Re: Targeting the little guys
A focus in that area would help SAP edge into that market some. I agree that their focus has long been the biggest players. Gaining marketshare with small firms sounds like a wise move.

Re: Targeting the little guys
Yes, SAP has had these "Edge" SMB offerings for some time, but it's tough to tell how successfully they're being adopted. The Edge SMB products started under BusinessObjects, which was acquired by SAP in the 2007/2008 timeframe. SAP has a reputation for focusing more on bigger enterprises with more bucks to spend. I would think SMBs would have equally intereted in Lumira Cloud, given you don't have to install software and run servers.

Targeting the little guys
This could be huge for SAP. Offering affordable and powerful analytics to small customers is a big deal. This is affordable, at least based on the pricing shared in the article. This will help smaller companies get access to all kind of insights to make better investment decisions.
