There is a certain poignancy about posting this video now. Jon and Den recorded this about 10 days ago but travel schedules and production issues got in the way of posting the content.
In this very SAPpy show, we discuss Den’s visit to Walldorf, focusing on the on-demand story and in particular the conversations Den had with Jim Hagemann Snabe, SAP Co-CEO and John Wookey who led the O-D development team. Since this was recorded we have heard that John has left the company about which more later.
