Every second transaction

Shai has left SAP, but this video from last years TechEd conference is worth revisiting.

The quote that I like best is (at 0’57”):

Every second transaction in the world, at one point or another, goes through SAP systems.

That is a lot of transactions and a testament of SAP’s ability to scale.

    The marketing department! It makes a nice sound bite and SAP run some big systems in some big companies but I hear you James. There is a lot of wiggle room in ‘at one point or another’.
