Podcast: SAP Q1’19 Earnings Announcement – 3 Takeaways from a Customer’s Perspective


SAP made some significant announcements in its Q1’19 earnings call that will have implications for SAP customers. SAP is focusing on improving margins, Bill McDermott wants fair market value for SAP’s software, and Elliott Management takes a $1.5B stake in SAP.

In this podcast, Len Riley discusses how Elliott Management will not just be focused on the operational efficiencies of SAP but more on revenue side of the equation, meaning the relationships you have with SAP Sales Executives will be less flexible and more stringent, with more decisions and approvals being made from the regional CFOs offices.
