Not a me-too move
The purchase price isn't being disclosed, but in other respects I like this deal. It's a good sign that the terms are not material to earnings (requiring disclosure), and it seems like a well-thought-out fit with what SAP is doing already.

Do I like that freelance, temporary, and contract workers are becoming such a fixture of the workforce? No, but that's the quarter-to-quarter, profit-motivated world we're living in.
