[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. But to make use of these possibilities and capabilities, IT teams need to re-think everything they have done before. Otherwise, they will just end up using public cloud as a hosting platform for their workloads, aka known as "lift and shift." In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Swen Conrad, CEO of Ocean9, will discuss the amazing possibilities public cloud brings to enterprise workloads like SAP. You will learn how to correctly size systems in the cloud, how to adjust for critical business seasons and how to achieve high availability and disaster recovery with... (more)

Oracle Issues Statement

It took Oracle a while to recover from its giddiness at winning a record $1.3 billion judgment against SAP Tuesday to issue a statement that nobody in the press could wait for. One gathers that means it was surprised and unprepared as well as silly with delight. Nevertheless when it finally found its voice it had its president, Safra Catz, reiterate its position. She said: “For more than three years, SAP stole thousands of copies of Oracle software and then resold that software and related services to Oracle’s own customers. Right before the trial began, SAP admitted its guilt and liability; then the trial made it clear that SAP’s most senior executives were aware of the illegal activity from the very beginning. As a result, a United States Federal Court has ordered SAP to pay Oracle $1.3 billion. This is the largest amount ever awarded for software piracy.” ... (more)

Ellison-Aligned NetSuite Attacks SAP

NetSuite - which, as it happens, is majority-owned by Larry Ellison who has just returned from a courtroom battle with SAP utterly victorious - is waving around an amusing little TCO comparison of its ERP cloud software suite against SAP's revivified Business ByDesign (BBD) widgetry that suggests that ByDesign five-year costs run over $500,000 for only 10 users. NetSuite is supposed to be 40%-70% cheaper and naturally it claims way more bells and whistles - half again as much functionality. NetSuite used SAP's own online TCO calculator for the SAP calculations (http://bit.ly/SAPTCO), which is supposed to demonstrate BBD's value compared to on-premise software. NetSuite claims that "By providing an under-powered product with an extremely high total cost of ownership, SAP has fallen into the trap of every stone-age software provider that has tried to make the transiti...

SAP Licenses IV’s Patents

It's unclear what SAP's worried about - having been royally trashed by Oracle and ordered to pay a landmark $1.3 billion in copyright infringement penalties for the wholesale looting of Oracle IP - but the German software company has licensed Intellectual Ventures' patent portfolio of 30,000 patents "for defensive use" apparently like the deals IV cut recently with Samsung and HTC, which Apple is suing. Terms were not disclosed. Intellectual Ventures is the usually quiet patent-acquiring outfit put together by ex-Microsoft biggie Nathan Myhrvold. Late last week a Texas judge set aside a jury verdict ordering SAP to pay Versata $138.6 million for patent infringement. There will be a new trial on damages. ... (more)

Quit Your Addiction to Pushing Paper

We're fortunate enough to have three kinds of waste collections in our area: regular trash, garden refuse and recycling. For those that have always had this kind of facility available, this doesn't seem particularly extraordinary. In fact, in some parts of the world, waste can involve as many as a dozen different categories or more. You can in fact spend a lot of effort and time sorting your waste to make sure that you are disposing of trash in a most efficient way. The reason I brought this up is that a recent visitor to my house commented on the fact that it was amazing how much recycling material we generated since we keep a carton in the kitchen with all of the jars, bottles, boxes and packaging material that needs to be kept separate from the garbage. The comment now resonates with me every time I take that carton to the wheeled bin in the yard and  it got me ... (more)

SAP Buys US Mobile Platform House Syclo

German giant SAP said Tuesday, after getting back from the long weekend, that it's going to buy privately held Chicago-based Syclo, a long-established company with a mobile enterprise application platform called Agentry and packaged ERP and CRM apps. Terms weren't disclosed. The deal should close this quarter. Syclo has expertise in building applications for utilities, oil & gas, life sciences and manufacturing and counts 600 customers around the world. SAP said the acquisition "adds momentum to our already powerful mobile portfolio, advancing our vision and leadership while accelerating our mobile apps." And where there are mobile apps, there's a cloud. SAP is on the trail of seeing €20 in total annual revenues by 2015 versus €14.2 billion last year tickled by mobile solutions. Evidently Syclo's widgetry will become part of SAP's Mobile Platform. It's supposed to b... (more)
