“Simplify Everything. Do Anything.”
Hasso Plattner stated SAP’s direction during his keynote presentation at Sapphire Orlando 2014.
He was joined onstage by Clayton Christensen, the Harvard Business School professor and author of “The Innovator’s Dilemma,” which broke the theory of disruptive change in business. It was clear that SAP is positioning the announcement of Simple Financials as just such a change, and I really couldn’t disagree. If the simplification is really as significant as Professor Plattner suggests it can be, the Finance departments in companies across the globe are going to be cheering.
You can see the technical transition for SAP Financials for an Invoice Posting, with the majority of the aggregate tables disappearing.
