SAP's SAPPHIRE NOW in Orlando is over for another year but not to worry for it will be back in Madrid in November coupled with TechEd. We hope you've had a great few days and enjoyed many of the fine keynotes, tracks and of course Van Halen. 

Here is our final day round-up, a day which incuded keynotes from the Chairman of the SAP's Supervisory Board, Hasson Plattner and also Vishal Sikka - Head of Technology and Innovation - who discussed how SAP HANA is simplifying customer experiences and delivering enterprise scale. To be honest it was a very HANA focussed day!

Quote of the day:

“Please, please, please, my dear competition,” Plattner said, pleading, “We can beat each other and fight each other as much as we want and argue, but do not predict how a system really works when you really don’t know and don’t want to know. Either be better informed, or don’t do it.” - Hasso Plattner

Tweet of the day (it was practically trending)

Take Note! Developer licenses for HANA and NEO are now FREE. This is huge! #SAPPHIRENOW by John Appleby (@appleby)

Dan Farber has great coverage of the keotyne where Hasso Plattner outlined SAP's "new idea" for on demand software a vision that includes community and collaboration at its core. Jeff says it's criminal that SAP sat on this so-called "MySpace for the enterprise" for a year. Of course, this natural given that enterprises are slow-moving by their nature. SAP TechEd '06 was eye-opening for me it's clear these guys get it from the top-down. (Credentialing bloggers was a big clue). If they truly want to play in the small- and medium-business markets, however, they're going to need to learn to innovate faster. As Tom Carroll suggests, this is a monolithic challenge but ultimately service abstractions are the way to achieve this agility.
