While the videos aren’t quite as easy to find as Microsoft’s are, I thought they did a better job of connecting the dots. For each demo, SAP lists a few capabilities.

SAPPHIRE 2014: SAP Simplifies


At SAP’s recent SAPPHIRE NOW event, two themes were clear regarding SAP’s focus in the near future—the company’s commitment to simplification, which in SAP terms means to “run simple,” and second, maybe derived from the first idea, to embrace the cloud even more.

As the battle for the mid-market intensifies and each Tier 1 vendor is exhibiting its bag of tricks for small-to-medium enterprises, SAP is trying a twofold strategy of promulgating its mySAP.com offering for the higher-end of the mid-market, while offering a recently acquired product to appeal to complexity-adverse smaller enterprises.
