SAP to Standardize Interface

Susan Hall

SAP, continuing to work on ways to get you people to move to its latest software, in its latest gambit says it will create a unified interface across its suite of business applications to make it all easier to implement, reports InfoWorld.


Said co-CEO Leo Apotheker:

The next version of our Business Suite will have one harmonic view.

The story says an interface based on its current CRM module has been released for limited testing.


Meanwhile, eWEEK's Michael Vizard found Apotheker's logic a bit fuzzy when he said the company is delaying release of its software-as-a-service Business ByDesign to keep it from hurting the company's bottom line by discouraging purchase of its on-premise software. Customers, Vizard surmises, could take the same tactic to protect their own companies' bottom line by not spending money on new software during these turbulent economic times.
