SAP CEO Bill McDermott had plenty to announce during his keynote at Sapphire 2015, but it all came back to one guiding principle: “run simple.” What strikes me about the latest news are phrases like “built for immediate personal consumption” or words used like “empathy.” This is the new normal. Whatever the software, system, or solution, SAP knows that it’s the user experience that counts.
And that’s why we want to do everything we can to empower customers and partners to get started implementing and personalizing those experiences. Interested in understanding end users and building consumer-like apps to create a delightful user experience? Check out the free openSAP course Build Your Own SAP Fiori App in the Cloud where you will learn about design thinking, empathy, and user experience. It’s open to anyone and the videos and hands-on exercises can be completed anytime and at your own pace.
What about just getting started with implementing the latest SAP has to offer for User Experience, Mobile, or Cloud? Check out SAP’s rapid-deployment solutions for each of these topics. These are pre-packaged best practices available at no additional charge for SAP customers and partners. Each is designed to have a predictable scope, predictable implementation time, and predictable outcome. You can follow the included step-by-step guides yourself to get started directly or you can work with SAP Services or SAP Partners. See below for links to more details and direct downloads.
