The other day Dennis tipped me off to Sig's latest challenge of Thingamy versus SAP. Sig likes to explain how he can replace your traditional ERP with Thingamy, but this is different, and probably more important! By the way, Sig is one of those guys you absolutely hate to stand next to - older than me, but taller, fitter, better looking, more money - I have explained to my wife that I'm never introducing him to her.
This challenge is all about Sig's other passion, which is cycling. From his blog:
"In two weeks, on Saturday 30th (wind less than a gazillion mph from all directions as only constraint) a hardcore SAP cycling team led by Thomas will arrive Provence where I (and hopefully a few more) will join up for a ride up Mt Ventoux for charity!"
"22 km over 1610 m. This is the most famous and difficult ascent. The road to the summit has an average gradient of 7.6%."
My guess is that in cycling, as in enterprise software, SAP have got quite challenge on from the "little" guy.
