How SAP Screen Personas benefit the Business Process
SAP Screen Personas, as the name indicates, personalizes the screen which business user’s work with. It also completely changes the perspective with which one looks into core business applications. The concept of screen personalization is gaining momentum across users throughout the globe, particularly those in key operational roles such as HR, production, finance etc. Though classic SAP solutions are user-friendly when compared to other solutions in the market, a business user will always be looking for a more user-friendly UI, more flexible and a simpler mechanism to execute their business process. Keeping all user requirements and preferences in mind, SAP came up with SAP Screen Personas. So, it is basically a UI tool that delivers a new personalization options for modifying SAP GUI Screens.
