    smooookin: Out of WIND

    I bailed out of my last WIND holdings last week.
    I hope to buy back in 2 or 3 weeks *OR* when the
    price goes below $15. Whichever comes first.
    I'm
    only in one position right now, the rest is cash.

      I only saw the
      commercial on TV twice, both times early in the morning
      during the morning news. I guess they were targeting
      business execs prepping for work in the monring. I have a
      copy on tape and was thinking of creating an AVI from
      it, but I don't know how SAP might react if it got
      out.

      BTW, SAP still runs radio spots in the Chicago market
      on the all-news stations.

      SAP has made internet
      enabling the highest priority. SAPPHIRE '99 will be
      nothing but MySAP.com.

    • thanks for the reply. i hope sap can execute and
      while i agree the visible advertising may not be
      beneficial on the surface, somehow i wonder if branding,
      creating a favorable impression of the company would help.
      i guess that's what enjoysap is supposed to do.

    • Good point. You're right. SAP America ran a few commercials back in 1996. I was asking myself the who the target audience was.

    • MySAP.com indeed looks interesting, even though
      it will take a little while (end of 1999 ?) until it
      really kicks in. Other ERP companies may be further with
      their internet enabling / connectivity, but they don't
      don't nearly have the appl. functionality or
      installation base. SAP made clear that internet enabling has a
      high priority, and I have confidence in their ability
      to deliver.

    • I've seen a few TV commercials for SAP in Chicago, although not recently.

    • I am not speaking for Pete - I saw your question
      directed to him and I thought I'd throw in my two cents
      regarding SAP's direction in relation to the internet.
      Currently, SAP is launching a new initiative called
      MySAP.com which will extend all web enabled R/3
      applications to both new and existing customers. MySAP.com
      includes Business-to-Business procurement, SAP online
      store, employee self service, and the MySAP.com web
      portal. The portal is designed to allow customers to
      leverage the huge SAP install base worldwide. I have heard
      that there are 20000 SAP installations worldwide with
      a "potential" user base of 100 million people.
      There's alot of synergy there man. SAP is being every bit
      as aggressive as IBM and Oracle when it comes to
      E-Business. However, I would have to agree that it is not as
      visible to the public because SAP does not advertise on
      TV. That type of advertising would not be beneficial
      to SAP.

    • Pete, agree with you, however i'm curious how SAP
      is approaching the internet as it could be a
      disruptive revolution for erp that could seriously effect
      its business model. how are they approaching asp?
      despite my pessimism on oracle, i have to applaud their
      aggressive marketing and positioning when compared to sap.
      any thoughts?

    • Rusty, my evidence is customers from Toronto,
      Montreal, Dallas, Philly, and Mexico City. No matter what
      language. No matter what taxation. No matter what SAP
      version. No matter what promises of Y2K compliance. It
      SUCKS!

      Not short, just honest.

    • Whers your evidence small boy. Go home this place is for intelligent talk.
