Recently, at SAP TechEd && d-code in Las Vegas, I had the opportunity to host a panel live from the ASUG studio on the show floor. I enjoyed a great discussion with four of our mobile experts covering several important topics when it comes to mobility areas; mobile security, mobile app development, and the user experience. Our discussion focused on mobile app usage in the enterprise touching all of these aspects. The panelists, Senthil Krishnapillai, of the Mobile Secure team, Chittu Ganesan of the SAP Fiori team, Gerhard Henig, of the SAP mobile platform team and Alan Panezic of our partner Mocana, all have a strong understanding of what it takes to ensure a great mobile user experience.
The interview was broken up into 3 phases – build, deploy and use. Each expert addressed questions regarding new ways to build and secure apps. The panelists agreed that user experience is not about pretty screens and nice graphics, but rather is something that affects the entire experience and has a major impact on the app’s usage. A great user experience helps the user get the information they need – in a secure fashion – without having to constantly sign in to networks and reenter credentials.
You can watch the recording of the 12 minute video below to see how the teams at SAP are working together to combat the burning issues of user experience, connectivity and security measures improved with SAP Mobile Secure, SAP Fiori and SAP Mobile Platform.
