There is a saying that “Time is money,” and this is especially true for businesses where closing deals faster is of paramount importance to their revenue. In this era where information is easily available on the internet, customers are more informed than ever, they expect a quick response time. Even companies that have been very successful in the past are struggling to stay in the race as the business ecosystem has become highly competitive.
Individuals share their information with brands and organizations when they buy products or services, while attending events, and so on. They do this without any certainty that their information will be kept confidential or be passed on to other organizations. In addition, most of these organizations that collect information also pass it on to their own marketing teams and other organizations that want to target promotional materials to an audience of their choice. These organizations call these individuals and email them, often without their indication of interest or consent. Things become further complicated when these organizations get their hands on more critical information about individuals, such as that related to bank accounts, social security details, and political affiliations.
We aim for and take action based on (even though subconsciously) social proof in all spheres of life—inclusive of how we function and the buying decisions we make on the internet.

SAP introduced its C/4HANA system with a single user interface based on Microsoft Silverlight. Later on, SAP came up with another user interface by the name of HTML5, which is a more spontaneous and better-looking user interface than the previous one. With time, a great majority of the end and business users switched to the HTML5 user interface. And now, perhaps even more importantly, a third user interface is on hand in the SAP C/4HANA system, which is frequently made reference to as the Responsive User Interface — powered by Fiori.
