Cloud ERP: Two More Execs Leave SAP

We JUST posted a link to an article from May about the departure from SAP of Lars Daalgard, the founder of SuccessFactors, a cloud-based human capital management company acquired by SAP to help move the legacy giant into the SaaS marketplace. He lasted less than a year, and now we hear that two more executives with so-called "cloud DNA" have decided to move on.

SAP and the Cloud - Not a Match Made in Heaven

Lars Left

We've blogged a few times about SAP and its relationship with the Cloud. In October, SAP announced it would stop developing it's Business byDesign application, the only true multi-tenant cloud-based accounting product in its line. We saw this as an indication of how the traditional on-premise accounting and ERP software companies were struggling with the Software-as-a-Service trend. Well, here's another indication of this struggle: back in May, Lars Daalgard left the SAP executive board.

Hosting Versus the Cloud

We're Harping on this for a Reason

I know we keep harping on what true SaaS is and what “cloud-based” means, and that perhaps it sounds like we’re getting caught up in semantics, but there is a reason for our fixation - why we're shouting from the rooftops. There are huge advantages in cloud-based SaaS ERP solutions. Some advantages, like configurability and real-time reporting and dashboard analytics, are obvious to customers and end-users. Other advantages, like multi-tenancy, allow for cost savings on the part of vendors in the implementation, updates, and maintenance of the software that customers then see in their lower total cost of ownership.
