Q: Will SAP technology get saturated in future?

A: of course, every technology becomes obsolete over time.

just think about Cobol, 8-track tapes, Sony Walkman... etc...

And my Walkman is just fine, thank you. Although it is a pain transferring music from iTunes to cassette tape.
Good luck!

I have a friend who has a Sony portable CD player thingy with a hinged lid.

He loves to skydive to music (Joe Satch....). The first time he used it he put his favourite CD in, went up to 17,000 feet, and jumped. Spent most of Sunday doing it. Then, back on the ground went to put his CD back into his car CD player and couldn't get the flip top lid of the portable player open... Air preassure sealed it shut!

The only way he could change CD's was to take the new one up with him and change it while he was up there, or take the current one out before his last jump of the day!! :D :D :lol:

@Juri.... How well are we doing on derailing the derailed ???

Are you all cooled down a bit now?

Let me start with shoes. Shoes are essential:

@Rich, looks more like re-railing.

By the way COBOL is far from obsolete. People who know it are all retired now, so anyone knowing and working is worth his own weight in gold.

One of the attractive things about programmers is that you cannot tell whether or not they are working simply by looking at them. Very often they're sitting there seemingly drinking coffee and gossiping, or just staring into space. What the programmer is trying to do is get a handle on all the individual and unrelated ideas that are scampering around in his head.
I bet the set {unrelated ideas} didn't include images of Fish in skull encrusted stillettoes and red satin gowns.....

Ahem, Yuri ... that might have been a tad unwise ... some of the "retirelings" are very much still around! (And some of them wear stilettoes ...

Well, "All" is a wrong word, I admit. But trend is in this direction.

Not so hasty there ...
As a result, today COBOL is everywhere, yet is largely unheard of among the millions of people who interact with it on a daily basis. Its reach is so pervasive that it is almost unthinkable that the average person could go a day without it. Whether using an ATM, stopping at traffic lights or purchasing a product online, the vast majority of us will use COBOL in one form or another as part of our daily existence.

The statistics that surround COBOL attest to its huge influence upon the business world. There are over 220 billion lines of COBOL in existence, a figure which equates to around 80% of the world's actively used code. There are estimated to be over a million COBOL programmers in the world today. Most impressive perhaps, is that 200 times as many COBOL transactions take place each day than Google searches - a figure which puts the influence of Web 2.0 into stark perspective.

Every year, COBOL systems are responsible for transporting up to 72,000 shipping containers, caring for 60 million patients, processing 80% of point-of-sales transactions and connecting 500 million mobile phone users. COBOL manages our train timetables, air traffic control systems, holiday bookings and supermarket stock controls. And the list could go on.
