SAP reorganises and shuffles its senior execs

Now what is happening on the product side?

SAP has announced a significant rejig of its senior directors to accompany a restructuring of its Global Field Organisation - the ERP giants' sales and services structure.

SAP Co-CEO Bill McDermott said, "We are aligning our Global Field Organization behind trusted leaders to focus our energy on delivering innovation and business value for our customers."

Ray Wang, founder of analyst house Constellation Research, said the moves were "solid choices" for SAP and its customers. "Product teams must align with field teams," said Wang. He added that the reorganisation raised questions about what is happening with SAP's product lines.

Jos Duarte has been appointed president of Global Services, which includes SAP Consulting, SAP Education, SAP Custom Development and SAP Maintenance Go-to-Market. Duarte was previously head of the EMEA operation, which will now be led by Franck Cohen.

Eric Duffaut will takeover the Global Ecosystem & Channels responsibility, charged with sharpening SAP's links with outsourcers, system integrators, technology partners and the channel. He will also drive sales of SAP's much delayed Business ByDesign SaaS offerings and try and drive up interest among SAP partners for the products.

Robert Enslin is taking over as president of Global Sales, where "he will bring customer experience", said Wang. Enslin's former role as president of SAP North America will be handled by, Robert Courteau

Sanjay Poonen has been appointed president of Global Solutions Go-To-Market, and has dual reporting lines to SAP Co-CEOs McDermott and Jim Hagemann-Snabe.

Poonen will drive a reorganised operation which for the first time combines the company's industry, line-of-business, and business analytics & technology teams with specialist sales teams.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
