The Global Design Enablement team from SAP (that’s the team I work in) has sponsored a special UX edition of the SAPinsider magazine for customers. Working with a number of people throughout the company, we have created 5 articles about how SAP is executing on the UX strategy and focusing on exchange with customers.
The stories are now live on the SAPinsider online magazine. Below you can find the direct links to the UX-related articles and a summary of each one:
