VC Fred Wilson: By 2020 Apple Won’t Be A Top-3 Tech Company, Google And Facebook Will. Fred Wilson of New York’s Union Square Ventures, one of the top tech investors around, believes that by 2020, the biggest tech company in the world — Apple — will cease to be the most important, and won’t even be in the top three.
Speaking at today’s TC Disrupt conference in NYC, he predicted that the top three tech companies, instead, will be Google, Facebook “and one that we’ve never heard of.” Why? Apple, he believes, is “too rooted to hardware,” with not enough tied into the cloud, and that will make it too much of a challenge for it to evolve going forward. “I think hardware is increasingly becoming a commodity,” he said. “Their stuff in the cloud is largely not good. HANA Visionary Vishal Sikka Resigns From SAP. This afternoon, SAP announced in a statement that Vishal Sikka, Executive Board Member for Products and Innovation, has resigned for personal reasons.
The resignation was effective immediately. At the same time, SAP named a couple of new executive board members, including Robert Enslin and Bernd Leukert. The news could indicate some disarray or possibly a power struggle at the software giant, especially coming so close to its SAPPHIRENow Conference, which is scheduled for June 3-5th in Orlando. R Ray Wang, co-counder and analyst at Constellation Research said, the announcement could indicate that power is shifting at the board level. It’s worth noting that Sikka lead the development of HANA, SAP’s big in-memory database product, which the company has up until now seen as a foundational technology. Wang says this marks a big change at SAP, especially since he said that many had seen Sikka as a possible candidate for CEO down the road.
