Digital Experience at SapphireNOW 2017
While Digital Transformation isn’t a new term, the concept of ‘Digital Experience’ has been evolving over the past year as UX, design, mobility, collaboration and content services have advanced and consolidated in the cloud. I’ve been doing a lot of research on the concept of Digital Experience Platforms, and I’m excited to share how SAP is addressing this emerging category of enterprise software, which is designed to meet the needs of companies undergoing digital transformation – with the ultimate goal of providing better experiences for users.
I recently read Seth Godin’s words and find myself asking the same questions, “How can you squander even one more day not taking advantage of the greatest shifts of our generation? How dare you settle for less when the world has made it so easy for you to be remarkable?”
Evolving technology truly has made it so much easier for customers to be remarkable. Technologies and tools from SAP and other innovative companies afford unprecedented opportunity to optimize and evolve your company. Connecting customers, streamlining processes, improving collaboration, supporting decision-making are all aspects of your digital transformation strategy. Our goal is to be sure you don’t “squander even one more day”, as you continue on your Digital Transformation journey. We have some great information and sessions at SapphireNOW that we welcome you to join to learn more about Digital Experience.
UX and customer engagement should be considered in the context of a larger digital strategy. Some of the trends that will make digital experience increasingly important:
- Digital channels are the dominant ways people interact with companies
- Mobile devices are prolific
- People expect great experiences in every interaction across every channel
- Data insight allows for highly personalized experiences
- Voice & conversation are take DX beyond screens
Addressing these trends calls for an integrated platform approach to digital experience that streamlines design, development, collaboration, content management and engagement. You can get started with many of these topics while you explore SAP’s set of Digital Experience Services as part of SAP Cloud Platform that will be showcased at SapphireNOW in Orlando.
