Frequently Asked Questions

Still have questions about the SAP Digital Assistant Persona? Here are a few commonly asked questions.

Why is SAP Digital Assistant not human?

Studies show that people are uncomfortable interacting with something that appears to be human but actually isn’t. It’s best to set clear expectations at the beginning of the conversation that the bot is not a human. If necessary, when there is a handover to a human agent, users are certain that the human agent is actually a live human they are interacting with.

Why is SAP Digital Assistant genderless?

SAP Digital Assistant is an artificial intelligence (AI) and not a person with a body or gender identity. A genderless digital assistant doesn’t reinforce gender bias and increases the likelihood of user success. You can name the digital assistant based on your company or brand, like SAP Digital Assistant or ABCbot.

How to apply this persona into the design process?

The SAP Digital Assistant persona is the base persona of all bot design for SAP products. While the skills of each bot vary based on the context, the characteristics and chatting style are consistent across different products. In certain situations, you can adjust the tone of voice within the acceptable range of personality. See Personality Framework for more information.
