SAP and Waste Management Settle Lawsuit
Waste Management sued SAP for fraud in March 2008 over an allegedly failed implementation of its enterprise resource planning (ERP) software. The trash-disposal company estimated damages at more than $100 million for the project and more than $350 million for benefits if the software implementation was successful.
SAP responded with charges that Waste Management didn’t “timely and accurately define its business requirements” nor provide “sufficient, knowledgeable, decision-empowered users and managers” to work on the project, according to BusinessWeek.
SAP spokesman Andy Kendzie told BusinessWeek via e-email that “the matter between Waste Management and SAP has been resolved, and the case has been dismissed.” No further details were provided.
SAP is one of many software companies that are now offering carbon management modules as part of their enterprise offerings.
