3) Software Review: SAP Business One : SAP has packaged its core applications in a flexible, capable product that makes sense for small and medium businesses struggling to make the best use of their business information.

7) SAP has the last laugh - Tech News - CNET.com: As SAP, Europe's biggest software maker, marks its 30th anniversary this week, its combative chief executive has cause for a certain satisfaction. Throughout the rise of the New Economy bubble in late 1999 and 2000, CEO Hasso Plattner had to battle charges that SAP was a dinosaur left behind in the explosive growth of the Internet. The company, which Plattner created with four colleagues from IBM, had made its name with big corporate planning systems that were a byword for technical excellence and user unfriendliness, requiring armies of consultants and months of preparation to make them work.

9) SAPís Application Server Move Will Be "Massively Unsuccessful": Speaking at Information Age's Collaborative Commerce conference in London (Jan. 31 - Feb. 1, 2002), Fred Meyer (chief product strategist at application integration vendor Tibco) outlined the role of packaged applications such as SAP's enterprise resource planning (ERP) suite, mySAP.com, in the future of Web services. "There will still be a role for packaged applications behind the firewall," says Meyer, "but the complexity of these systems makes it impossible to build exhaustive integration across applications. The SAP mindset is that "we own this world so you can't touch this," which is why [the move into application development] will be massively unsuccessful."

11) Line56.com: SAP Denies FT Report on .Net : SAP denied a report in today's edition of The Financial Times that CEO Hasso Plattner will announce that his company will choose Sun's J2EE architecture over rival Microsoft's .Net platform. "The Financial Times coverage was just wrong," says Bill Wohl, North American spokesman at SAP. "For the last eight months, Mr. Plattner has talked about SAP's strategy of openness. And next Tuesday, we'll announce our next generation technology architecture... that will support .Net, J2EE and much more."

12) Magician Loses Its Sparkling Touch: SAP, Europe's largest software maker, had been doing so well this year that it was starting to look more like the work of black magic than skilful management. That, at least, was the impression until recently when it became the last sizeable player in its devastated sector to issue a profit warning. No longer under the spell, analysts are now wondering whether the warning was a blip or the prelude to more serious problems for the German group. At the very least, they say, the episode has pointed to serious weaknesses that must be addressed quickly. One of them lies in SAP's handling of its last results announcement, which not only irritated investors but also fanned fears the group may have lost "visibility" on developments in its market...As Mr Ashton puts it: "You can have the biggest firework in the world, it is no good if you do not have the audience."

Hasso Plattner, SAP chief executive, will announce next week that the German group is to adopt Sun's J2EE architecture, a development platform for enterprise software based on the Java programming language, to run SAP software. SAP's move is likely to be a blow to Microsoft, as the German group has one of the largest customer bases of any business software developer.

18) ZDNet: Enterprise: Microsoft: Big plans for Great Plains: Microsoft to rewrite Great Plains' apps in two years in C#. It's a familiar scenario: Microsoft Corp. settles into an inauspicious market toehold as competitors pay no heed Ė only to wake a few years later to find themselves obscured by the company's long shadow. It happened with Windows and Office. Now, the plan is to make it happen with Great Plains Software Inc.'s business applications. The software became part of Microsoft's portfolio when it acquired Great Plains this year. "All the business software in the world will be replaced," said Microsoft VP David Vaskevitch, the mastermind behind the acquisition. "It will be a 10-, 15-, even a 20-year process. You can rewrite SAP [AG], but it will be 10 times easier to rewrite Great Plains."

19) InternetNews - ASP News -- Summer of Love Among ERP Rivals?: One of the more startling innovations that SAP failed to announce at its most recent SAPPHIRE user conference came in a presentation that showed the unshowable: a heterogeneous environment that included SAP and, in full, copyrighted glory, the logos of its two archrivals, Oracle and PeopleSoft. The message was almost revolutionary. SAP will actively support integration with non-SAP applications, including those from its most bitter competitors. An unwritten rule has dominated the enterprise software market since punch card days: deny the existence of competing products and, against all evidence to the contrary, promote the idea that customers can and will standardize on a single enterprise vendor to run their myriad business processes.

20) Economist.com : Big is Beautiful again: Suddenly, scale matters in the high-tech world. This story looks at the new vogue for big firms. Bosses of big high-tech companies have every reason to turn to prayer these days. One after another they are announcing dismal results. In spite of the bad news, big is starting to look beautiful again in the computer industry. Witness SAP, a large German software firm. Only a year ago, it was considered a has- been. Now the pendulum is swinging back. On July 19th, it announced second-quarter net profits 24% up on the same quarter last year. Customers, saturated with reports of dot-com deaths, are turning back to established companies such as SAP, as well as to Oracle and IBM. "I call this 'the return of gravity'," says Hasso Plattner, SAPís chief executive.

21) SAP Devouring Stars of Dot-Com Era: SAP AG (SAPG.DE) is taking share from rivals across a range of market segments and has surged to become the top supplier of the software businesses use to manage suppliers and purchasing, Co-Chief Executive Hasso Plattner said on Thursday. Speaking in the vindicated tone of an industry veteran still wounded by previous criticism that Europe's largest software maker had ``missed the Internet,'' Plattner said in an interview that SAP has recaptured the momentum smaller players once had. ``Hype, vision and perception are losing. Deliverables, execution and reality are winning among customers these days,'' Plattner told Reuters following a news conference at SAP's global marketing headquarters. ``We give customers confidence.''

23) SAP: The Once and Future King : The empire strikes back: SAP has long been the lion king within the enterprise firewall. But over the last two years a host of startups have challenged SAP to clearly articulate the way in which it would leverage e-Business technologies to automate the processes that extend beyond the firewall ó connecting the enterprise with its supplier partners and customers. SAPís SAPPHIRE meeting in Orlando in mid-June signaled the re-emergence of the dominant enterprise application software vendor after a short period of partial eclipse. The well-orchestrated meeting showcased SAPís strong vision of the future of enterprise applications. The story was compelling, leading us to believe that this lion isnít quite ready to cede its hegemony.

24) CNN.com - SAP net profits jumps 78 percent despite slowdown - Jul. 19, 2001: Europe's largest software company SAP shrugged off the global economic slowdown by posting a 78% jump in Q2 net profits. SAP achieved its better-then-expected results against a background of an economic slowdown and lower corporate spending, particularly in the U.S., and as technology companies on both sides of the Atlantic reduced profit forecasts. SAP has benefited from its large base of existing customers and increasingly wide acceptance of its mySAP.com e-business product. After a difficult two-year transition period, SAP has emerged as one of the dominant forces in Internet-based business- to-business software.

27) ROI Versus Strategy: Itís no secret that the economic downturn has led companies to scale back e-business rollouts and focus on those that provide a quick return on investment. But does the new emphasis on targeted implementations come at the expense of a companyís larger strategic goals? And has the reshaped landscape changed the horizon for B2B plans already in place? "The shift is show me the money," says Cap Gemini, Ernst and Young B2B strategy lead Rick Andrade. That means focusing on the short term, bringing strategy, thinking and money forward to produce something that Wall Street and your constituency is happy with.

28) SAP sticks to forecasts as U.S. rivals warn : Europe's biggest software maker SAP AG said on Tuesday it was sticking to its sales and earnings forecasts, despite warnings from two of its U.S. rivals of disappointing second-quarter results. "Of course, we are currently sticking to the forecasts," a spokesman said, adding that as long as no statement to the contrary were issued, the forecast would stand. SAP has said it expects sales growth to exceed 23% in the nine months to September 2001 with operating margins growing by one or two percentage points above the 14% seen in the first nine months of 2000.
