        I see.
        Lately i'm living in my own bubble due Electronic Invoicing and the wonderful and great work SAP is doing with that, so I'm not really active outside my work :\
        And in Italy we do not have such news, true story :(

      Layoffs at SAP. It's all over the news / Twitter.

      I'm hoping this does not affect many good people we all know at SAP. Unfortunately, it's not unusual when a large company acquires other companies and that results in some human resource redundancies. Not implying this is the case (I simply don't know) but, from my experience, the news "Huge Company is laying off X people" frequently translates into "Huge Company bought a Slightly Smaller Company (SSC) not long ago and now that they've taken all they needed from it, they are letting go of all the remaining SSC employees".

      Really sucks for the employees nevertheless. You do a good job and then one morning get walked out the door. :(

      we, as members of the SAP ecosystem, don't really like the way this is unfolding. i don't know of a better way of doing this and it's a grim task for both the decision makers and those who are affected.

      let's hope this will be just a minor hiccup when looked at a few years from now.

      personally for me, it's a minor nuisance which only made me reset my password to stay here in the coffee corner if not in the cloud account for another 2 weeks or so, but i realize people's livelihoods are at stake and they may not be in the mood for any coffee or discussions.

      It was all over Twitter again. Sadly, my guess that it's just elimination of redundancies was too optimistic. Now this looks more like targeted cleansing of core employees. Thomas and Rich, mentioned in the article, were among most prominent figures. Many people I've known from SCN, sadly, were also affected, as I found out. Sad and confusing situation.

        Wow. I'm stunned. Thomas Jung and Rich Heilman?

        I'm not sure what to take from it. Some processing is required ...

    Here's another article on it:

    (Credit to who made me aware of it via Fediverse )

    I admit I haven't read it (yet), hope it's appropriate to still share!
