SAP Screen Personas in SAPPHIRE NOW and TechEd Madrid
SAPPHIRE NOW and TechEd in Madrid represented another big week for SAP Screen Personas.
- The Expert Sessions were packed
- We had a very busy demo pod in the UX pavilion
- Vishal mentioned SAP Screen Personas in his keynote presentation
- TechEd Live TV conducted several interviews about SAP Screen Personas
Meet the Experts
Sebastian Steinhauer and Tobias Queck conducted several Expert Sessions on SAP Screen Personas – what it can do, how it works, and how customer benefits. As you can see from the photo below, the sessions were packed with many people crowding the aisles to see the demo and ask questions. The questions were similar to those that people asked at TechEd Las Vegas, so you can read those frequently asked questions about SAP Screen Personas.
One big difference between the Las Vegas and Madrid TechEd events was that the latter had an area dedicated to showing SAP’s various user experience technologies. Some were current products with beautiful user interfaces such as SAP’s cloud and mobility solutions. Others were sneak previews of what we are developing for future release. Sylvia Barnard worked tirelessly in the “Get Started Now” area, showing SAP Screen Personas throughout the event. Get Started Now allowed customers to see demos and spend some time building screens using Personas’ simple drag-and-drop interface.
Once again, Vishal emphasized the importance of design and user experience. He used SAP Screen Personas as one example of how SAP is innovating to address customer needs in this area.
