One year after SAP acquired Ariba, Robert Calderoni, president of SAP Cloud and a member of the Global Managing Board of SAP AG, explains how SAP is fast becoming a force to be reckoned with in the cloud.
You’ve heard the rap: SAP is an enterprise software company. SAP is expensive. SAP doesn’t get the cloud. But as the one-year anniversary of its acquisition of Ariba approaches, a different picture is emerging. While others have been talking about the cloud, SAP has been quietly transforming itself into a force to be reckoned with. Fueled by a portfolio of cloud solutions that is arguably the most comprehensive in the industry and an aggressive strategy to market and sell them, SAP is fast marching towards its goal of becoming the world’s leading cloud company.
Calderoni reflects on the transition and provides a view into what lies ahead for SAP in the full interview, available on SAP.info.
