Microsoft-LinkedIn deal decoded: Google can relax, Oracle and SAP should worry | Hindustan Times

Microsoft-LinkedIn deal decoded: Google can relax, Oracle and SAP should worry: "I think the deal is neutral to Google, and slightly negative to Facebook, only because Zuckerberg had some dreams about building a professional side to the network and probably will be less motivated to do so now. But I believe the deal is hugely threatening to SAP, Oracle and Salesforce. It can change the very nature of B2B IT strategy – and potentially create a huge barrier that can lock out these mega-billion dollar players from the big buyers. CIOs will be interested to know how it can change their company’s life. And if Microsoft plays its cards well, change it can. Startups CEOs can benefit too. Can they have their appointment calendars and email on Outlook auto-filled with data about the people they’re meeting and writing to from LinkedIn? Maybe. Can LinkedIn messaging do a better job than Slack can? Foreseeably. Can it be a great plug-in? Sure."

SAP TIP: Running LSMW in the background

There are 3 main executable tasks. As long as these can run  in the background and their results can be placed on the application server then the process can be run in the background.

After creating your LSMW proceed as follows:

1) Go to the step called “Specify Files” and check the file name for: Imported Data File for Imported Data (Application Server)
2) Go to the step called “Specify Files” and check the file name for: Converted Data File for Converted Data (Application Server)
3) Proceed through all steps manually in the foreground including the Read data step if you are loading a file from the front-end.
4) Go to the “Convert Data” step and check the program name of this step by using the menu path: System–>Status. On the same screen (selection parameter screen for “Convert Data”) save the selection parameters as a variant. This saves the Application Server file names for background processing.
5) Go to SM36 and define a background job with program step, using: The Convert Data program name and variant in step 4.
