They want "Early Talent"....low cost dumb employees who will not question anything and be robots for the assembly line
ya know millennials require a nice title to work
I got laid off at age 65. My skills were no longer required even though I have already done S4 HANA implementation. They want "Early Talent"....low cost dumb employees who will not question anything and be robots for the assembly line
Some of the channel sales and services sales teams in APJ have been cut 50% of their headcount. To do this i in January is a sign of desperation for SAP management. SAP is no longer the same company I joined in 1996. S4HANA is not much different from R/3 in terms of functionality. Go figure that out!
which region and role? can update?
The focus program is continuing in 2018 and has already started with SAP consulting
A number of customers see SAP as high cost low added value.
What's keeping SAP going?
The 17 to 22 per cent maintenance revenue to SAP that large customers do not want to risk taking off in case it affects their operations.
That there is no easy alternative with low switching costs in the market for large organizations already on SAP.
That too many customers and partners are deeply entrenched in SAP skills and moving away from SAP jeopartise their jobs too.
So, is SAP innovating fast enough or is it just sales messenging?
Most likely not Germany, workers council will make sure of that. But in other market units for sure. Anything that bears the words DBS "transformation", "streamlining", "restucturing", "operational requirement" is something to look out for. 2018 Q1 is my bet. Teams already being shuffled around to avoid the chop.
