In its second year, HIVE didn’t disappoint.
In keeping with the “design better together with immersive technologies” theme, last Wednesday’s internal SAP event saw over 20 presentations from SAP and external thought leaders that dove right into today’s most talk-about technologies. VR, AR, IoT, 3D, wearables – you name it, HIVE addressed it.
Sam Yen, the Chief Design Officer of SAP, set the tone for the day with an opening keynote that highlighted the growing presence of design thinking in today’s tech industry and budding responsibility of designers to improve the human-machine relationship.
Throughout the day, the over 250 SAP employees who attended heard from colleagues doing pioneering work in immersive technologies, as well as representatives from Amazon, Catabolic Design, Facebook, Frog Design, Ease VR, IXOMOXI, Space-Time Insight, Suzanimator, Vulfine and Zero Labs. See the full line up here.
As a forum facilitating connection and a platform for stimulating, inspiring content, HIVE serves an important role within SAP. For employees around the world who were unable to attend, we will be uploading complete footage of all of the presentations in the next few days. Until then, enjoy this video highlighting the event!
