  28. 28. 12. What do you think SAP is doing that will positively impact your current custom web-applicationsand/or your future custom web-application development?Response Rate: 78% (N=21) Answers •  Enhancing developer productivity tools such as NetWeaver Developer Studio (NWDS) to be a single development tool to handle development using various technologies (WD4A, WD4J, VC, ...) including development of Mobile Apps (jQuery Mobile/HTML5/ AJAX). NWDS integration with NWDI to seamlessly transport the developed applications across the system landscape i.e. DEV, QA & Production. •  Java - HTML5 and BPM, Portal Enhancements. On ABAP - Performance, in-memory (HANA), BO and Javascript integration •  Integration of Standard Java UI •  focusing on User Experience....dont just throw applications out there without making them look appealing and user friendly. This causes our company to make rash decisions like perhaps rebuilding the web dynpro abap applications in share point technology. •  Ease of integration with ECC and other Netweaver based systems •  Cross-browser support with upcoming support for Chrome and other browsers. Customers expect support for browsers other than IE. Also, the fact that SAP is planning to incorporate HTML5 support in its core development tools(Web Dynpro ABAP, Portal) ensures that the platform will stay current and relevant even after a few years. •  Moving towards standard HTML5/JEE technologies. •  eliminating flash from VC for IOS devices •  We are primarily still a 4.6C centric environment. •  It is good to see that SAP embraces the open standards like HTML5 and released UI5 library. We have heavy investment on Webdynpro Java UI and would like to see the replacement development tool (IDE), which uses HTML5. On the web development, we have vision of developing once for all clients and would like to see the common development platform for web and mobile application development. •  Support proposed for HTML 5 ©  2012 SAP AG.

  29. 29. 12. What do you think SAP is doing that will positively impact your current custom web-applicationsand/or your future custom web-application development?Response Rate: 78% (N=21) Answers •  Acknowledging role of open source frameworks - and potentially embracing them. •  Release of NetWeaver Gateway provides good opportunity to standardise on stateless loosely coupled UIs. SAPUI5 looks good, however the fact that the first release was targeted at desktops rather than mobiles is perplexing (especially given SAPs mantra of mobile first). •  Developing a SAP HTML5 framework/tools. Continue to Enhance WDA and not just to focus on Mobile •  SAPUI5 looks to be a step in the right direction. Would like to see it replace WDA within the FPM framework. •  Investigation of HTML5 and other techniques. •  Integration with open and non-sap technology. •  yes, but we will have to look at it more closer, specially in regards to support of old applications •  Mobile strategy •  Easy customizing for screen •  Mobile strategy is key ©  2012 SAP AG.

  30. 30. 13. What do you think SAP is doing that will cause problems in your current custom web-applications and/or your future custom web-application development?Response Rate: 78% (N=21) Answers •  SAP should continue to support the development of older applications (WebDynpro Java) since there has been significant investment in developing these applications and it consumes too much effort (cost, resources, time) to re-write these applications in newer technologies •  Performance and complexity •  Web Dynpro ABAP •  keep throwing applications out there without making them look appealing and user friendly. •  Portal platform needs to take open source frameworks to keep abreast with technology. SAP portal platform is a laggard in the industry. •  Maintainability is a concern with HTML5. Javascript-based UIs tend to be difficult to maintain. That is usually not a concern in regular wesite development because the lifespan of such websites is very less. But when used for building Enterprise applications which are expected to be used for 5 to 10 years, the maintainence issues caused by spagetti Javascript can be huge. Hopefully the HTML5 portion of SAPs Unified Rendering framework will somehow be designed to avoid freestyle difficult to maintain coding. •  WDJ lack of migration path to JEE. Also lack of JEE 6 support and unclear roadmap from SAP. •  eliminating pars, changing frameworks, eliminating depracted java methods •  N/A •  There is a lack of clarity on this subject and it will be best for SAP to publish the roadmap on Web Applications - esp the technologies to be used (WDA or WDJ or BSP). SAP says WDA but it is very SAPish and not suitable as a UI for External apps. Browser support is also a concern. Integrated ITS is too slow for Manufacturing/Shop floor transactions. •  Currently, we dont have clear roadmap for web UI (Non-ABAP) development. It is higly critical for us to have a clear roadmap for custom web application development including toolsets. ©  2012 SAP AG. All rights reserved. 30
  31. 31. 13. What do you think SAP is doing that will cause problems in your current custom web-applications and/or your future custom web-application development?Response Rate: 78% (N=21) Answers •  Insufficient focus on Portal integration for new products Stopping enhancement on Visual Composer Putting all efforts behind WebDynpro •  Trying to mandate use of Gateway onto developers. Usage charges on technology rather than applications. Not providing developers with easy access to SAP tools and technology. •  Licensing approach for NetWeaver Gateway is perplexing. We have been asked to estimate in advance our invocations through that server to get a license cost. That is unreasonable for SAP customers to do that (after all, SAP itself didnt correctly estimate the load on the new SCN). A poor licensing model will limit uptake of the product by customers, and possibly limit the development of UIs that utilise it. •  Continue to support Flash plugin •  n/a We are working on a brand new enhancement pack 6 implementation so some of the questions here arent really relevant to us yet... •  Negative usage for overly frameworked applications in WDA/WDJ. Drives down usability satisfaction of end-users - key gaps for external customer/supplier. •  Compatability of WDP and mobile devices •  Depends, we have custom WDJ and HTMLB apps that need to analyzed and the effort needed to bring them to HTML5 •  Mobile strategy •  non ©  2012 SAP AG.
