In his keynote address at SAPPHIRE NOW last week in Orlando, SAP CEO Bill McDermott wasted no time in setting the tone for the conference and establishing SAP’s mantra moving forward — “simplify everything.”
While McDermott’s unblinking confidence in SAP’s ability to usher in a new era of simplification in the dauntingly complex world of enterprise technology raised more than a few eyebrows, the great strides SAP has made over the past five years driving innovation powered by HANA across analytics, the cloud and mobility cannot be denied.
Today’s IT landscapes have become increasingly complex and costly, with multiple databases, datamarts and enterprise data warehouses needed to accommodate ever-increasing data volume generated by multiple ERP instances and numerous business applications — CRM, SRM, SCM, etc.
Announced at SAPPHIRE NOW to great fanfare, Fiori will now be included within underlying licenses of SAP software and provide a unique opportunity to simplify the user experience and build in efficiency for processing transactions. (Existing Fiori customers will receive a software credit redeemable against future software sales.)
