SAP Talks about Its New A1S Software

Today's Mercury News has a very timely article about SAP's A1S Software. Hasso Plattner, their chairman, talked about A1S at the Software 2007 conference that's taking place this week in Santa Clara, just a few miles from our Cassatt headquarters.

Some highlights on A1S:
  • A1S will be a hosted, web-based offering of SAP's famous (or infamous depending on your point-of-view) ERP software
  • A1S has been under development for the past 3 years and is expected to release in 2008.
  • Hasso touts the "Software as a Service" (SaaS) model and how A1S will be SAP's foray into this space.
  • A1S was announced and discussed last month at SAP's Sapphire conference for its key customer and partners.
Very interesting article. Take a read for yourself.
