One question remains
Considering the fact that per week approx. 800 people can be trained in SAP’s international training center in Walldorf in how to use applications and that these and other SAP courses are not really cheap, the question arises on how much revenue SAP will suffer due to the establishment of UI5. When people need less training and less support in their daily business, it’s great for their own productivity, but SAP and other trainers might miss a few euros or dollars. So why is SAP relying on UI5 and therefore on easier operation of its own products? Well, the company has indeed been under massive pressure – more and more software vendors are relying on user-oriented applications, especially in the segment of business solutions. Nobody needs an extra course or training for that. Even though SAP is clearly the leader in ERP, the company cannot afford to oversleep this changed software usage.
For all companies that use SAP, according to SAP itself, these are more than 355,000 customers in over 180 countries, Fiori is the step into the simpler (mobile) future. In the meantime, no one will convince an employee with a user interface that is more than 15 years old. With Fiori, SAP meets at least in part the slogan of 2015,”run simple”.
We say “run it really simple with the Simplifier”. With our low-code platform, we also rely on the UI5 framework. The Simplifier is the world’s only low-code platform for integrated UI5 business and IOT applications. Or in short: A UI5 app that generates UI5 apps. With the Simplifier, we integrate existing system landscapes and generate applications that run on any device to create added value for the user. Wearables can be included in the process without any problems, too. We are convinced that SAP has created a modern and robust framework with UI5, which is excellently suited for many purposes. And SAP developers make SAP systems easy to use for the user by implementing the UI5 strategy.
