SAP Cloud – Quarterly update Q1 2014 by @SDenecken

Between two major client events – SAP Executive Summit in Potsdam (Berlin) and d-code in the Valley – time for a quick update on SAP Cloud. Many, many customer, partner and influencer meetings happened – thank you for all the feedback which we do incorporate in our strategy going forward.

It is addressed in the video, but thought I share some of the highlights here as well:

– As already stated in the cloud strategy update earlier – and we are just executing on our strategy, we will converge to ONE platform in the cloud (paas;)

– We have proven that the platform works as we have built own solutions on top of it AND partners are doing as well

– We are moving all solutions (saas;) to the platform, and we did so already for many of them

A big thank you to our clients and partners, they are the inspiration for us to drive the Cloud transition to success. Here are the facts:
