Having worked for and consulted within many companies that run SAP's ERP and having worked with the software for the majority of my career, I have one really big ‘pet gripe’.

Greetings Techies. Welcome back to our voyage into the world of re-imagining the SAP User Interface (UI) with SAP Screen Personas. We found ourselves in choppy waters from time to time but we successfully reached journeys end, and following from last week’s introduction to the topic, I will outline some of the key lessons I learned on how to approach this deceptively complex product.

To recap, our project brief was to transition 100s of users from a small & bespoke invoicing system, to SAP ECC with the minimal impact. Personas appeared to be the asnwer.

Are you at a crossroads in terms of where you want to take your SAP investment?
