Title: Managing the Technology Acquisition Integration Paradox at SAP
Author: Henningsson, Stefan; Kude, Thomas; Popp, Karl Michael
Abstract: In this paper, we report on a novel approach developed by SAP AG, the German enterprise software company, for managing the integration of acquisitions of companies to access innovative technologies and related capabilities: the Product Council approach. The value of the Product Council approach rests in ensuring critical speed while not compromising accuracy in the integration process. For SAP, the Product Council became a vital component in its technology acquisition capability that allows the company to retain its technological edge in the hypercompetitive software industry.
