Over half of the book is other people's quotes - ...more

I was fortunate to receive a preview copy. This is a fascinating look into SAP--the company, its software, and its customers. Mirchandani takes an in-depth look, relying not only on his own experience with the company but also on interviews with many customers and employees. He tracked changes over time, asked a lot of questions, and was able to aggregate his findings into a highly readable exposé. This book was many years in the making and worth the wait.

This book is is a fantastic analysis about SAP and its impact on the global software economy. The author is a critic of some SAP strategies, but I believe the book is very well balanced, researched and has many customer examples. If you want to understand the SAP ecosystem, its pros and cons and how to be able to understand and survive a SAP implementation or upgrade please read this book.
