In Europe we are in the middle of what is called the 'silly season.' It's the time of year when the children break up for six or more weeks' summer vacation, when France shuts down for most of August and where Madrid is a ghost town. Enter SAP Info to provide erstwhile readers the opportunity for a chuckle:

Can you spot today's deliberate mistake? It's been like this since 25th July.

I guess it goes alongside that old saying: you can take the man out of SAP on-premise but you cannot take SAP on-premise out of the man.

      @mmarquis You have to admit the obvious superfluousness of it. Especially when digging up info on people you work with is easily done with gossip or the current social media sites already in use. Because it gets boring. At work.
