SAP makes not just steps but leaps since the introduction of own database SAP HANA. Most of them are dedicated to the server-side technologies, process logic. Simple Finance and Simple Logistics are only few new Simple products to name.
Of course, the SAP’s acquisition of Ariba helped the development of user interface a lot. But still not many users are happy. They still need to enter data, click buttons and download the reports. These are annoying and mostly routine operations.
SAP is here to help again. The new interface has been announced on a special conference today. It received the name Simple GUI. Let me show it it you.
Yes, you are right. This is THE interface all users, consultants and IT directors were looking for. It is extremely simple. There is only one button. It is extremely clear. It does everything in one simple step. It is not annoying.
This interface is available for both “classical” ERP systems, and HANA-based systems of those who already use HANA.
The only “but” that SAP announced today, the button can only be green. On a question about a different colour, the presenter from SAP GUI team quoted the famous phrase of Henry Ford:
Any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is black.
And yes… if you think about getting the interface installed on your SAP system, check the date!
