ZDNet: One Enterprise CIO’s View of CES

Eric Lai’s latest ZDNet blog shares fascinating insights from the recent Consumer Electronics Shows in Las Vegas, including a not to be missed video from SAP CIO Oliver Bussmann.

The rapid-deployment solutions combine SAP software, fixed price services, pre configuration and very powerful implementation accelerators. Together, they are designed to lower the risk of business management implementations against missed expectations for cost, implementation time, business results, and “future proofing” the business against technology obsolescence.
