SAP slurps up Qualtrics for a cool $8bn, persuades firm not to IPO



As a customer something's been off for months. What was once a reliable platform was wonky as shit and sales teams were lying through their teeth to get us to stay another year, all starts making sense.

Good luck to SAP, they've bought a turkey, what was once the leading edge software has been quickly surpassed by those initially aping it and then capitalising on Qualtrics lack of movement over the last few years. I can get a system that offers all the features, plus a few more, for a whole decimal place less.

And I don't have to log several support tickets a day to get it to work.

And it's not blocked by the likes of Ghostery.

Yes. I threw that.

Unique is unique. A binary condition if you like.

It can not be partially, mostly, almost nor indeed 'very' unique.

Thank you please.....
