Thank god for a gentleman named Ian - he's having fun. And he should as this is the coolest I've seen from SAP. Mind you "seen", not lived with, nor analysed or studied closer, leave it at "seen".
Ian, sadly, seems to be the only one - everybody else is sombre, serious, even gloomy. Yes I know there's a crisis out there but why do you have to show the economy respect as if you were at a funeral?
Yes I know "enterprise software" is serious stuff, important stuff, pompous and certainly not to be made fun of. But so is life damned it! And life is always better if we have fun, are passionate and do not wander around fearing being hit by the next bus.
Business, enterprise is all about creating value, helping people, making people happy, safe, richer, fed, cured and all that great and positive stuff - so where the heck is the passion and the fun when one is instrumental in all of this positiveness??
Sir Richard, could you please take a break from consumer services and pop over to the enterprise software market and give it one of your thorough shake ups?
