That might be a good title for a song by Little Feat, but actually I'm voicing the frustration that my Enterprise Irregular blogging chums are having fun over at SAP's SAPPHIRE 07 conference. I get the chance to join in when the show hits Vienna in two weeks, but in the meantime I have to attend vicariously through their blogs, and they're doing a great job!
Thomas live blogged SAP Chairman Hasso Plattner's keynote, whilst Dennis gave his considered opinion, and Dan thinks we have to wait and see. Dan also has the details on A1S from Hans-Peter Klaey, now the president of their SME division, and then Dennis presents his analysis. I've written twice before about the product, and their on demand strategy. Like me, Dennis doesn't see how it is going to work, and worries that we aren't being shown the new product, even though they say it is being trialled by 150 customers.
Dennis has met with a few people and teased us about what might be coming from CODA. He seems to think that there is definitely more innovation on show at SAPPHIRE 07 compared to SAP's major rival Oracle. Dan has also posted about Duet, which integrates SAP and Microsoft Office. I'm looking forward to the rest of the output.
Update: Jerry Bowles is at the bloggers corner too, and Coté of Redmonk is blogging Henning Kagerman's keynote.
