SAP's organisation in America is strong enough to survive the departure of its former head, Paul Wahl, SAP chairman and co-founder Hasso Plattner, insisted this week.
Speaking at SAP's annual user conference, Sapphire in Los Angeles, Plattner said Wahl had decided to leave because he fallen in love with a Silicon Valley based encryption firm. "If an organisation is in good shape it can survive these things," he said.
SAP America has already been reshuffled, with former number two Kevin McKay being promoted, and Jerry Coote, SAP America president taking on responsibilities for sales as well as training and education.
Plattner admitted that senior executives were having to take on heavier workloads as a result, but said this was not causing undue strain.
