SAP Discovers Proof That They're Human

Really felt that despite what happened, Coghead's fall isn't entirely surprising given the number of startups faltering (even the biggies) amidst this dire economic situation. It is true that they've put their customers through pain as a result but it is not as though their service fell and dissolved into the cloud.

On the contrary, it is still a cloud! Just that there's new wind behind it - called SAP. And to just tell the customers that al they wanted is the intellectual property, not the customers, doesn't sound 'humane'. Not entirely blameless, I reckon.

Seems like they felt it, too and are now forming a team to help with SaaS integration concerns.

Spare dime? Maybe but kudos for the effort!
