Few crumbs for me in the December minutes of the BBC Executive Board, save for a slightly off-piste font selection by the author.

There may be something odd going on with Project Smart, which used to be called "an eighteen-month programme to reimplement SAP across the BBC". SAP is a suite of financial software - "enterprise resource planning" is one of the buzz words - in which the BBC has invested heavily, with nearly 5,000 licenced users reported in 2013. If they're like me, they'll have found it pretty counter-intuitive.

I note that the Project Director of Smart has been in post since November 2012; that the project came back to the Board in November 2013 with "a change in approach to infrastructure provision"; and that this is the December 2014 minute.
