re: SAP Takes Big Step Putting CRM On Hana
The target for Financials On Demand, as described here, sounds much like NetSuite's mission, where there's something at the core, but NetSuite consolidates around the edges. In a recent interview with InformationWeek, NetSuite's CEO said of this strategy that not too many companies have been successful (financially) moving down market. In other words, good luck to SAP. Overall, though, it sounds like SAP is looking for customers wherever they can find them for now, as they build out their entire portfolio of cloud apps, and around Hana.
