2019 Usability Testing brought to you by ASUG

Date: May 7-9 2019
Location: Room S310C/D
Venue: Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, Florida

What happens during a usability test?

Understanding your needs and the way you work, helps ensure that we build software that is right for your business. During these one-on-one 60 minute sessions you can usability test new and existing software and give your feedback directly to the product teams that build them. It’s a great opportunity to work directly with SAP to help shape the future of SAP products.

Which participant role should I choose?

When you register you will get the option to pick a role as a tester or an observer. A tester actively tests the application while the observer watches the tester navigate through the session. The observer must still be capable of testing the solution as well since roles may be switched onsite. Regardless of the role you choose, feedback from both participants will be collected from the product team. If only one role is available for a given date or time, that means the other role has already been taken.

How many sessions can I sign up for?

We ask that you limit yourself to no more than four sessions to allow other attendees the chance to participate. If product teams need additional information from you in order to qualify your registration for their topic, they will contact you within five business days of your registration.

Why should I sign up now for usability testing instead of waiting until I arrive onsite?

Because choice topics and times fill up quickly. It’s always better to reserve your spot and let us know if you need to change or cancel it. If you wait until you are onsite, you run the risk of the topic being full. Also, if you take too long to register, you might have to wait on-site to see if a spot opens up, so book early. If you do decide to sign up on-site please stop by our Usability Testcenter Registration Desk (Room S210A/B) and we’ll show you the topics and times that are still available.

If you have any questions about registration or usability testing in general, please send an e-mail to usability.testcenter@sap.com.

Topic 6: ONE Business Configuration – Cloud Product Scoping Application

Are you interested in how your business processes fit to SAP solutions? Test the new “ONE Business Configuration – Cloud Product Scoping” app from SAP.

Description Enabling our customers to implement cloud solutions from SAP in an easy and efficient way is key for the success of SAP. Although the implementation process today is cumbersome and highly individual for every SAP solution, with the new approach being tested here, our customers will be enabled to drive all implementation tasks in a central workspace, providing a unified experience and significantly reducing implementation periods.

In this usability test, you will test the new scoping experience across our cloud offerings.

Role(s) All kinds of users involved in selecting and implementing cloud solutions, especially business power users and key users, LoB heads or implementation project leads.

It is not necessary for test participants to be involved in a cloud implementation, but they should have one of the target user roles mentioned above. Internal and external consultants are also okay, as long as they are involved in the process of selecting cloud solutions for their clients.

Previous experience Experience with implementation projects is a prerequisite for participating.
Preview Using a prototype, you will perform separate tasks and activities that need to be executed in the course of an implementation project.

Your first test task is to provide characteristics of your company and intended implementation as a high-level scoping. Based on this, a filtered scoping catalog guides you through the detailed scoping steps. If time allows, we then focus on the go-live activities that push the relevant tasks to the corresponding business power users or configuration experts.

During the usability test, you can discuss the user experience and the general concept of the tested solution before it is implemented.

You also have the chance to talk about the needs you and your company would have with respect to configuring and adjusting a cloud solution. In particular, you could discuss what the ideal process of an implementation project should look like and how such a project could, ideally, be supported.

Background information The new ONE Business Configuration Cloud Product Scoping app is a solution for all customers and partners who want to implement cloud solutions from SAP. The solution has the goal to make implementation projects for cloud solutions easier and more efficient and, most of all, enable implementation partners and customers to run those projects without the need to include consultants.

Topic 7: ONE Business Configuration – Configure and Deploy a Process of the Intelligent Enterprise

We are working on an easy-to-use and consistent user experience for scoping, business configuration, and implementation. Have you been involved in projects from a business configuration aspect? Are you responsible for business processes in your company? We are looking forward to your input and feedback at our test booth.

Description We want to evaluate the usability and functionality of a new entry point for scoping, configuring, and implementing cloud solutions from SAP. We want to enable our customers and partners to efficiently and consistently identify the relevant scope and configure, implement, run, and operate the processes for the intelligent suite. Your expertise will help us validate the roles of the involved personas and the overall user story.
Role(s) The focus is on key users and business power users involved in implementing cloud solutions from SAP, such as:

  • Business process experts
  • System architects
  • Business process managers
  • SAP process architects
  • Project leads

We are also interested in people who are responsible for aligning an enterprise solution to the actual business processes.

Previous experience Practical experience (or at least touch points) with business configuration is a must; former involvement in the implementation of a cloud solution from SAP is a plus.
Preview Test candidates will be asked to explore and provide feedback on a new user story for the business configuration and the overall implementation process of cloud solutions, including different handshake variants of the related tools and validation of the personas and roles.
Background information The concept envisions giving potential customers and prospects more options to explore the solution they are interested in before purchasing it. Shifting detailed configuration processes to an earlier phase of the implementation lifecycle leads to a need to adapt technical, process, and user experience aspects of the end-to-end configuration experience. We are striving to find the easiest and most intuitive interaction flow across phases, tools, and roles, including the handshake procedure between business configuration and technical implementation. To that end, we are interested in customer feedback on the process as well as the expectations and tasks of the persons involved with the new concept as those tasks will change slightly compared to the conventional process of today.
