As I’m sure all of our loyal readers know, we returned from SAPPHIRE, SAP®’s annual international customer event a few weeks ago, and it was great! Not only did we get to meet and greet some awesome people, but it was a chance for us to really see what was going on in the SAP space.
Our commander-in-chief, Bill Yoh, participated in a panel called “Competing on Talent,” and discussed enterprise skills trends. Joining him on this panel was Jon Reed, who actually wrote up a nice blog post on the panel, and another on the overall conference that I recommend you check out.
So what did this panel discuss ERP skill sets? A bunch of different topics come to mind, including how the skill set is changing, and expectations must be modified as a result. Bill highlighted what he thought was key—that now, businesses don’t just need someone with technical skills, but rather, with a “trifold of needs.” Meaning that, sure, the tech skills are important, but so is a knowledge of the SAP space, and the functional skills associated with it.
Overall, it was a great discussion, and an interesting and informative conference to attend.

Greetings from sunny Orlando, host city of SAPPHIRE, SAP®’s annual international customer event! It’s a fitting location from which to be writing this post since the purpose of today’s post is to share with you some exciting news related to our SAP partnership…
So here it is. This morning we officially announced that Yoh and SAP are developing the next generation of the Yoh Exchange. (For those of you unfamiliar with the Yoh Exchange, it’s Yoh’s recruiting and HR Management portal that’s designed to help companies cut costs and improve their hiring process.) The new version will incorporate web-based talent planning, administration, policy and profile management and on-site customer support with the end goal of speeding time-to-fill, minimizing technology requirements and human resources costs, and enhancing talent quality.
We’ve signed an agreement with SAP to jointly market the Yoh Exchange as the leading choice for customers to integrate solutions for supply chain and talent management, and are really excited about this opportunity to expand our relationship with the company.
Be sure to check back later for more updates from SAPPHIRE.
