  3. Hi Josh,

    I have been reading your blogs on SAP BBD. I am trying to figure what role the system integrators/consulting cos like IBM, Accenture etc. play here.

    Any pointers to this would be appreciated.


    • Sachin,

      The answer is that, when it comes to BBD, I doubt the global SIs will play much of a role. The deal sizes and margins will be too small, and the prospective customers in the SME space will be wary of doing business with a premium-priced SI. This may change, but I don’t see the global SIs as a major channel for BBD.

  4. Janetti,

  6. Josh Greenbaum — can’t find on Twitter. Help? Thanks.

    • Sorry Kathleen, I’m not on Twitter. You’ll have to follow me the old-fashioned way. When I have time for more work-related, OCD activity, I’ll start tweeting. Until then, I’m stuck in the early 21st century, blogging away.


  7. Josh, thanks for giving Fusion Talent Management a TLA. I’m wondering why I never thought of that — if it’s ok with you I’m going to stake a claim on FTM – FTW!

  11. Josh,

    Another difficulty with Oracle’s “Hairball” of products- that are all uniquely wired together comes when you try to take an application out of an Oracle Platformed environment and onto the cloud -or hosted environment for that matter. Decoupling becomes impossible. We have enough spagetti code still alive and well in legacy systems from decades ago.
