SAP: Ehemaliger Mitarbeiter erhebt schwere Vorwürfe gegen SAP - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Hinter den Kulissen tobt um die Entwicklungsgeschichte des Erfolgsprodukts indes seit Jahren ein erbittert und mit harten Bandagen geführter Streit, der mittlerweile auch Gerichte und Behörden in Deutschland und den USA beschäftigt. Ausgerechnet ein Mitarbeiter der internen SAP-Revision, der mit einer Untersuchung ("Audit") über den Entwicklungsprozess von Hana befasst war, wirft dem Unternehmen vor, sich bei der Entwicklung eigener Produkte wie Hana am geistigen Eigentum von Wettbewerbern wie Oracle, IBM und Teradata bedient zu haben. Der bislang unbekannte Vorgang geht aus internen SAP-Dokumenten sowie Gerichtsunterlagen hervor, [...] Für SAP sind die Vorwürfe gefährlich, denn das Unternehmen ist einschlägig vorbelastet. In den vergangenen Jahren musste es Wettbewerbern wie Oracle Chart zeigen bereits hunderte Millionen Dollar an Schadensersatz überweisen. [...] [ $25m fuer sich zu fordern war dumm. Super naive. Schweigegeld oder was? ]

Twitter works just fine – but for investors, anything except total market domination is a disaster | Comment is free | The Guardian
Nothing better illustrates capitalism’s addiction to illogic than the mismatch between Twitter’s workability and its unpopularity with Wall Street [...] Any company that cannot demonstrate a clear route to monopolising its space, monetising its users’ data on a vast scale, is to be discarded, targeted for acquisition, consigned to perpetual dowdiness. [...] When I’ve pointed to Wikipedia, Apache or Linux as harbingers of a new, non-market, open source economics, one of the stock responses is: “now show us something more spectacular.” The problem is, these modest, functional and free products are already in their own way spectacular. Wikipedia is the biggest information product in the world; Apache runs half the world’s web servers; and Linux is the system of choice for at least a third of all servers (the computers that run businesses) and 97% of the world’s supercomputers.

Anreiz fuer higher education. // Germany NEEDS immigration - because of demographic bubble. Period. Either get people in Germany and the jobs of the Future. Or let the jobs go away to where the human capital and cognitive resources are. Period. // self-awareness of women is through the ranks lower compared to men. it comes from society, media, childhood, parenting. // thus lack of strong women. lack of Female Founders too. // Experiment showed:: Women react discouraged during competition with Men, but competition Woman-Woman shows no such signs of lack of wanting to compete. ...

Startups: Wagniskapital - Deutschland scheut das Risiko - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Manchmal rappt Horowitz seinen Rat an Jungunternehmer und formuliert seine Management-Tipps mit Hilfe von Songtexten bekannter HipHop-Künstler. Wenn Gründer mehr Mut beweisen sollen, bedient er sich etwa bei Ice Cube und rät: "If you are scared motherfucker, go to church." Die Lobby von Andreessen Horowitz in einem eleganten Flachbau am Rande von Menlo Park ist dekoriert mit Originalaufnahmen von Atombombentests. Das alles wirkt manchmal etwas brachial. Aber trifft man Horowitz in seinem Büro, erlebt man einen sehr freundlichen Mann in Pulli, Jeans und Turnschuhen, der während des ganzen Gesprächs nicht einmal die Stimme hebt. [...] Dann spricht er lange und ausführlich über Regulierung und Arbeitsmarktgesetze in Deutschland. Dass es drei Monate dauere, ein Unternehmen zu gründen. Dass, wenn es nicht gut läuft, kaum eine andere Möglichkeit bleibe, als "gleich ganz zuzumachen", weil nicht schnell und einfach Personal abgebaut werden könne. Dass es an Unternehmergeist mangele. ...

As Software Firms Merge, Synergy Is Elusive - WSJ.com
While the voluminous deal activity has meant a bonanza for shareholders -- many software stocks have soared this year, partly because of the hot merger landscape -- Mr. Gonick's experience highlights the flip side: As the big software companies flesh out their integration plans internally, customers on the outside are left with unanswered questions about their future.

But that isn't the only thing that has changed in recent years. Today, many of the companies being acquired aren't start-ups. They're established, profitable companies with a slew of customers.

This has left CIOs and information technology departments with less influence in negotiating software discounts because there are fewer vendors to pit against each other at the bargaining table, though customers can also potentially lower maintenance and integration costs by buying more software from a single vendor, says Eliot Colon, chief operating officer at Miro Consulting Inc., a software-licensing consultancy in Fords, N.J.
