Yes, that's true. When we say a solution is localized the knowledge to implement that is again in the hands of limited people--global SIs and a small set of other partners. There is a huge partner community that has to be educated and enabled. We are bridging the gap by organizing partner summits and webinars on focused topics of interest for technical personnel in partner organizations. These are ongoing efforts and will show results over a period of time.
CW: Will localized solutions from SAP Labs go to other markets as well?
Yes, it has already started happening. We have a German customer who has bought a localized business suite which it plans to implement back there. This is one of the first instances, and will become the norm in the future.
