A Microsoft sponsored research attached numbers around an idea that’s pretty much known and acknowledged among modern humans – the average attention span is decreasing. For businesses, this means they now have precious little breathing space when it comes to establishing, nurturing, and leveraging customer interactions. The SAP Hybris Consumer Insights Report captures how almost every consumer wants answers to his/her queries within 24-hours (89% to be precise). This is just one of the manifestations of the attitude of the modern consumer. Businesses can’t continue to treat customers are numbers anymore.

SAP ranks right up there among global innovation leaders in the world of business applications, and here’s why it’s going to continue making businesses successful in the times to come.
