People will prefer to retain their current user experience. People love Office. You can connect SAP [to Office] so they don't need to leave their comfort zone.“ -- Shai Agassi, President, SAP Product & Technology Group “ It is important to simplify and improve the user experience associated with enterprise applications interaction. Specifically, today most enterprise applications have Web-based user interfaces, but knowledge workers often find that these user interaction models are less intuitive to use and interfere with their daily work in Microsoft Office. “
