WhySCP: Welcome to Bob Sakalas’s Personal Blog
In everything we do, we believe the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.
SAP Cloud Platform in a Nutshell
Most companies have rigid, massively complex I.T. systems.
SAP created a unique platform to abstract core systems and simplify innovation for large corporations, letting our customers adapt to change 5X to 10X faster,
while integrating enterprise systems.
Corporate I.T. systems are Excessively Complex
Complexity is killing your I.T. team, which is drowning in application backlog requests.
Demand for change is growing 5X faster than the team’s capability to advance.
It is high time to do things differently.
The Current Situation
Corporate systems are tightly-coupled, like the gears of a mechanical watch. When I.T. makes changes, comprehensive testing is required, resulting in runaway expense and lost time.
Enterprise I.T. architecture must change
to one that looks more like a modern smartwatch.
Adding, modifying, or deleting apps on a smartwatch has no effect on core timekeeping, health, or notifications because of abstraction APIs and secure connectors.
SAP can help Modernize your Approach
Because of rapid growth and many acquisitions, SAP had this same problem in our own house.
We created the proven blueprint and a unique technology platform to solve the growing complexity problem, while embracing the tricky new world of mixed on-premise and cloud computing.
You need a comprehensive cloud-based platform to make bi-modal architecture hum.
The unique SAP Cloud Platform enables the abstraction of back-end systems-of-record from front-end systems-of-innovation for the largest companies on earth.
In our own shop, SAP delivers daily innovations to our 90,000+ employees, 300,000+ customers, and more than 1,000 business partners.
We have the experience to help overcome your Complexity Chasm.
Now or Never: Go for Hero Status
Digital transformation is all about becoming more nimble, more innovative,
more able to change and thrive.
Doing things the same way will not keep up with demand.
SAP Cloud Platform offers state-of-the-art rapid development, low-code no-code capabilities, re-usable modules, and a tremendous amount of pre-written content.
Embrace the exciting new world and become a hero.
