Next Nucleus Top 10 Predictions for 2012-4 Next

OK, this is one prediction Nucleus may have missed in 2010 – but they also have to admit that they’ve seen a lot of big changes in SAP and in the business environment in the past year. SAP revenues have gone up and the company has introduced innovations in areas like mobile device access. They’ve started to see real traction with Business ByDesign. This is partly because customers that have growth aspirations are also risk averse given the economy: they want to put in business-class financial controls earlier rather than later. This is also because cloud delivery makes Business ByDesign less onerous to support than traditional ERP deployments. Some wondered if a dual-CEO role would work at the behemoth, but their take is that Leo’s departure was the best thing to happen to SAP in a while (in hindsight, HP probably agrees). SAP still needs to focus on maximizing the value its customers achieve, but it has created a lot of opportunities for innovation in its ecosystem. What a difference 19 months makes!

Tight capital budgets, the European banking crisis, and the unending U.S. budget debate make predictability – and taking on less risk – even stronger themes for 2012. In the technology world, mobility, the cloud, and big data (very large data sets and their related challenges) are a few of the trends driving Nucleus Research’s 2012 predictions.
