Born in the USA: German-speaking users fail to take up SAP's acquired business apps


Companies develop very unique ways to do their accounting so one barrier is companies have to change their accounting practices to fit into the editorial provided by the software company. Software companies in this space develop elaborate customization features based on what they see in their markets.

Because SAP and the US LOBs developed in differing markets they will have different editorials on accounting baked into their software. The number of customers where the fit is great out of the box will be a subset.

Over the long term SAPs implementations will evolve to be more customizable to reach the same customers. No one in this world is positioned to steal their lunch and this suite with criss LOB integrations will quietly run everywhere, in every major company and every government on the planet. Just give it a couple decades.

Dropbox would rather write code twice than try to make C++ work on both iOS and Android


Just stupid. Use flutter

I multitarget everyday using flutter. I'm a lone dev that doesn't even know iOS that well yet I can deploy to an old 5s from my hackintosh VM just fine.

This is really a company fearing learning a new language (Dart) more than anything. Dart is so banal any dev can learn it.

Ever wondered why tech products fail so frequently? No, me neither


Gosh. Yet another argument for BDD!

Instead of forcing creative multi-discipline IT journalists into their weakest skill set, engerineering teams should wrap all their code with tests. Maybe stuff would break less.
