The generic "R/3 people from
yesterday" requirements are pretty much done. We now need very select skills. Being able to have a way to review who has demonstrated them well and who has succeeded is an important thing. What
were particular pain-point skill sets that you were hearing about from the ASUG membership? Strout: It's definitely the newer stuff. Getting coders is not that difficult, but there is always a
skills shortage of really good Basis [Administration] people. I'm not real sure why that is; it's just history within the business. When I was a CIO, it was always tough to find really good,
talented Basis people, though you can find lots of mediocre ones. [The skills gap] is definitely on the NetWeaver stack and the newer stuff. I wouldn't say cutting edge, necessarily, but cutting
edge in the SAP environment.

SAP purposefully did not include any of its own folks in the

Suite 7 is a really good evolutionary step. With previous SAP versions, every technical upgrade took 3-6 months and 15 people. Last year, we did four upgrades, which is roughly the equivalent of
15 man-years. With the new modular approach in Business Suite 7, we can reduce that time and redeploy those people to do things that are more important. That's the big difference. New Business
Suite 7 deployments involve normal system implementation with all the change processes and job redesign that entails.
