“Truth is, SAP isn’t willing to concede this market to the likes of Salesforce.com, Jive Software, Lithium, or Microsoft, which now owns Yammer as well as SharePoint…SAP is trying to snag a big, fat portion of the next frontier in enterprise software: tools to manage interactions with employees and customers in social media In a brash challenge to Salesforce.com, SAP is selling new social tools for salespeople and call-center workers.”

“The risk to Salesforce if they don’t address this misplaced picture of their ecosystem…is that someone else is going have a compelling story that does. …The most direct threat, ironically may come from SAP, if they don’t shoot themselves in their own foot. SAP GVP Sameer Patel created a compelling social ecosystem that is threaded throughout by an entirely redesigned cloud-based collaboration focused product and services line.”
