SES uses graphic entities to represent the business entities. Traditional enterprise systems use table entities. Why are the graphic entities better than the table entities?

Graphic entity has a lot advantages versus table entity. For the data types, the SES data are no longer limited to the text data. It can be geometry shapes, pictures, icons along with the text data. It can even be the multimedia types. This will tremendously enrich the data for the enterprise systems. For the data input, user can just directly draw the data on the screen. Compare to the data entry to the tables, this gives more flexibility. For the data display, just as everybody knows, "picture is worth a thousand words". It is more intuitive, easier to understand and takes less time to communicate between different parties. Most importantly, the graphic entities in SES are dynamic. They can be directly involved in the executions of workflows. The data can be changed dynamically along with the execution of the workflows. For example, if you drag an employee from one department to another, the employee will stay in the new dept. It's just that simple.
