually can support up to a set number of users, be it 20 or 100 users. As database and network technologies are improving, these limits are ... (more)

SAP Business One on a Mac

I received a request to start a discussion about running SAP Business One on a Mac. Quite serendipitous, given that I use Business One every day on my Mac G5 with a 27" Cinema Display. It's okay to be jealous, I'm used to it. Needless to say, it is awesome. Orchestra even customizes the SAP B1 icon to be a Mac icon for B1. It bounces in the dock when launched and everything. How pretty. Click Read More to read the rest of the post... ... (more)
