A recent article on the Financial Post by former CEO of technology giant SAP, Michael Schachter, has raised a few eyebrows.
It raises the question, “when you’re forced to choose between the risk of losing your job and the money you could make?”
While the article has received some negative responses, it’s also been well received by many in the tech industry.
Schachner also has a personal connection to the tech scene.
In 2005, he started a company called Credence to develop a software development platform for developers.
In 2011, he was tapped to head SAP’s mobile development group, where he remained until he was named CEO of SAP in 2014.
“It was a very hard decision,” Schachman told me over the phone from San Jose, California.
“SAP was growing so rapidly and it was the right time for a change, so I felt very good about it.
But I have to say that the risk-taking part of it was tough.”
I’ve also known Schach, now a partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, for over 15 years.
We met at a conference about mobile and digital strategy in 2012.
He was then at SAP, but the transition from there to the company where he now serves as the CEO of the software development group was different.
“The big question that everyone had was, what’s the best way to build the best mobile apps?
And I had that same question for a long time,” he told me.
“I had a different answer in my head for that question. “
The answer was, ‘develop a mobile app that people are willing to use.'” “
I had a different answer in my head for that question.
The answer was, ‘develop a mobile app that people are willing to use.'”
Schach’s answer, which I can only paraphrase, was: Build a great mobile app, and then scale it up to be as great as possible.
“The problem with that answer is that it’s not very good,” he continued.
So, I made a really good mobile product, and I had to figure out how to scale that product to get a much bigger audience.” “
Instead, what I wanted to do was build a good mobile app for everyone.
So, I made a really good mobile product, and I had to figure out how to scale that product to get a much bigger audience.”
The answer is, build a great app for everybody.
I made an amazing product, but it wasn’t as good as it could have been.
In short, build mobile apps for everybody, and scale them to be a big business.
That’s what Schach said.
But that’s not to say there aren’t challenges that arise.
For example, the new version of the app, called SAP Stream, which is built specifically for SAP Stream customers, has had some issues.
As I reported in the August issue of this magazine, Stream was built using an old version of SAP.
That was a mistake, as it allowed SAP to build a large number of features for a small number of customers.
“But we fixed that and it’s now in a much better state than it was before,” Schuch said.
“This new version was built with a very different mindset.
It takes a lot of planning and a lot more time and a big investment to build great mobile products.” “
You can’t just build a mobile product for the sake of building great software products.
It takes a lot of planning and a lot more time and a big investment to build great mobile products.”
Schach also told me that SAP Stream is not ready to be sold.
But he acknowledged that the company has some growing pains, and the platform is growing quickly.
“There’s still some work to do, and we’ll do it,” he said.
One of those is improving the way it views users.
For SAP, that includes making it easier to manage your customers’ data.
It has a dashboard for users that shows how many users have connected to SAP over the past month and shows a summary of the apps that have been downloaded, downloaded and downloaded.
That dashboard has also been redesigned to include more detail about what’s going on inside the app.
“That is what is missing from the dashboard,” Schich said.
SAP has also worked on a feature that lets you check out the most popular apps in your list.
There are a few apps that I’ve used in the past that have never seen a lot on that dashboard, but I can tell you they are all very popular.
“One of the things we learned with SAP Stream and the dashboard is that you can’t show users who’s downloaded the most apps in a day, you have to show them the top apps that are downloaded in the last 24 hours,” Schoch said.
You can also show which apps are downloaded the least, but that’s just not the case with Stream.
That way, you can see which apps users are downloading. But what
