  • ui5-webcomponents-react

    A wrapper implementation for React of the UI5 Web Components that are compliant with the SAP Fiori User Experience

    I think it's mostly the culture surrounding SAP. SAP developers are a lot of times slow to adapt to new technology. For the UI you can use react components https://sap.github.io/ui5-webcomponents-react/?path=/story/g... or you can just generate OData services from CDS Views that are then integrated into your frontend https://blogs.sap.com/2022/02/24/sap-cds-for-new-and-experie.... The problem is that a lot of people use SAP as a front end, which is wrong in my experience.

    > I feel there is a lot of room to develop better tools that are not so horrid, however, the process for replacing SAP will be long and close to impossible.

    Personally, I rather liked the approach that Oodoo takes: https://www.odoo.com/

    It tries to be pretty modular and even the cloud hosted plans can be mixed and matched, in addition to which the apps can be self-hosted for free: https://www.odoo.com/page/all-apps

    Of course, attempting to compare it to something like SAP is a bit like comparing OpenProject with Jira or something along those lines: where one of the solutions is way more popular and recognizable, even if the other could be serviceable in certain scenarios. It's pretty clear which one will be picked by most of the enterprises, though.
