SAP’s Fear

Business Week has a quote by Bruce Richardson, the chief research officer at the tech consulting company AMR Research, who attended the SAP conference, on May 17 in Boston: “When you talk to the SAP execs and you ask, ‘Who are you worried about?’ their answer is the only possible threat in the next 5 to 10 years may be some large Indian IT services firm that learns to build composite applications and can mimic or replicate the functionality that SAP has and do it all in new code, and not worry about being backward-compatible with the 27,000 customers SAP already has. ”

So, are the Indian IT companies thinking along these lines?
