Fiori and the Consumer Grade SAP Experience

As consumers, we have set the bar high when it comes to mobile application design and usability. Why is this not the case as users of SAP? Years of using the traditional SAP GUI have left us working with a complex transaction-based interface while tied to our PCs. SAP Fiori was developed on the basis of Design Thinking to offer a revolutionary approach to the SAP experience. An experience that is human centered, responsive to device platforms and easily customizable. Join us as we explore the ins and outs of SAP Fiori and offer a demonstration of this consumer-grade SAP experience. We will discuss system architecture, implementation and customization as we take a look at the future of SAP user interaction.
