The Next Generation of User Experience

Technology has progressed upward over time.

Look how far we’ve come – we’ve gone from pen and paper to desktops and smartphones, to now voice, VR, and intelligent bots. This is all a clear indicator that we are at an exciting point in our lives, not only because of the innovation that is brought to us and our businesses, but also because technology is finally taking some of the load off us, understanding what we need, and providing that for us. With the introduction of these new interaction paradigms and intelligence, we can make our solutions more productive, more efficient, and more personal – they are making our businesses run better and faster, interacting with us, and making our lives easier. And, at the same time, they are allowing us to be ourselves more, thereby creating more personal experiences.

If we look back in time even before technology started, pen and paper have always allowed us to interact with our thoughts in a natural way giving us a personal experience.

The technology platforms, on the other hand, was always needed time to understand how can we interact with it. From command line boring screens to the current bootstrap responsive UX. It was not easy few years back to create something that’s intuitive enough that a 2-year-old kid can play with it. But the time has changed, So is the industry, we need applications where we can work without enough training. A platform where we can interact, which is two way.

It was #TechEd Bangalore last year When I witnessed something that changed my way of thinking the User Experience should be.

I saw SAP’s project E-Quill, the next moment I reached a point saying its a natural User experience for Intelligent Enterprise.

You just write what you want on your tablet and its there for you, Isn’t it a magic, though not a magic we know its possible. The UX has reached its next level. With rising system intelligence that now brings us a personalized and efficient user experience? What would it look like to bring that to the enterprise? Let’s have a look on how it looks like. Get ready to say Wow.

By combining the natural, freestyle experience of pen and paper with the power of cutting-edge system intelligence, SAP Inscribe allows you to work in an intuitive and productive manner. You can explore your data by writing, scribbling, or drawing. You can drill down and refine your data step-by-step to get the answers that you need. You’ll have all the data you’re working within the front of you, which allows you to confidently analyze root causes, identify business challenges and opportunities, visualize your train of thought, make potential changes, and immediately see the impact. By utilizing the real-time insights and analysis, you will be prepared with all the information you need at a moment’s notice and thus make informed decisions, all the while enjoying a natural and intuitive UX.

By providing this paper-based experience, SAP Inscribe empowers you to apply your elemental, cognitive skills to software interaction. It brings a new and natural UX paradigm for the enterprise, freeing you from the constraints of traditional user interfaces.

This was just one perspective of what the next generation of user experience looks like. I’m excited to witness the next SAPTechEd see some more magic.


We are now in the era of Artificial Intelligent, Bots and personal assistants, Have you seen something like this which could be the future of user experience?
