this is a RANT. so the thoughts WILL NOT be coherent 😈
where do i start? well at the beginning. there are customers out there that have created sap hcm coes and are highly functioning members of the sap ecosystem. these customers have invested in their hcm on-premise from both a product and employee perspective. smart; hardworking employees. fast forward and sap buys sf. they then sell companies on the idea that they must move to sf to get the best and newest. so many companies, been sap shops decide this is the best step forward
so sap shops buy sf and then the fun begins. what sf did not tell them is that in addition to renting software for life, they have to rent “professional services” for life too. WOW. what a shock to the system. a double whammy. getting it from both ends so to speak.
so customers start reading. in sf there are 2 sides to “configuring” the system. provisioning and client admin. some of the foremost “experts” swear that provisioning is nothing more than “switch framework” in SAP to switch on functionality. b***sh**. the customer is not that dumb. especially when said customer has implemented some modules using a “partner” and “partner” saying “sorry, that is done in provisioning and we have to do it”. and the list goes on. i now have to pay x dollars per hour for a task just because sf says so
even the main certification chick, in one of her comments clearly stated “certification is not for customers” or as i like to call us “sheep”. sheep you see are stupid and cannot do the job.
one customer, bless his heart, is brave enough to speak up. where are all the other SF customers? oh that is right they are been moved into their pens. this customer asks a great question. one of his employees used to work for a partner and used to have “provisioning” access. after joining the company as an employee said access disappeared. so he went from been a sheep herder to a sheep and sf acted accordingly.
what is also really pi**ing me off is the fact that every tells the “sheep”. just wait one more year and then we will let you become herders. one year becomes too etc.
the reasons are great too. sorry we cannot see what functionality you have switched on in your system. we can see how many employee records but sorry. also we do not have enough developers.
the real reason is so that the sheep will carry on paying the sheep herders.
let us unite and fight back. power to the “sheep”
