We need to stop working with the SBO asap!!

So, the goal is to stop working with SAP.

Why?

1. Not clear and expensive licenses for each custom “module” that one of the providers creates and then there is no going back, because after a few months that provider got you by your “cohones”.. You, as a company, became dependent on him and can’t re-implement the business logic.

2. Any change to that module will cost you more time and money, and will get you through a hell of bad support, opening tickets with several contact guys, connecting through your company IT firewall, wasting time connecting to internal servers, etc.

3. If you use, God forbid, a cloud, and publishing there your app services, you would need to implement a custom API connection to the SBO, which again will take you through that whole never-ending and uncontrollable nightmare.

Now that we know that SAP is 😈 evil..

So, what can you do..? What would be your alternative?

P.S.

Of course, the restraint is coming from the company you work in and not always you can act even if an alternative is found.
