SAP InnoXperience rocks: Leveraging Design Thinking to create innovative solutions
I had the pleasure to attend the first SAP InnoXperience Day in Asia. InnoXperience is a format where SAP Services invites customers for a day to learn about SAP’s innovation capabilities around big data, cloud, social and mobile, hear how other customers leveraged this new set of technology and finally get creative in teams by developing own innovation use case leveraging design thinking methodologies.
Close to 40 attendees from 20 different companies joint us for the InnoXperience day in Singapore on May 9th. In the beginning SAP Services shared insights on the latest technology trends and how SAP responds to this with innovative solutions around cloud, mobility and SAP HANA. I had the pleasure to showcase 3 stories where customers transformed their business with mobile solutions:
- Sysco Foods(US): They transformed the way the interact with their customers with the new Sysco Counts app for easy inventory and order
management boosting customer loyalty
- Kiewit (US): They significantly increased the productivity of their field employees with a new goods receipt app – full story will be made
public at SAPPHIRE this week
- A leading North American retailer which just launched an innovative mobile app for their customer loyalty program allowing them to push personalized offers onto their customers smartphone
Highlight of the day was the highly interactive Design Thinking session in the afternoon where the participants worked in 4 teams to identify and prototype a solution for an innovation challenge they wanted to get solved. Not surprisingly all teams selected Mobile & Consumer as area to focus on. Some energized hours later all teams had been able to present their prototyped solution:
