Interview with SAP CEO Henning Kagermann

In a TechRepublic interview, SAP's CEO Henning Kagermann talks about the role SOA plays in SAP's application strategy. Kagermann emphasizes that for him, SOA is not about integration only, but rather about re-architecting the software itself.

Many companies relying on packaged software from vendors such as SAP view the question of whether service-orientation stops at the application boundaries as a crucial challenge to implementing a consistent SOA vision. From this perspective, SAP's encouragement of SOA, as well as that of its competitors, such as Oracle, may be perceived as creating strong support for the concepts of service-orientation.
