Although I am long on SAP, I have some second thoughts. My sister works with SAP software for a major German company, and hates it. She has horror stories to tell about user unfrienliness and wasted time and stupid ways to do things. This makes it very clear to me that SAP has a bad philosophy when it comes to designing software. I guess they never ask the user's input and like to force the users adapt to the software rather than the other way around. If I would have heard my sister's horror stories before I would not have bought SAP, for the time being I hope to make some reasonable profit and sell the stock. I do not want to be negative on SAP (hey I do own the stock), I just hope that their stupid managment gets the number one message in software design: GUIs that are user friendly is a must rather than a convenience or a luxary!!!! Maybe SAP managment concentrates too much on making a cheap buck by hiring bad COBOL programmers for Y2K retrofitting to introduce new software bugs in code that wasn't broke to begin with. Message to SAp is: please make your software user friendly and take care of your customers, otherwise someone else will!!!
