Who's a SAP? Software giant not interested in BlackBerry

0. phoneArena 26 Oct 2013, 12:32 posted on

The CFO of software giant SAP, Werner Brandt, has shot down reports that his company has an interest in purchasing beleaguered manufacturer BlackBerry; in a published report out of Germany, Brandt said, "Blackberry doesn't fit with our strategy." Even though the Canadian handset OEM has agreed to a $4.7 billion buyout from its largest stockholder, Fairfax Financial, there are questions about financing which has left the door open...

So sad it is, imagine if tomorrow this is the fate of Google, MS or Apple. Said company is going down and will never recover, vultures are fighting over pieces of the company. No one knows what will become of it...that kind of thing.

Let's hope not. SAP makes about the least user friendly software in the world. If they took over BB, you'd probably have to enter a different 16 digit alphanumeric code to launch each app.

I don't know all their products, but they make software that integrates into many systems and ties them together. At a previous job, I had to learn to use it. It tied together our inventory, maintenance, ordering, etc... systems. It was a nightmare to use. We called it Hitler's revenge. You literally couldn't search anything by keyword, you had to use a long alphanumeric string.

That was years ago. Maybe they've gotten better. I just know everyone hated using it.

I am a SAP developer, SAP makes software for big companies, not final users, it's most famous system is the ERP, which (how tedkord has said) integrates the whole company's process into one software

I like blackberry though, I had previously get blackberry for my brother in-law, blackberry curve 9315 version of T-Mobile. Besides android, blackberry is my option, rather than other os.I used wp for a month, I'd tied apple, but blackberry is second to android in my opinion .

Allan F I thought you are the one that reports any news about Blackberry but, you let Micheal H to report about BBM no longer requiring waiting list. You my friend is a true hater that reports only bad news about Blackberry. As always you have to much time @your disposal. One day you will report blackberry's comeback.
