SAP ****s up its figures

,----[ Quote ]
| For a company that is meant to help enterprises gain better control of
| their financial and other business processes, there will be ashen faces
| at SAP after it put out preliminary Q2 figures with a glaring error. A
| least, an error that we spotted (so yes, well done CBR).
|
| [...]
|
| As it is, all it has lost is a little face. Still, these are after
| all unaudited figures, so surely the firm will have its figures
| correct once a few consultants have crawled all over them?
