I’m learning SAP in my latest business processes class and it’s pure torture. The amount of mental calories it takes to do a simple task is comparable to lugging a 50lbs slab of ice up several flights of stairs.
I understand the underlying database capabilities are useful and likely loved by businesses all over the world, but for someone who plans to never use SAP in the future it is literally torture.
I’ve spent the good part of the last 10 years exclusively using products with useful user interfaces and ignoring anything wasting my time and energy. I don’t have a choice at this juncture. I have to submit to my minor and trudge along with the mind numbing and laborious land of SAP-hell.
It’s worse than learning a language because there is no reason for the absurd maze of a system which doesn’t belong in the 21st century. Kill this software, please. The world would be a better place as the poor (but likely well-paid) employees would gain back considerable mental abilities otherwise wasted typing in arbitrary four-character codes.
My dream for the universe at this exact moment in time is kill SAP and leave it behind. Like all dreams, they’re just that, an ideal trapped in the inner-workings of the human mind. The reality is a nightmare with which I must endure for another 12 weeks concluding with me chugging several pints of lager to wash away the torment of another inefficiency plaguing the human mind.
