Think Tanks connect you with peers navigating the same challenges and opportunities as you. ASUG will facilitate an interactive peer-to-peer exchange where solutions are shared for topics specific to your role and interest.

  • Do you know that developing a custom Fiori app can breathe new life into your users’ experience by giving them a new, modern user interface (UI)? 

  • Has your organization embraced the use of SAP Fiori Apps, either off the shelf from SAP or custom developed? 

  • How does Fiori fit into your long-term UX road map? 

The format for Monday, Aug. 10 at 12 p.m. CT will include:  

  • Brief welcome and kickoff from ASUG 

  • Rapid case study led by ASUG member Jason Sprunk and Liz Simpson from Rockwell Automation 

  • The discussion will focus on: 

  • Rockwell Automation’s five-plus-year journey with using SAP Fiori to drive value and improve UX 

  • The organization’s current migration experiences to HTML5 

  • Hearing from attendees on their experiences with Fiori
