But software giant SAP has set ambitious goals for its cloud unit. Can it reach them?
SuccessFactors CEO Lars Dalgaard now leads the company's entire cloud business (with the exception of business commerce network Ariba, which remains independent).
To help him oversee the new business unit, Dalgaard recently hired two new presidents
The verdict so far:
"With SuccessFactors now officially folded into the larger company's cloud business unit, a growing leadership team that reports to Dalgaard, and sales people who are actively selling both traditional and cloud-based software, we may soon find out whether that bet will pay off."
