SAP’s Grim Warning Is Weighing on Enterprise Software Stocks, Including IBM

Text size

SAP reduced its overall revenue outlook for the current year and specifically trimmed expectations for its cloud-software business.

Alex Kraus/Bloomberg

The German software giant


lost nearly a quarter of its market valuation on Monday after the company issued a sobering update to its financial forecast for the rest of the year, along with weaker-than-expected third-quarter results.

The slide was weighing on shares of hardware and software companies with substantial exposure to enterprise information-technology spending.

While there has been much discussion about how the Covid-19 pandemic is driving an acceleration in “digital transformation,” the global economic downturn triggered by the outbreak has also spurred many affected companies to slow or reduce spending plans in response. In short, while the pandemic has helped a few well-placed tech companies—including

4 Vital Signs You Need to Watch to Keep Your Enterprise Healthy

Building a winning business is hard, but sometimes it’s difficult to tell if things are harder than they need to be.

It’s like you are in a long-distance bicycle race, and you find yourself pumping along as fast as you can, but you are struggling to keep up. You pedal harder, but other riders keep passing you by.

Perhaps that you aren’t as strong or haven’t trained as hard. Is your racing strategy insufficient? Or is there something else slowing you down — sand in the gears and it’s affecting your performance?

While you are in the race, it can be hard to know. Sometimes it’s the last thing you’d expect that becomes a major drag on your performance.

In business, it could be a long-standing employee who retires, taking decades of experience and processes out the door with them. That kind of institutional memory is difficult, if not impossible,

Choosing the Right SEO Agency for Enterprise SEO

Choosing the right SEO agency can be a daunting task in itself.

Considering the complexity of what is needed from an enterprise SEO agency adds an entirely new level that can be overwhelming.

With so many SEO agencies popping up all over, how do you know which ones truly know how to optimize a website with the latest in Google’s algorithms without trickery or spam?

My experience over the last 20 years has found me on both sides of the fence.

I started my career building an SEO agency from a few people and a handful of clients to more than 500 clients and 100+ employees in less than a year.

Cut to several years later (2006) and I’m on the other side for (at the time a very large company) and interviewing for agencies to provide extra support.

Since then I have worked for Concur, Smartsheet, ADP (managing

Hewlett Packard Enterprise will build a $160 milllion supercomputer in Finland

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) today announced it has been awarded over $160 million to build a supercomputer called LUMI in Finland. LUMI will be funded by the European Joint Undertaking EuroHPC, a joint supercomputing collaboration between national governments and the European Union. The supercomputer will have a theoretical peak performance of more than 550 petaflops and is expected to best the RIKEN Center for Computational Science’s top-performing Fugaku petascale computer, which reached 415.5 petaflops in June 2020.

Powerful computers allow researchers to undertake high volumes of calculations in epidemiology, bioinformatics, and molecular modeling that might take months on traditional computing platforms (or years if done by hand). And because these computers are available in the cloud, they enable teams to collaborate from anywhere in the world. For instance, insights generated by the experiments can help advance our understanding of key aspects of COVID-19, such as viral-human interaction, viral structure and
