Shai Agassi Quits SAP
I wrote a quick note for sandhill on Shai Agassi's exit from SAP. Clearly the most articulate of the SAP management team and perhaps the most feared by its opponents, Shai helped SAP achieve great strides( I do know about the existence of a dissenting minority on this). SAP is such a massive software – perhaps the most complex business application software ever developed and sold as a package to date and making it grow with changing technology shifts is no easy job and only the most courageous and visionary can ever take charge for driving such initiatives. Shai was a stellar person attempting such a thing to make it happen for SAP. In fact his leadership helped in many ways SAP to gain entry into the famous enterprise software club – MISO. The days ahead for SAP is quite interesting to watch. The full effects of Oracle’s acquisitions shall begin to be felt more and more in the days to come. For a company of the size & stature of SAP, obviously there is a lot of talent within to continue the operations and it can always tap external talent as the need may be(but perhaps this may not happen – when some think that this is needed the most). Well established corporations with mature product lines like SAP will face inflection points in their lifetime – for some SAP is nearing that, we have to see, how this giant makes it moves. That would have ramifications across the enterprise software sector – the reach infact extends not just the tech world but perhaps the entire business ecosystem, around the world.
