One of the strengths of companies like SAP is their worldwide ecosystem of partners. Besides supporting SAP to sell licenses, SAP partners are key players in helping customers to deploy and run SAP based solutions.
But that is not all – there are some partners out there who have another kind of agenda. They have passion in making the world a better place for all SAP users. These partners believe in SAP, but they think that SAP standard solutions are not always good enough when it comes to improving their customers’ processes, solution usability or getting out the best possible information to drive their business. These partners and individuals are SAP rebels – warriors fighting for a brighter future!
Great companies like Business Objects, Sybase, Hybris and many others share the very same happy ending – being taken over by SAP! But before the takeover they all were SAP rebels. These companies strived for filling the holes in SAP’s products to the extent that in the end they got swallowed by their giant partner. The great thing for SAP customers is of course the fact that the solutions of these – long gone rebels – continue to live as part of SAP’s own portfolio.
As long as SAP is the center of gravity in its marketspace, it is likely that there will be a steady flow of new companies and individuals who strive to find new complementary improvements in the form of solutions and services. Take for example Bilot’s (and SAP’s) Norwegian partner Neptune Software who has developed new innovative and cost efficient ways for building mobile solutions on top of SAP and improving information workers’ user experience and thus SAP’s usability reputation.
Bilot’s one passion is identifying the most relevant innovations for our customers and implementing them better than anyone else. Therefore we are in constant search for SAP rebels – let it be for companies or individuals!
If you recognized yourself we might well want you in our very own ecosystem of SAP rebels who want to change things for better and for whom the status quo is not enough! Please contact us and let’s talk more!
