Be successful with SAP CRM

While technology and functionality are improving, how do we make sure an SAP CRM implementation is successful?
Why is it that still from time to time an (SAP) CRM implementation fails?

As a consultant it is painful to see a good solution not being used or is not properly implemented.


In this blog I will focus on how to do a succesful CRM project.

This is not based on research, but based on many years experience with SAP projects. I have collected some rules which can help a project to become a successful project.

Make SMP iOS development easier with Cocoapods

I’ve been working quite some time with SAP Mobile Platform (SMP). As a developer I always hated to handle all the dependencies that comes with importing the iOS libraries into your project. When maintaining multiple projects with SMP Native SDK and multiple versions, this could be very hard to maintain. Each application has to import these libraries and setting the frameworks & library dependencies. 
Then I was thinking: “Why not using a dependency manager for this?”. iOS has a great dependency manager to handle this kind of stuff called Cocoapods ( http://cocoapods.org ). I’ve been working with Cocoapods in some projects now and didn’t find anything about SMP Libraries so I figured it out.

Deadlinemonitoring in SAP Workflow

With SAP workflow, flexibility can make complexity.

When properly implemented though, SAP workflow makes a very solid basis for process automation.

In the past, I have written some blogs on SAP workflow, but so far, I have never mentioned the use of deadline monitoring.
Deadline monitoring is an easy to implement feature of SAP workflow, that helps the process in having tasks being performed on time.

Omni-commerce with Hybris: the future of online and offline shopping

Today’s blog is about the future of e-commerce.

It’s Saturday morning, May 16th, 2017. Janet is shopping in a mall and receives a text message on her smartphone. It’s a personal reminder of her favorite fashion store. The dress she recently look at on her notebook now has a discount! She is close and visits the store.

This example sounds as something for the future, but experts agree that it won’t take long before this will be very common. The boundaries between on and offline purchases fade. Businesses are searching for new models to sell. Even supermarkets sell groceries online. And look at some fashion stores that use tablets in the stores to immediately order garments that are not in stock. And online web shops open physical stores to increase sale and interaction with their customers.
