Some #SAPZen Observations – Do you need to Code to Use?

My first blog dealt with installation of SAP Zen (Analysis Edition for Application Design).  The second blog dealt with deploying to the iPad.  Below are some more general observations.

In the general properties, there are two themes – one is SAP Platinum, and the other is Mobile.  After some testing it appears you should use the Platinum theme when deploying to the desktop and the Mobile theme (which is larger) when deploying to the iPad.

Mobile theme looks bad on the desktop, but on the iPad it is easier to read than Platinum theme.

Above is a sample of the Mobile theme on the desktop.

Sort controls are also available in run-time, without any additional work:

Sort controls work on the iPad as well.  The sort controls reminds me of Crystal functionality.  Note the above theme is using the SAP Platinum theme on the Desktop.

Most days I am more of a power user, so this is my perspective.  So far the tool (to me) appears to be easy to use. I have not written one line of code yet (no JavaScript).
