fighting the license agreement
This is a little blog, telling a story. Telling a story about a frustrated administrator. My story began with an interesting badge in my SCN Profile Page.
Hmmmm SAP Lumira what’s that? I jumped to the SAP Lumira page and what I saw was very interesting! A new visualization tool for SAP BO. In the FAQ I read: “no costs”, huhaaa great. A quick and uncritical decision process rushed through my brain.
I WANNA SEE IT!!!
I downloaded the free trial version. I started the setup.exe and a screen with the license agreement appeared. I read the license agreement and a big Hmmmmm came out of my lips. Yes I know a usual user don’t read texts in dialogs. He always pushes the Yes or Next button. But I’m an administrator. I always read dialogs (most of it)! And after the first tree sentences I was confused. I didn’t understand what they want to tell me. Am I allowed to use it or not? After reading the whole text I understood. I have to be a lawyer to understand the license agreement. I acted like I always do when I have to decide if I spend my own money to s.th. or not.
If I don’t understand it, I don’t do it.
