Monthly Highlights from the SAP User Experience Community – Oct 1st
This month, I will start out with the section called “Design News from SAP” because we really do have big news!
- In case you haven’t heard already, SAP Won the Prestigious Red Dot Design Award for the Fiori 2.0 user experience in the design concept category. This really is a BIG deal for us at SAP and we are very proud and honored to have won this award.
- In SAP Fiori 2.0: Seriously Fun Business Application Design, Susan Galer talks to Maricel Cabahug, Senior Vice President of Global Design and User Experience at SAP, who shares her thoughts on winning the prestigious Red Dot Design Award for SAP Fiori 2.0, and how SAP is transforming business application design for the digital economy.

- Never give up! Design Thinking is all about wild ideas – and this also applies to us as coaches as well: so, if you don’t have a whiteboard to do the clustering, simply take a bus! Read Against All Odds – Designing for Transportation Management in Transit by Christian Knirsch for this interesting story about user research and resourcefulness.
