12) 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.

13) ERP II SAP/Oracle Escalation Wake-up Call: Some enterprises with large-scale SAP/Oracle systems have experienced an Oracle DBMS bug, which has exposed problems with the vendors' support escalation processes. In the complex world of ERP II, enterprises with large-scale implementations are likely to experience difficulties that expose flaws in vendors' support and quality assurance processes. Therefore, enterprises should become more proactive with respect to their system support and management. The critical support and escalation issues illustrated by the Oracle DBMS bug will have major ramifications on the credibility of the ERP II Unix market to support large-scale business operations.

14) 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."

16) 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."

17) 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."

18) SAP Chooses Sun Micro Platform Over Microsoft : SAP, Europe's biggest software group, has decided not to use Microsoft's .Net software platform and is instead backing a competing offering from Sun Microsystems. 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.

28) Life On The Internet: Could Blogging Assist KM?: But what if the two Ė blogging and KM Ė got together? That is, what if we took the technology that allows Bloggers to quickly annotate their journeys through the web with information about the whys and wherefores with a KM system that allowed their organizational colleagues to use the weblogs as a source of expertise? Consider:

-- If experts could use blogging software that was part of their normal work environment, probably part of their browser, to note and annotate web sites they wanted to share as part of their area of expertise (note the expert decides what to share, avoiding privacy problems);

32) Metafilter | Comments on 9305: Don't spend their childhoods praising your daughters for being pretty and your sons for being smart. If you can, avoid praising your daughters in an excessive manner for passive behaviour - ie, when you are telling your friends about how great your kids are, in front of your kids, find something fabulous your daughter has done other than sit quietly, play quietly, and keep her clothes neat.

34) 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."

It is the second round of layoffs for the Dallas-based company in the past four months. Like other business-to-business vendors, i2 is being hit by a slowdown in the economy and lower-than-expected sales. Furthermore, on Monday, i2 announced the departure of Reagan Lancaster, the company's president of worldwide field operations.

me : It is strange - these laying off numbers... - what were these 587 doing last week and who will do it next week !!!

38) Professor Who Once Found Isolation Online Has a Change of Heart: Three years ago, Robert Kraut, a professor at Carnegie Mellon University, released a shocking study of the Internet's impact. According to his findings, heavy Internet users reported increases in loneliness and depression and saw the size of their social networks decline over time. Could the Internet ó a presumed tool of connectivity and community ó actually be causing people to feel more isolated and alone? Now Dr. Kraut is causing a stir yet again. He has new data from a more recent survey that in many respects contradicts his original research. Following up with the subjects of his first study, he found that the symptoms of depression had declined and that loneliness no longer appeared to be significantly associated with Internet use.

39) 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.

40) BBC News | AMERICAS | US rejects germ warfare plan: The United States has refused to sign up to an international agreement designed to enforce a ban on the use of biological weapons. Washington's representative to the United Nations-sponsored talks in Geneva said the US was unable to support the draft accord - the result of years of debate - because it would not achieve its goals and would hurt American interests.

The message that goes out now is that the world does not care about biological weapons - the most dangerous kind of all

Graham Pearson Biological weapons expert Donald Mahley said: "In our assessment, the draft protocol would put national security and confidential business information at risk."

41) How many ways can you skin a cow? In Hindu India, there are plenty: ERODE, INDIA, July 19, 2001: To Western companies operating in India, the cow is a sacred. But nothing is so straightforward in India. India is actually a major producer and consumer of leather, and only some of it comes from goat, sheep and buffalo. With a population that is an estimated 80% Hindu, India slaughters 14 million cattle a year, making it the world's fifth most active cattle killer, according to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization. Government tax breaks have helped make leather of all kinds one of India's biggest exports. But it takes some effort to accommodate business and religion when it comes to cowhide. The Hindu religion forbids eating beef and slaughtering cows, but permits taking the hide of a ''fallen'' cow, or one that has died naturally. Central Leather Research Institute in Madras' executive director, T. Ramasami, says leather is just a by-product of cows that are slaughtered for meat. ''Economics are a reason cows became sacred, as one cow provided milk for an entire village. Economics change faster than religious beliefs," he says.

42) 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.

43) Customer Notes: How to speed up development: Here is an e-mail UserLand just got from a developer at a large multinational: I think I'm finally starting to really "get" Frontier/Manila, and I have to say "holy automation, Batman!" One of the things I'm implementing is a registration system for an internal conference my department is organizing. There I was figuring out how to create a new database table for registrants, designing HTML forms for signing up, and so on, when I realized that all I had to do was create a whole new site and turn "join" into "register" on that site, and everything's done! Even the design was done, as everything I've done for the main site can be reused. So instead of a week's work, it's all done in minutes. Our old site was created using Microsoft IIS, Visual InterDev, ASP and all the rest of it, and it took 3 months to implement, two people to administer, contributors had to download templates (which were .asp pages) and try to carefully write in between the right tags -- and after that (obviously) didn't work, we had to hire an editor. The estimate for the conference registration system was two solid months of coding. Anyway, WOW!

44) Weblogging: Another Kind of Website: One day in mid-March 2000 Raymond Yee of the Interactive University [1] thought it would be a good idea to buy and experiment with Manila, a web server application capable of supporting literally thousands of weblog websites. A bargain-priced education license was purchased, and Catherine Yoes downloaded and installed it on a rather ordinary NT server. Within weeks the IU experienced a revolutionary change in thinking about what a website is, how they're hosted, what they're used for, how they're built, and who owns them. A year and a half later all of the IU's websites are being produced using weblog technology, our team communications and sharing has been vitally enhanced, a number of our team members are regularly writing on the web, as are many of our University/K-12 projects and the K-12 teachers we work with.

45) Line56.com | Lead Story: Commerce One Posts $2BN Loss: Commerce One has announced an alarming U.S. $2 billion loss for its second quarter, the bulk derived from non-cash charges of $1.7 billion resulting from "the impairment of intangible assets and equity investments," and a restructuring charge of U.S. $62 million. One analyst observes "Theyíve been pretty low to the ground in terms of making a market. Iíve been waiting for them to propel themselves. The curious thing here is that, in terms of being acquired, it doesn't look at this point as if SAP is in a position to acquire them. Commerce One might not be such a strategic purchase at this point."

46) 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.''

49) 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.

50) 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.
