5 Ways to Simplify SAP Do you think ERP systems are too complicated? Here are some innovative answers backed by technology that is available today. We are in the 21st century so thinking outside the box and ingenuity is essential in this day and age. The stage has changed and here is the full story:
Why fight against it? It is understood that running SAP from Excel could be risky unless you place effective control and governance around it (read on to learn how). Once you have the governance in place, build an effective bridge between Excel and SAP and see the how productivity increases. Enable those who love Excel, and connect them to SAP, right from Excel while controlling them with all existing SAP security that you have put in place. If you are still worried that SAP security is not enough for a mass processing tool running from Excel, consider putting an additional layer of technical (read "hard stop") control in place and deploy your SAP and Excel solution responsibly. See this fast paced, 90 second video to learn more.
Use SAP from email!
While on the road or in the office, email is essential to everyday business (yes, "The Best Businesses Run SAP" but email runs the good, the bad and the ugly - all kinds!). Why not use Email to talk to SAP?
It might sound like an over stretched idea but you can do hundreds of tasks by simply sending an email to Innowera Email Runner and it will carry the command to your SAP system on your behalf. How about requesting material stock or availability via email? Or customer/vendor balances? Or request the last few sales orders from the customer that you are about to visit. How about approving purchase requisitions or orders, leave requests, or doing many other such tasks by simply replying to an email?
You can do all of these (and hundreds of others commands) by simply sending an email to Innowera Email Runner. Innowera Email Runner is an innovative new technology that enables you to run SAP from your email. Send an email to Innowera Email Runner and your wish is carried out as a command in SAP. In a few seconds you will receive an answer back with what you requested. Innowera Email Runner uses powerful Process Runner technology, so you can execute standard as well as custom transactions, tasks and APIs, in an SAP landscape, without installing, changing, or performing any programming in SAP.

Mobility will happen sooner than you think!
Why not work with your enterprise system as well? The problem is, you would face challenges when trying to mobilize SAP: Can you justify a 6-month lead time and hundreds of thousands of price tags to do a simple Approval or Stock Query? Yes, it’s possible to deploy usable technology in weeks and on a shoe string budget and yes it can meet all the security challenges like any other system you know today.
Mobility will happen sooner than you think. Once you use it, it will give you a familiar feeling. Why I did not think of this earlier? When it comes to mobile, think differently and look at all the options - not just the most expensive one. The mobility power-struggle is not just between Apple and Samsung; it is on an application level as well. Use it to your advantage and dare to select this new but sensible technology. Bigger is not necessarily better when it comes to SAP mobility at this point.
Don't forget the simpler ways. We all use the Web every single day.
Use SAP from a browser of your choice. This can be particularly useful where you have users doing only few transactions in SAP and significant training may not be justified. Check out Innowera Web Runner where you can build HTML 5 enabled SAP processes without any programming and coding, yet allow them to use a browser and restrict them with SAP security that is already in effect. Simplify multiple screens to one and let them use the power of Web and SAP from one place.
Take this one step further: If you have already built a web interface or database front end. There is a way to connect your MS-SQL (or other popular databases) and execute SAP Transactions and BAPIs (download from SAP to your database) with tool like Process Runner DB without much of hassle. If you have ever wondered why there is no easy way to connect your database application to SAP without needing a big project effort you’re not alone. Good news is that we have an answer to your simple request and we have a free evaluation license for you to begin testing.
