2014 saw a significant raise of interest and focus on the topic User Experience also across the north american market. This has led to the fact that in 2014 the great collaboration between the American SAP User Group (ASUG) and SAP was also extended with a special focus on the topic User Experience.
With support and direct contact into the SAP UX area the ASUG formed the ASUG SAP User Experience and Interface Influence Council (need to be a member to see the details page) under the chair of Damean-BF Chen in May 2014. This was accompanied by an ASUG WebCast series that lead into TechEd 2014. Towards the end of the year the Special Interest Group User Experience (SIG UX) was founded also headed by Damean-BF Chen. Feel free to join these groups if interested.
In the course of these activities a new ASUG WebCast series is being set up – focusing completely on the topic User Experience – which is planned to lead into SAPPHIRE 2015 / ASUG Annual Conference 2015 in May, but continuing with further topics afterwards. This series kicks off with the
“ASUG User Experience Community Launch Webcast –
Overview, UX Updates, Webcasts, and Meetups”
on February 6, 2015 for which you can register now – as long as you are an ASUG member. Below you can get an impression on what to expect during this kick off call.
“Join that WebCast for jumpstarting the hot topic of User Experience (UX) in 2015. This is a key topic for SAP Customers and ASUG will have a very special focus on this topic this year.
During this webcast you will have the opportunity to hear from Sam Yen (SAP Chief Design Officer) and Geoff Scott(ASUG CEO). Sam and Geoff will discuss the importance of UX, SAP’s and ASUG’s focus on this topic as well as the upcoming offerings for ASUG members. Additionally, Sam Yen will share some key UX updates during this session.
You will also be introduced to our ASUG User Experience Community volunteers along with key SAP UX contacts. You will learn how to best participate in this exciting community for UX education, networking, and influence.
In this session we will announce the launch of an educational UX webcast series to be held every two weeks. These webcasts have been crafted based on customer feedback, and they will lead up to UX community meetups at events such as 2015 ASUG Annual Conference and SAPPHIRE NOW as well as ASUG Chapter meetings.“
So feel free and encouraged to join ASUG and us in this Kick Off WebCast.
