Closing Frictionless

I've not heard any noise recently about where SAP is in closing its acquisition of Frictionless Commerce. If anyone has any good scoop, please chime in! But given that acquisition and due-diligence work is not the same core competency at SAP as it is at Oracle, I'm not surprised that we've not seen any news recently on the deal (nor am I worried if the closing date falls past the July guidance). Still, I wonder what -- if anything -- could be next up in the Waldorf SRM shopping cart. Might SAP's next move be to buy a real spend visibility solution? I don't know about you, but BW just does not do it for me. And I'd bet that there are a good many folks inside SAP who understand procurement that feel the same way.
