In a not so distant future where we still would like to supply software, the primary user interaction with enterprise software will happen through natural language communication or someone else’s software. I strongly believe – together with others – that the days of specialised UI and applications offering UI, as we not it, are coming to an end. In essence it is about no-UI. From my perspective ERP is nothing more than a database containing structured data. It is – honestly – only marginally more complex than the underlying database engine itself.
