SAP Influencers Conference

SAP Influencer Summit: SOA grows up by ZDNet‘s Michael Krigsman.

Krigman attended the SAP Influencer Summit, an invitation-only event for approximately 500 key SAP partners, bloggers, analysts, user group leaders, academics, and the press.

He’s come away with observations, good as well as bad naturally, about SAP’s strategic position today. He writes, "In plain English, SAP now provides a foundation, on top of which third-parties (customers and partners) can write new applications and which prevents the core SAP code from being changed. This approach ensures a clean, future upgrade path without the downstream costs traditionally associated with custom code. Customer adaptations integrate directly with the core SAP software to extend it’s functionality, but again, the core remains protected."
