Don't get me wrong, we at BestXperts are diehard SAP fans. After all, we earn our living by implementing SAP software. But there are times when we just can't stop ranting about SAP idiosyncrasies that drive us crazy. Most of these rants boil down to one common trend - SAP is unnecessarily difficult. Some of this stems from the fact that SAP has turned into a behemoth with a number of large acquisitions in the last 5 years which seems to have impacted SAP's ability to execute quickly and with acceptable level of quality. Other times we get really frustrated with SAP's "enterprisy" approach to such things as mobility and web services which feel very bloated when compared with the modern technologies and approaches used in those areas in the consumer space.
So we decided to do what we do best - dream a little. What would an ERP system look like if it was built today, in 2012, making use of the current trends and technological advancements in the software development space?
