WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW IS “SIMPLE”

At the end of 2009, 5% of the world’s population owned smartphones. Four years later, that figure jumped to 22%. Currently, 1.7 billion people are on social networks. Over the next three years, that audience will surpass 2.55 billion. By 2020, 5 billion people will enter the middle class and come online, while 50 billion devices will be connected to the “Internet of Things,” creating a digital network of virtually everything. And cloud computing – a $41 billion business in 2011 – will grow to a $241 billion business in that same time frame.

The exponential proliferation of mobile devices, social media, cloud technologies and the staggering amounts of data they generate have transformed the way we live and work. In fact, 61% of companies report that the majority of their people use smart devices for everything from email to project management to content creation.

While all of these advancements have improved our lives and provided us with greater opportunities for innovation than ever before, they have also accelerated the rise of an entirely new problem to contend with: unprecedented and crippling complexity.

The world may be getting smarter, but it hasn’t gotten any easier.
image

Never before have we invested more in our pursuit to innovate. People are working harder than ever, yet we’re actually accomplishing less. Productivity growth in almost every advanced economy is slowing or even declining, according to the OECD.

Complexity is becoming the most intractable issue of our time, an epidemic of wide-ranging proportions, affecting our lives, our work and even our health. Eight out of 10 children today think life is too complicated. A third of working professionals experience health issues as a consequence of stress associated with information overload. And 62% believe their personal relationships are suffering as a direct result of complexity.
image

Complexity comes at an enormous cost.

The implications for our global economy and business are just as profound. Creating all this complexity has consumed incredible amounts of human and financial capital. Sixty-three percent of executives cite complexity as a primary issue in escalating costs and as an impediment to growth. The 200 biggest companies in the world are losing over 10% of their annual profit because of complexity – over $237 billion. Furthermore, 40% of management time today is wasted on unproductive activities that will never drive a nickel of value to the bottom line.
image

How do we pull ourselves out from this expanding quagmire of complexity?

The answer is simple.

While technology is clearly contributing to the problem, it also holds the solution – a different kind of solution built on the idea that sophisticated technology doesn’t have to be complicated technology.
image

In a world besieged by complexity, “simple” wins. It brings clarity instead of confusion, action over paralysis. Simple allows companies and organizations to redefine the way they run by cutting across silos and fragmented, outdated processes – a single platform to open up innovation and scale across their businesses. So they can keep pace with the massive amounts of data being generated today and deliver insights in real time, helping them invent what’s next without disrupting what’s now.
image

Simple brings the convenience and reach of social networks to commerce; a single, global business network that can manage vast resources and processes in the simplest way possible – whether human, financial, material or commercial. It removes the obstructions from the way businesses interact and partner. Making everything needed to collaborate more effectively – from sourcing and orders through invoice and payment – seamless and straightforward.

But achieving simple won’t be easy.
image

Simple is hard. And it’s not just about making things easier – it’s about mastering the complexity that is inevitable and turning it into a competitive advantage. Nor is it about discarding current technology and simply replacing it with more. We’ve all done the best we can with the technology at hand. Now it’s time to make it all work together and run, well…simple. And to do so successfully takes years of practical experience solving and conquering the world’s most complex technological challenges.

If we simplify everything, we can do anything. We just need to run simple.
image

Running simple will have far-reaching implications for every industry. And the rewards are real and quantifiable. In the U.S., UK and Germany alone, companies that offer more simplicity will capture a share of the $50 billion in incremental revenues that come with it.
image

It will generate new opportunities for innovation and growth. Forge new partnerships in the networked economy. Create unique advantages for small and medium-sized businesses. Transform supply chains. Impact healthcare, government and public service. Making it simple for organizations to implement better solutions and simple for people to more easily control the complexity in their lives.

In the coming weeks, you might hear more from SAP on the many ways we can help the world run simple by reducing and managing the complexity that is the real enemy of innovation. Simply put, it’s what the world needs now.
