News from SAPPHIRE

First, I believe that I need to introduce myself.

My name is Glauber, and I work as ERP architect for the last 3 years, designing and supporting since minor enhancements and service designs to big mergers and acquisitions… So, I really like SAP, technology, innovation… it is my “core”!



I went to SAPPHIRE in Orlando, and I get happy with the message that is coming from SAP.

They are – finally – concerned about the user friendliness of their system!!!

The news related to the release of SAP FIORI and Screen Personas for free, for instance, shows a new strategy and perspective for this relationship between SAP and their customers.

SAP has been talking a lot about HANA in the last months (maybe years) and they forgot a little bit, about the core of the system. The users!

This new message means that finally we are going to have a user friendly interface for the end users, especially with other subjetcts, like openUI5 for instance.

My perception about the presentations given me the idea that SAP FIORI and openUI5 will be the core of the new users interfaces.

But, does it means that ABAP and SAP GUI is going to die?

Well, we have 2 situations.

According to some other SAP and ASUG events that I have participated, the ABAP development still as a “hot topic” in the next few years, while NW still alive in the market (which means “a lot” of years yet…) but even then, with a different “way of work”, increasing some ideas like the integration of HANA paradigm, for instance. Said that, I believe that even the current “ABAPers” in the market will be obligated to renew their development skills. And it is great, in my opinion.

About the SAP GUI, however, I have bad news… The message from SAP is clear for me. They are going to rebuild the solutions in a different way, to be more user friendly with different ideas and paradigms. (again, FIORI and openUI5….) \o/

Of course, these are only my “feeling”…

Let’s follow the news…


See you!

      Hi Glauber,

      it was nice meeting you yesterday at SAP Inside Track São Leopoldo. I liked your session about SAP Accelerators for Merges and Acquisitions.

      I don't know if you are aware, but there is an openSAP course currently available about SAP User Experience Strategy: SAP UX Strategy in a Nutshell by Sam Yen

      As the name says, this MOOC has Sam Yen as the instructor. Sam is SAP chief design officer. I have finished this training in the same day, it's a short one. It's very interesting.

      Thanks Raquel!

      I will check these trainings out.


      By the way, I would like to receive your presentation as well. We are implementing the new SolMan and that would be a good support information to sell the ChaRM process to the whole team.
