SAP AppHaus Network: Scaling the AppHaus Concept Worldwide

The Next View

In 2013, the SAP AppHaus in Heidelberg opened its doors to work collaboratively with SAP customers. The SAP AppHaus Network was formed in order to broaden the existing concept on a partner level. We are proud to announce our first SAP AppHaus Network member The Next View together with the Design Thinking Center in Amsterdam, Netherlands. More partners are about to join the SAP AppHaus Network in the near future to further expand and exchange the experiences on a global level.

How to Scale the Customer-Facing Concept of the SAP AppHaus

Design Thinking has become part of our DNA. With Design Thinking, we can include early customer and user feedback, play with ideas and push the creative power of diverse teams. It can inspire new and surprising forms of creative teamwork, leading to bold ideas and solutions that enable us and our customers to succeed in a rapidly changing world.

This is going to help us scale the AppHaus concept globally and at the same time it helps our partners to leverage their services. I am excited to see that our first partner “The Next View” already created case studies by combining the power of Design Thinking and Design Doing with the SAP HANA Cloud Platform.
