Everytime I am going back China, I always try to answer a question – is China ready for SAP? The China Computerworld story may not state all the facts about SAP China. But I am convinced that China is not ready for SAP. Maybe we should phase the question differently. Is SAP ready for China? SAP is not just a software. It is an organization, a business process platform and an organizational culture. If SAP is just trying to sell software in China (at least SAP’s chinese customers’ perception), it will not be successful. China home grown ERP systems are much cheaper.
